A warm welcome from our team and our 100+ corporate and institutional members to British Expertise International (BEI).
We are a unique business development organisation dedicated to supporting our members and stakeholders explore, assess and win business opportunities globally in all forms of infrastructure, capacity building and international development, with a particular focus on the dynamic and growing markets of Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and South East Europe.
Our members range from some of the UK’s largest companies, to some of the smallest. They work across a range of sectors from infrastructure to education, health and international development, but all share a common goal of exporting the best of UK expertise in professional services.
BEI works closely with the UK and foreign governments to help our members understand international markets and opportunities they present through a wide range of activities. These include networking events, sector-focused forums, bespoke international market intelligence, and demand-based trade missions. BEI has successfully delivered this unique focus, working both through our networks and alongside the UK government and other stakeholders, for over 50 years.
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 and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
We disseminate targeted leads for potential business from all over the world across a whole spectrum of sectors and disciplines.
Approaching overseas markets can be difficult. We can provide our knowledge on the countries and regions in which you work.
We help our members think through challenges and possible solutions.
Engaging with Government
We actively engage with government on issues of member interest, organising and convening activities as appropriate.
Say hello to our team
We are here to support our members. We look forward to meeting you and getting to know your business needs.
