Brexit has opened the door for Queensland exporters to pursue more opportunities in the UK’s multi-billion-pound procurement industry.

In 2018–19, UK Government procurement spending on external suppliers exceeded £292 billion and Brexit has freed it from EU procurement requirements.

  • the UK’s public and private procurement process works
  • you can become market ready and develop a strategy for success in this market.

The webinar will cover:

  • best practice for preparing successful bids
  • opportunities available
  • practical advice on doing business in the UK.

Hear from our UK experts:

  • Warren Bartlett, Deputy Commissioner – Europe, Trade and Investment Queensland
  • Mark Donovan, Senior Business Relationship Manager, UK Department International Trade, British Consulate-General, Brisbane – Mark will outline why now is a good time to do business in the UK. The UK Government’s Department of International Trade supports Australian companies to invest in the UK by providing practical support and advice on doing business there.
  • David Anderton, Strategic Bid Director, Tenders AU and former Senior Consultant, Tenders UK – David will help you understand the UK public and private sector systems, and offer tips for preparing bids and winning tenders.
