Our supplier fairs and events connect UK businesses with overseas buyers
Helping you secure opportunities with large international projects.
Connecting UK suppliers with international opportunities
UKEF’s Supplier Fair model is an ambitious programme to help increase UK content in overseas projects through high profile, hybrid networking events. These events place relevant UK suppliers directly in front of international buyers, who are actively looking for UK products and services for their overseas projects.
Raise your international profile
Our Supplier Fairs and events give UK exporters the opportunity to win business with a UKEF-backed project. They include one-to-one meetings and networking opportunities for procurement teams from leading Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractors to engage with UK suppliers. You will also find information on how UKEF supports the full life cycle of the supply chain by connecting our domestic and international offering.
An international network of support
We work closely with the Department for International Trade, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, HM trade commissioners and British ambassadors to engage with overseas governments and multinational companies looking to buy from the UK.
We have a global network of International Export Finance Executives that represent UKEF in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and North America. Their role is to engage with project owners overseas and help them to engage with the UK supply chain.
