Find overseas customers and export opportunities

3. Get help from a trade specialist

The Department for International Trade (DIT) has a network of trade specialists who can also help you find overseas customers by:

  • helping you prepare for a trade show or overseas market visit (sometimes grants are available - check with the event organiser)
  • arranging introductions to potential overseas buyers, agents and distributors (there’s a charge for this service)

To find out more, first see the export guidance on, then contact a trade adviser in your region.
