A major event is being staged in Birmingham to help businesses grow their international online presence and companies located in the Marches are invited to get involved.

Go GlobalThe 2020 Go Global digital event has been organised by the Department for International Trade (DIT) and Midlands Engine and will be held on February 13 at the National Exhibition Centre.

The conference has been designed to support business owners looking to grow their online brand and build international e-commerce markets.

The event will connect businesses with e-commerce experts and international trade advisers from DIT to explore how they can expand their global reach and increase their exports through e-marketplaces.
