The Essex Chambers of Commerce, in partnership with Chelmsford City Council, will hold their first Essex Global Summit at Hylands House on 22 May this year. The new event aims to bring together key stakeholders, industry leaders, policymakers, and experts from the world of international trade.

International trade opportunities explored

The Essex Global Summit will serve as a dynamic platform to address challenges in the ever-evolving landscape of international trade. There’ll be opportunities to explore collaboration, discuss emerging trends and promote sustained economic growth.

Attendance is free, and participants can expect insightful keynote presentations and trade talks, an engaging panel discussion and networking opportunities that enable connections and the exchange of innovative ideas.

Denise Rossiter, CEO of Essex Chambers of Commerce says the new event could help local businesses think big.

“The Essex Global Summit is the first event of its kind for the Chambers and we are delighted to be working in partnership with Chelmsford City Council to focus on the aspect of international trading across the county – and beyond!

Essex is a county full of dynamic businesses and go getters, and we are here to support them all.

Any business can trade internationally, and the Summit is an amazing opportunity to gather our best experts and industry leaders, to discuss, promote and explain the future of international trade.”
