ATC Language Industry Summit 2019

Ben at the venue

Last week Ben Ablett, our Head of Sales at Marketing visited Greenwich to attend ATC’s Language Industry Summit. These are his thoughts on the event.

The two days were packed full of thought-provoking presentations and in-depth discussions covering all corners of the industry. Each session offered something new which helped to keep the agenda fresh and the delegates energized. For me, the highlights were as follows: Continue reading ATC Language Industry Summit 2019

Thinking about doing business with Vietnam?

Doing Business with Vietnam

Market to buy from – Market to sell to

organised by the Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce  International Sector

Monday 10 March 2014, 4.30-7.30pm

Conference Suite, Hunt & Coombs Solicitors, 35 Thorpe Road, Peterborough, PE3 6AG

Vietnam is rapidly gaining a reputation as the low cost centre for sourcing manufactured goods.  Drivers including low labour rates, a highly motivated workforce and a government keen to develop a market economy are similar to those found in China 25 years ago. With this comes a strong draw on imports and opportunities are growing for exporters to secure early stage entry into what is becoming a key Asian market.

This event, organised by the Chambers’ International Sector, will present the opportunities for both those seeking to source goods and those wishing to export products and services.

The event will focus on providing practical advice and support on accessing the market. It is designed both for companies looking to gain or increase exposure to the rapidly growing Far East economies and those wishing to maximise competitive advantage through low cost product sourcing.
