Exporting is GREAT – part of the world-renowned GREAT campaign – is the UK’s most ambitious export campaign to date.

For the first time, it will present real-time export opportunities across media outlets and digital channels to businesses - of all sizes, from across sectors and every region of the UK - that they can apply for immediately.

The platform will go live with hundreds of business opportunities, which will be available here. Around 1000 more will come online each month.

Coinciding with the launch, a series of events will be held across the UK as part of Exporting is GREAT Week. These are aimed at more experienced exporters as well as those that are about to begin their journey.

In Wales this will be ExploreExport an all day event taking place at Cardiff’s SWALEC stadium on Thursday November 12, 2015.

The campaign will provide advice and expertise to support businesses at every step on their exporting journey, from initial interest to selling in-market. This will include a year-long Exporting is GREAT roadshow that will travel the length and breadth of the country giving face-to-face assistance to first-time exporters using the latest technology to connect businesses with live export opportunities.

Companies will also have the chance to visit the Export Hub truck, which will be touring across Wales in February 2016.

Through the campaign businesses will also benefit from strong commercial partnerships: increasing the supply of available trade opportunities, providing offers and discounted services to SMEs.
