British Marine is partnering with the Department for International Trade (DIT) to provide its members with the opportunity to meet a dedicated trade adviser and discuss export plans, including the department’s own Internationalisation Fund.

Members will be able to meet with DIT south-east trade adviser David Ryan on Friday 5 November to discuss the Internationalisation Fund, including the application process and how the funds can be used to support overseas activity.

The Internationalisation Fund currently provides matched funding, with grants of up to £9,000 available for consultancy support, market research and can be used towards overseas attendance at trade shows. Businesses seeking these funds must speak to their regional trade adviser before they apply which is why we are partnering to provide this opportunity.

The 20-minute appointments will be available on a first-come first serve basis. These will be held in British Marine’s office in Tagus House, Southampton and will provide members with the information they need to apply for the funding. Depending on the number of people registering, we may offer future drop-in sessions.

Members based in the south-east wishing to register their interest should email Frances Marley on indicating their preference for a morning or afternoon appointment on Friday 5 November.
