How can you beat The Brexit Effect and retain your competitive edge? By visiting Surface World Live 2018!

Many UK Companies who would normally be sourcing equipment and supplies throughout Europe are already finding that with the weak £ to € ratio they may get much better value here in the UK or from companies in the EU that have restructured their supply and services taking this into account.

With trading terms between the EU and the UK currently unknown it may make better business sense to build stronger business links with UK based suppliers, many of which are already putting together new business strategies and prices to gain your valuable business, or now might be the time to consider changing to a new EU based supplier that have considered all outcomes post Brexit and looked at what they can offer to ensure better terms that will allow continued trade at competitive rates after the UK leaves the EU.

“The supply chain from EU Countries to the UK Surface Finishing Industry is considerable. The leading suppliers to the industry will be available for you to discuss maintaining or altering your future orders and services post Brexit. The show gives you the opportunity to talk things through at an early stage and see your options. Discuss the Brexit Effect and how this may impact on your business with leading suppliers all under one roof on the 19th & 20th September at the NEC.” Nigel Bean, Managing Director, Surface World Live 2018, explains why it is vital to attend the only show based in the UK that is dedicated to Surface Finishing.

Whichever way you are considering taking your business needs a visit to Surface World Live 2018 is the perfect sounding platform to ask leading experts for advice and solutions to your surface finishing questions. If you are looking to streamline your supply chain to your customers, and also ensure you can offer competitive products, services and prices, visiting Surface World Live 2018 may also save you money as there will be plenty of exclusive offers and discounts only available to visitors at the show.

Surface World Live 2018 is completely sold out and is bigger than last year’s show. With exhibitors coming from within the UK, Europe, and as far as the USA, this year’s show is truly a global event not to be missed.

At the show you can also gain valuable knowledge by attending any of the seminars in the two live theatres.

In Live Theatre 1 Stuart Alldis from Creative Digital Agency (CDA) will be on hand throughout the show to help you find out how to utilise your online presence to gain more customers and increase productivity and awareness of your business. He will be holding informative seminars and a series of work-shops during the two day show.
