Making the UK a trading powerhouse

As part of this year’s CBI Annual Conference, we are giving members the exciting opportunity to attend some of our sessions in person and form part of a live audience.

The CBI Annual Conference is the UK’s flagship event in both the business and political calendar. This year's event will bring together influential leaders to explore ‘the economic vision of the nation’, and discuss the critical issues facing business.

Join CBI President Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE, DL and guest speakers for a live panel discussion on making the UK a trading powerhouse at The Great Hall, Swansea University.

Trade plays a major role in our economy. It allows firms to find new sources of growth and revenue to become more productive and innovative. Yet the UK’s share of global trade has been falling.

Now is the time to renew the UK’s place as an economic player on the world stage. We have the potential to develop more ‘superstar’ exporters. We also want to see more SMEs exporting. There are significant opportunities for certain sectors and types of firms where the UK has world-beating capabilities.

Join us at this session to experience the UK’s highest profile business conference and explore the major growth opportunities in key overseas markets. 

Confirmed speakers:

  • Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE, DL, President, CBI
  • Nimesh Patel, Chief Financial Officer, Spirax-Sarco Engineering Plc
  • Chris Meadows, Director, CSconnected
