International Trade Campaign

The BILD: Nominate Your Business

London (UK), February 2017 - The Department for International Trade will shortly be kicking of its new GREAT Britain International Trade Campaign. This campaign will generate demand for British goods and services from business and government buyers internationally. Throughout the campaign, they will be highlighting exceptional companies, products, and services that represent the very best of what the UK has to offer.

The British Institute for Learning & Development (The BILD), as a UKTI Trade Partner, has been asked to nominate its members for possible inclusion in the campaign. The involvement may vary from being a case study to being showcased on its new website to inclusion in their advertising visuals.
