Supporting British companies to

Source, assess and secure

business internationally

British Expertise International helps the full breadth of the UK-based infrastructure sector identify and win business in international markets.

We have close to 200 corporate member companies who include many of the large UK general consultants to a wide variety of other smaller consulting companies including several specialised individuals.

The organisation was founded over fifty years ago and although British Expertise International maintains very close relations with a range of government departments funding relies entirely on member company subscriptions and fee based services.

If you sell professional infrastructure services internationally, or would like to, there is likely to be a sound business case for membership of British Expertise International (BEI).

Focused Networking

Our programme of regular meetings and events, over 100 per year, focusses on the markets and sectors you operate in, or would like to.


We lead high profile missions internationally, both independently and in partnership with the Department for International Trade.

Targeted Leads

We disseminate targeted leads for potential business from all over the world across a whole spectrum of sectors and disciplines.

Market Intelligence

Approaching overseas markets can be difficult, we can provide our knowledge on the countries and regions in which you work.

Problem Solving

We can help with debt recovery, finding staff, and with problems encountered in the short listing and selection process for project work.

Engaging with Government

We will act robustly on your behalf when requested and when a pattern emerges we will act for a group in seeking a policy change.
