Steps at the UKTI 'Explore Asia' Conference
Explore Asia - a world of opportunities for UK companies - was a full day conference and reception in London on 9 February 2012, jointly hosted by UKTI and RBS.
The event brought together UKTI expertise and RBS International Trade expertise from Asia to update British companies on the business environment and opportunities in 12 growing markets across Asia. UKTI and RBS invited a series of successful business leaders to share their knowledge and experience of working in Asia - and Robbie Swales joined the team to talk about Steps and our work in India.
Attendees at the event benefitted from learning about doing business in Asia with on-the-ground information and advice from the experts. Some key offers of the conference were:
- Interactive workshops on the business and political climate in 12 Asian markets.
- One-to-one meetings for tailored business advice from UKTI experts, High Value Opportunity Specialists and RBS International Trade experts.
- Workshops to launch the latest research from UKTI on the Smart Cities of the Future in Asia.
- Access to UK Companies thriving in Asia: their success stories and lessons learned.
- Top keynote speakers including Tamara Mellon, UK Business Ambassador and Founder and former Chief Creative Officer of Jimmy Choo and Theo Paphitis, Businessman, star of Dragon's Den, Chairman of Boux Avenue lingerie and Ryman Stationery and presenter of 'Theo's Adventure Capitalists'.
- Networking opportunities with experts, speakers and delegates in a dedicated Advice Zone and at a Networking Reception to close the day.
The day was a great success and Steps were delighted to meet with and offer advice to so many individuals who are beginning their export journey. We are proud of Steps India and the growth of our offering in the region - and it was a positive experience to share our insights and pick up new ideas from other business leaders, entrepreneurs and members of the business community.
