GREAT Week UAE provided a first rate experience for Marshall Arts

Marshall Arts design and manufacture contemporary wall art, framed pictures and mirrors to complement current interior trends. Already a successful exporter the company applied to join the UK Trade & Investment GREAT Week UAE to “see for ourselves the potential in UAE” and conceive a “credible plan for doing business in the UAE.”

Paul Marshall, Managing Director, attended the mission and stated “there is real affinity with the UK, we do have something to offer the UAE, and they want our products as they are. The support from UKTI could not have been better as they helped in every way to point us in the right direction.”

Following participation Paul has “a clear plan for supplying the UAE, and several credible leads” he states that the positive experiences “encouraged us to do more business out there, and attend other UKTI events.”

Overall Paul described his experience was “first rate” thankful to UKTI, the Embassy and the trade minister who “really gave the trip some credibility.” He also commented that the programme and activities were “well organised and catered for all; and as an introduction to supplying the UAE, the mission could not have been bettered.”
