Vince Cable, secretary of state for business, innovation and skills, and organisers of the International Festival for Business (IFB) attended a UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) event at the British Residence in Brussels on 11 February.
Cable urged businesses from Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg to take advantage of the multitude of opportunities offered by the IFB 2014.
IFB 2014, which will take place in Liverpool across 50 days in June and July, will comprise 200 events and a cultural programme.
The festival aims to offer businesses of all sizes a platform to make global connections, exchange new ideas, promote their products, create new partnerships and seek new sources of finance.
“The International Festival for Business will be a catalyst for businesses large and small to accelerate their expansion plans and fulfil their trade ambitions,” said Cable. “It is rare that an event of this magnitude is staged anywhere so I hope that businesses across the whole of the EU will seize this opportunity and use it to showcase their products and services to the rest of the world.”
