With under one year to go until the 2014 FIFA World Cup and three until the 2016 Olympic Games, everyone is talking about Brazil. The 5th largest country in the world has a rapidly developing economy providing a variety of opportunities for UK companies in all sectors.
About the event
Designated one of UKTI's High Growth Markets Brazil is simply too big a market to ignore. It is the fifth-largest country in the world with a population of around 185 million people. It has one of the world’s most rapidly developing economies and a GDP per head greater than either India or China.
With a broad and sophisticated industrial base, if a product or service is generally competitive in world markets it is also likely to sell well in Brazil. Consumers and businesses have developed high standards both for quality and value for money.
Discover more about the huge potential of this high-growth market and how your business could maximise on the opportunities by joining us for an evening seminar, funded by the European Regional Development Fund, on Wednesday 16 October at the Mickleover Court Hotel, Derby.
Our guest speakers, including Chris Wall, Business Specialist at UKTI; Rob Williams, Cross-Cultural Consultant at International House and Richard Sinden, Head of Business Development and Marketing at B&V Water Treatment all have first hand experiences of doing business in Brazil, and will share with you:
- Expert advice, latest market developments and key considerations for doing business in Brazil
- An understanding of the Brazilian business culture and etiquette to assist you to communicate more effectively with your counterparts
- Practical experience of how B&V Water Treatment, successfully entered the Brazilian market – the challenges they faced and the rewards they enjoy today
Don’t overlook the opportunities that Brazil has to offer and book a place now!
