UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) is organising a Green Technology Road Show, visiting three centres around the UK with a number of international buyers.

Why should you attend?

It is particularly useful for companies who are new to these markets. In each of the three centres there will be a short seminar followed by a Meet the Buyer event that will deliver meaningful buyer/supplier meetings and potentially lead to a number of contracts being won.
