The Department for International Trade is launching a new export directory that aims to promote British goods on an unprecedented scale. The Department says:
“Potential overseas customers and buyers from global markets will be able to search for UK companies and organisations that will supply the products, services and skills they need. The Directory will be launched in November 2016 and will be supported by international marketing activity to increase and sustain the ongoing demand for UK goods and services.
“The Directory heralds an incredible opportunity for the UK economy and is part of wider government plans for a digital service that will provide a world-leading platform for British businesses.”
Jane Montgomery, Managing Director of FSPA, adds: “The directory will help to promote the British sport and play sector for businesses who want to pursue opportunities to export. Post-Brexit, it’s not just about managing the challenges Brexit presents, but also about exploiting opportunities to reach out beyond traditional markets.
“We’ll keep you posted on further developments in advance of its launch in November.”

It’s great to be part of an organisation that campaigns for investment in children’s play facilities and which raises the standards of the entire industry.
Having the support of the FSPA behind us is tremendously beneficial and greatly enhances the offering to our membership.
I have been a member of SPE for many years now and every member shows a 100% commitment to promote participation in sport and play in the UK.
It’s sometimes difficult to get heard when you stand on your own. But when you're part of a respected body like the FSPA, people listen and things start to happen.
The opportunity to meet with like-minded people across our sector to discuss some of the challenges is always invaluable.
Working together as a group of companies creates a stronger voice for the play industry, which benefits both suppliers and customers.
