If you are new to exporting or occasionally trade internationally Dublin is an excellent place to familiarise yourself with the Irish market before fully committing to exporting. The programme is open to all companies and provides an opportunity to test a more strategic way of securing business. Ireland is the UK’s largest export market in food and drink, and second largest market in clothing, fashion and footwear. Trade in other sectors continues to grow.

Register your interest by Friday 15 September to ensure you are considered for the programme.
