Are you ready to export?

Accessing trade networks

When you're moving into a new business area, it pays to use the advice of people who already have significant experience. Other people who have been through the same processes can offer invaluable advice. They can also warn you of the potential pitfalls.

Invest Northern Ireland runs a suite of services and programmes that can help you to research export markets, develop your export know-how and take part in trade visits and exhibitions. Read more about Invest NI's support for exporting.

Networking

Invest Northern Ireland also supports businesses working collaboratively. This support is designed to make Northern Ireland businesses aware of potential international trading partners and put them in touch wherever possible. Find out more about working collaboratively.

Chamber Connections from the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry can help you access trade advice and establish contacts in international markets. Connecting You to International Chambers can put businesses in touch with contacts in overseas market. Connecting You to Local Businesses can link you to experienced exporters, so you can benefit from their experience.
