Automotive Export Week 2020

Connecting you to Global Automotive Business Opportunities 

Join the NEAA for our first Automotive Export Week.


The UK is a key player in the global automotive sector. In 2019, the total value of trade generated by import and exports of motor vehicles, parts and components amounted to over £100 billion. Despite increasingly challenging international trade conditions the automotive sector remains the UK’s largest exporter of industrial goods.

Delivered in conjunction with the Supply Chain North East programme and the Department for International Trade (DIT), this virtual event invites businesses at every stage of the process to explore key automotive markets, learn about all aspects of international trade, seek support from market specialists and trade champions, build contacts and meet potential customers.

During the week there will be more than 40 events taking place including country briefings, interactive seminars and workshops. 

In addition, the event will offer a platform for delegates to market their products and services to enable business matching, collaboration and one-to-one networking.

The Automotive Export Week is an ideal opportunity for businesses to expand their sector knowledge and raise their company profile with a view to boosting sales overseas.
