Why the USA?

The United States is the largest, most competitive and technologically advanced economy in the world. US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has consistently seen growth of 1.8% or more since 2011. It is the UK's top export destination.

The US is the world's largest market and it has the world's largest private sector. It also has:

  • Low regulatory barriers
  • Minimal language barriers
  • Access to a global supply chain, which can lead to exports for other markets
  • A strong rule of law

Opportunities in the USA

We will extend the visit to either Kentucky or Denver on 8-9 November 2017. 

Due to its location in the central United States and Bourbon manufacturing, Kentucky is most suitable for products sold via the internet, distribution, food and drink companies. 

Denver is the location for federal, high-tech, educational, commercial, financial, cultural, tourist, storage, and distribution services.

Registration for this market visit has now closed.
