Going Global in London!

3 07 2014

In the month that Skrivanek prepared to open a new office in Sao Paolo (Brazil) giving it a presence on four continents it was perhaps fitting that the company was represented at Going Global, part of The Business Show 2014 “Europe’s Biggest Business Event” which took place 15th and 16th May at the prestigious ExCel, London.

Over 350 exhibitors and thousands of visitors gathered at the spectacular Thames side venue for 250 seminars, 170 workshops and two days of intensive networking. A major reason for Skrivanek’s participation was the chance to meet the widest range of potential clients possible and that certainly was the case with a wide variety of companies represented from small start-ups to major multinational corporations.

Key Account Manager Joe Atkinson of Skrivanek GroupHighlights included speed networking sessions and a giant information exchange wall as well as a full programme of seminars and workshops to suit all tastes. Thursday drinks reception held in beautiful late afternoon sunshine on the Excel’s riverside terrace was also an excellent opportunity for informal networking with the famous skyline of the City of London reminding everyone of the main reason for being there… business!

On Friday An Stuyven, Skrivanek’s Global Marketing and Sales Manager gave a presentation as part of GALA’s contribution to the event. An spoke on the very pertinent theme of “Translation Tips for Going Global” and her insight into the translation process combined with practical advice designed to save would be exporters’ time, money and stress was much appreciated by the audience.

As the name of the event suggests a lot of these companies will be Going Global in the near future and with the contacts made in London Skrivanek will be there to assist them.
