Brexit and Beyond

Two hunded days before Brexit actually means Brexit we still know surprisingly little about the future trading relationship between the UK and the EU. The only things we know for certain is that we are bound for change, need to hope for the best, prepare for the worst and not lose sight of life (and business) beyond Brexit. For navigation in still troubled waters, little is more important than good advice, up-to-date information and, most of all, an opportunity to compare notes and exchange views with peers.

With this in mind and encouraged by the success of last year’s sold-out pilot event, the Austrian Trade Commission in London invites you to the Second Annual Conference for Executives of Austrian Subsidiaries.

  • After opening remarks by Austria’s new Ambassador Michael Zimmermann and Trade Commissioner Christian Kesberg, the first keynote will be delivered by Sir John Curtice (one of Britain’s most well-known political analysts and Professor at the University of Strathclyde)
  • The keynote will be followed by an introductory session, in which each company representative briefly talks about his business. 
  • After a networking lunch, there will be a second keynote by Andrew Goodwin, Lead UK Economist at Oxford Economics, examining the state of the UK economy and its future prospects. 
  • Experts from Flatgate LLP and Blick Rothenberg will deliver mini-briefings on the UK’s post Brexit immigration and customs environments
  • Finally, the DIT’s Chief Investment Officer Michael Charlton will speak about Britain’s recently launched long-term Industrial Strategy
  • The conference will conclude with a dinner reception at the Ambassador’s Residence for participants and their guests. [pdf, 548.1kb]
