In addition, case studies will be presented by exporters from the pet products, houseware, gardening, and DIY sectors, including Ben Braithwaite of ChickenGuard, Steve Turner of Spear & Jackson and Dan Robson of Grow Sow Simple.

The afternoon break will be followed by the keynote address from Shelley Boyle, head of business development at online retailer ManoMano.

Amanda Sizer Barrett, director general of Gardenex and PetQuip, said: “The Future for International Trade conference is always a lively and informative occasion focussing on retail trends in international markets, the practicalities of export logistics, compliance and the inspiring case studies by some of the UK’s leading exporters.
