The free event at Fusion@Magna in Rotherham is for entrepreneurs looking to take their first step in exports, for businesses wanting to get top tips on expanding overseas operations or for anyone wanting to meet valuable contacts who can share their expertise and global networks. 

Those attending the event will hear from three leading local exporters who will share their export journey and their top tips for finding success on foreign shores. Crucially, they will also answer your questions and help you overcome any export obstacles you face.

It is part of a joint initiative between UKTI Yorkshire and Humber and the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership and aims to help grow the Rotherham Economy by helping every business fulfil their export potential.

The companies speaking at the event will be:

Gala Tents – Founded by Jason Mace in Rotherham is now one of the world's leading distributors of quality marquees and gazebos. After spotting a gap in the market when he had a millennium party planning crisis, Jason now turns over more than £10m a year and exports to dozens of countries around
the globe.

Newburgh Engineering – This advanced manufacturing business works on some of the world's most demanding engineering projects from nuclear reactors and state-of-theart military equipment to the next world record breaking land speed attempt with the supersonic Bloodhound project. It has customers in a wealth of countries and is in high demand around the globe.

Pyronix - As a world leader in the manufacture of security equipment including control panels, detectors and external sounds, Pyronix has grown 15% every year since 2010 and is now on course to reach £20m of annual sales by the end of 2014, 40% of which is in international markets.

It's a unique opportunity to get valuable insights into conquering exports and the UKTI's expert team of advisors will also be on hand to advise on the support and guidance available to businesses in the town.
