A regional lifestyle, giftware and accessories exhibition is being held in Vienna to help UK businesses establish contacts in Europe.

Following on from the highly successful events in 2010 and 2011, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) are organising a regional lifestyle exhibition on 15 and 16 October 2013 at the Residence of the British Ambassador in Vienna.

Up to 40 UK companies are invited to present their products to buyers, import distributors, agents, store owners and trade press from 16 countries throughout Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).

In addition, UKTI Trade Advisers from across CEE will be present to offer insights into the lifestyle and giftware opportunities in their markets. As well as being able to meet the CEE delegates formally across a table, the participating companies and the delegates will be invited to a networking reception at the Ambassador’s Residence on the evening of 15 October.

The expected attending delegates are from Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine.

Tim Buisseret, Head of UKTI Bulgaria, said:

The UK has a well-established and deserved reputation for its lifestyle and giftware industry and so the exhibition in Vienna will be a great opportunity for Bulgarian distributors and retailers to meet leading UK companies in these areas and share valuable experiences with them. I am both very pleased that such an event is taking place and certain that it will be highly useful.

Participation is part-sponsored by UK Trade & Investment. UK businesses can register to attend the event.
