Looking to expand into international markets? Looking to grow international sales?  Taking England to the World - is a one-day training programme, in conjunction with Google Digital Garage, which aims to help your business become international-ready. 

Developed as part of the government’s £40M Discover England Fund, this course is designed to equip you with the skills and foundations to develop and promote your product for sale in international markets.  

This training programme is aimed at suppliers from all sectors of the English travel industry – from accommodation to attractions, and from excursions to experiences. Whilst particularly suitable for SMEs, larger organisations are also welcome to attend.
