Deyton Bell launch Transatlantic Business Forum


Deyton Bell, the Cambridge based business development specialists are delighted to announce the launch of an exciting new initiative, The Transatlantic Business Forum, which takes place on Thursday March 10th at Robinson College, Cambridge.

The Transatlantic Business Forum is a Deyton Bell initiative in association with The State of North Dakota, The Pittsburgh Regional Alliance and UKTI and aims to decipher some of the myths associated with doing business in the US. The Transatlantic Business Forum will provide appropriate information, expert advice and opinion on key issues that will not only enable delegates to explore transatlantic business issues but will also instigate connectivity to enable businesses to build bridges and commercial relationships to develop opportunities in the US for both trade and investment purposes.

Deyton Bell’s Managing Director Chris Parkhouse said “The US is still the leading single market for nearly every significant business sector but this ‘familiar market’ has sometimes been overlooked in recent times in favour of other more newly emerging opportunities in other countries. The UK is the largest foreign investor in the US and the US is Britain’s largest single export market. There are a great many extremely lucrative opportunities for British businesses in the US and the Transatlantic Business Forum will help businesses to identify them. The Forum is a must for anyone who is considering US business development and will give delegates an insight into the vast opportunities available to UK companies."

There has been a great deal of interest from potential speakers representing blue chip organisations from both sides of the Atlantic and Deyton Bell can confirm that the keynote speakers participating include:
• Julie Snyder - Deputy Senior Commercial Officer, Commercial Counselor, US Embassy, London
• The Government of the State of North Dakota
• Suzi Pegg - Vice President, The Pittsburgh Regional Alliance
• Vic Annells – International Trade Director, UKTI East of England
• Graeme Leach – Chief Economist, Institute of Directors

Commenting on The Transatlantic Business Forum, Vic Annells International Trade Director for UKTI East of England said: ‘With exports from our region to the US currently worth around £2.8bn and growing at 5.9% year on year it is vital that companies engage with senior decision makers from business and government in the US. I am delighted UKTI can participate in this event which should be a pre-requisite for those wishing to make the most of the opportunities available in the world’s largest economy.’

Suzi Pegg, Vice President of The Pittsburgh Regional Alliance said “Pittsburgh has become internationally recognized for creating partnerships connecting our region to business decision makers and influencers around the globe. This region welcomes the opportunity to build new business relationships and connections through The Transatlantic Business Forum event, where we will have the opportunity to introduce companies to this exceptional collaborative live-work-play destination,”

Chris Parkhouse added "We are delighted to be welcoming such prestigious expert speakers to The Transatlantic Forum. Delegates who attend will get a valuable opportunity to hear from such outstanding contributors. We’ll be announcing additional speakers in due course but at this stage would like to emphasise how grateful we are to The State of North Dakota, The Pittsburgh Regional Alliance and UKTI who are doing so much to support this important initiative.”
