Trade Missions

We’ve been named headline sponsor of the International Trade Forum. The Yorkshire-based ITF is a membership-based organisation focused on helping UK businesses and SMEs to export and trade internationally. The ITF has been recognised by UKTI as well as a number of Chambers of Commerce for its efforts in the promotion of international trade. The ITF provides a wide range of initiatives to help companies to export, including workshops, access to experts in international trade, and also undertakes trade missions overseas. Our sponsorship of the ITF is part of a significant portfolio of initiatives – such as the Santander Trade Portal and Santander Trade Club - to help UK companies trade overseas. Jon Gillgrass, International Director, Santander said: 'We’re delighted to be supporting the International Trade Forum. Its ethos and drive complements our dedication to UK businesses looking to better understand the enormous benefits of exporting and trading overseas. We are ramping up our focus on international trade in 2015 as we see this as one of the most significant drivers of the UK economy.'
