Are you a production company that wants to start working internationally and don’t know quite where to start? Or do you have some experience working internationally and want to know more about what your next steps should be?

  • A starting point and confidence to explore international opportunities
  • Pointers on how you can access wider international support services to assess if you are export ready
  • Learn from case study examples of companies who have taken the first step to going global.
