This is a mission with great value for money and may open up some great opportunities for your business.

The Dutch central government is aiming to ensure that 14% of all energy used in the Netherlands is sustainable by 2020 and 16% by 2023. This represents a great opportunity for Northern Powerhouse companies in a key trading market for the UK.

Delegates will receive support in advance of and after the mission from both, DIT and Netherlands British Chamber of Commerce representatives. The three-day programme will give businesses the opportunity to explore the Dutch marketplace and look at the possibilities for UK businesses in the offshore energy sector. In addition, attending the exhibition will give delegates the added bonus of meeting industry influencers at one of Europe’s leading offshore energy events.
