About the event

Situated in the heart of Europe, Germany is not only the UK’s number one European export market but also number two world-wide, with annual sales of more than €2 trillion in goods and services.  Germany experienced a 3% economic growth in 2011 and despite the current challenging climate expects to achieve 1% in 2012.

Sponsored by Midlands Enterprise Europe Network, this event will provide you with:


·          The latest market developments and key considerations for doing business in Germany


·          An overview of the business opportunities available in a wide range of sectors including, among others, vehicles and automotive components, petroleum and gas, healthcare, aerospace, ICT, chemicals and creative industries.


·          Expert advice on the practicalities of overcoming barriers to entry


·          An understanding of German business culture and etiquette to assist you to communicate more effectively with your counterparts.


·          Practical experience of how Newson Gale Ltd, a Nottinghamshire based company, successfully entered the German market – the challenges they faced and the rewards they enjoy today


Prior to the seminar, there will also be the opportunity to meet on a one to one basis with our guest speaker from the British Consulate General Dusseldorf and our sponsor Challinors Solicitors.
