Event Summary

What is the Brexit & Global Expansion Summit?

The event is a three-day conference in London, UK for corporate executives and government officials to explore global expansion opportunities in light of the new Brexit landscape.

About the event

Brexit & Global Expansion Summit is the world's leading event on Brexit.

It is uniquely timed to provide a crucial platform for learning, discussion and networking between corporate and government leaders on international expansion and the impact of Brexit on FDI globally.

Following the EU referendum, business leaders are already weighing their options and exploring alternative international markets for their investments. Will businesses planning a move into the UK reconsider their next move? Will companies with a current home in the UK, make relocation plans? What contingency plans are emerging? How will governments and investment agencies around the world respond?

The event includes a comprehensive conference programme with keynotes, multiple track sessions, a large exhibition and welcomes over 1,000 delegate and 120+ speakers. In addition, Brexit & Global Expansion Summit will play host to a series of high level one-to-one meetings, a range of networking activities and deep dive workshops.

Companies will be able to capture up-to-date market information, benchmark against industry leaders and network with a wide variety of global business & government stakeholders as they plan their next steps in light of Brexit.
