Open to Export hosted three Export Action Plan competitions this spring across both the food & drink and creative & tech sectors and for the East of England region.
Each winner up won almost £7000 worth of prizes including £3000 cash, a new website build and consultancy from Yell, two training courses from the Institute of Export. They also won, along with the other finalists, a £300 website translation voucher from SDL Managed Translation and a year’s small business membership at the Institute of Export.
We were delighted with each of the finals and are delighted to announce three brilliant winners.
