ncn_logo_300NOTTS firms are being invited to a free event which will offer advice about doing business in Germany.   The event, organised by the Invest in Nottingham Club, will take place on June 10 at the Adams Restaurant at New College Nottingham.   The club has been working with the University of Nottingham, UK Trade and Investment, Nottingham City Council and the Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce to get more local firms doing business with Germany.

The club’s chief executive Simon Gray, pictured, said the event, which runs from 5pm-7pm, will be a perfect way to learn more about the German market.   “This event is aimed at anyone who is keen to pursue trade opportunities in Germany, as we are inviting companies who are already experienced in the German market place,” he said   “Figures show that Germany is the UK’s number one export market in Europe and number two worldwide, accumulating annual sales of more than two trillion euros in goods and services.”

He added: “We are extremely keen to hear from and meet local companies who are interested in looking at Germany as an export opportunity. We are equally keen to speak to companies who are already trading in Germany or are German companies based in Nottingham.”

The event will begin with a drinks reception at 5pm followed by talks on the pursuit of German trade opportunities.   Speakers at the event will include Jens Mullak, chairman of the Germany Interest Group for Invest in Nottingham Club and managing director of INIT Innovations in Transportation Ltd, as well as John Bailey, managing director of Fenrix Limited, which he created in 2009 to help chief executives and leadership teams drive growth for their organisations.

John and his team have led over 20 strategy assignments for large multinationals across Europe and Asia.   Jens Mullak said: “There are lots of opportunities for Nottingham and Nottinghamshire businesses in Germany. We are looking at practical ways for businesses to get more involved.”
