Summary:

We kicked off in London by exhibiting at the Brexit and Global Expansion Summit 2016, held at the Intercontinental o2 in Greenwich between 16th-18th October. Talks centred around Britain’s future position in the global marketplace, and potential opportunities for inbound and outbound trade and expansion. The dialogue was certainly spirited, with representatives from four of the main UK political parties the guests-of-honour at Sunday’s keynote sessions, in addition to a busy programme of speakers from large multi-national corporations like Samsung, Microsoft and Coca-Cola offering their own business insights and speculation on the future of Global Expansion. Aside from the speeches and sessions, Mauve spoke to delegates at the exhibit and dedicated networking events about possible international growth and mobility opportunities for their organisations.

Summary:

“There is no clear plan of how Brexit is going to play out, but the best thing we can do is to make decisions that move businesses forward instead of putting them on hold. We have heard some businesses talking about leaving the London area, yet we have seen others moving in. I think it’s going to carry on that way for a little while yet,” says Kerry Hallard, president of the Global Sourcing Association, in an interview with Emerging Europe.
