The International Festival of Business 2016 (IFB2016), which aims to attract thousands of delegates from around the world to Liverpool, has confirmed the attendance of more than 300 overseas companies.
The event, which will bring together approximately 30,000 international visitors, will be held at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool from 13 June to 1 July.
It is estimated that 60 per cent of the attendees will be from the US, Europe and China, which are key regions for export and investment and are believed to present a wealth of opportunities to British companies.
Chris Heyes (pictured), head of international at IFB2016, said: “The number of delegations that are coming to IFB2016 with a keen interest in forging links with British SMEs, start-ups and entrepreneurs is a true testament to the significance of this festival.
“There will be deals struck, relationships formed and business plans put in place that could mean every UK business who is getting involved with IFB2016 will trade with every continent in the world.”
