New Website for new UK Trade & Investment mission
UK Trade & Investment, the UK Government's lead organisation for supporting companies wishing to trade internationally, helps companies achieve their international business potential by developing export capabilities and providing expert advice, reliable data, and professional research.
UK Trade & Investment organises a number of Inward Missions each year, bringing those who are in a key position to influence the purchase goods and services to visit the UK to see for themselves what is available from UK industry. Prior to our solution, the organisation for these missions and the arrangement of face-to-face meetings was predominantly a manually process which was both labour intensive and challenging.
Itineris had developed a solution for TechnologyWorld05, an international partnering event that saw hundreds of leading edge technology companies come together to form new business relationships with international partners. The event was organised by UK Trade & Investment who liked the solution so much they asked Itineris to further develop the solution to manage all their inward mission activities.
The result is a sophisticated, robust and highly usable web-event management solution that provides up-to-date information on inward mission activities; allowing UK and overseas companies to browse profiles and book meetings with each across multiple days and venues. Each company has their own 'My Missions' area where they can personally manage their participation. The whole process is co-ordinated using a tailored version of our i.meet technology which allows administrator to manage and monitor all event activities across multiple missions.
