Will the UK be leaving the EU with or without a deal on October 31st? Or will we see yet another extension of the Brexit process?

Whatever happens, Danish exporters as well as importers are getting ready for change – but what should they focus on? What preparations can be made now? What will happen to transport costs? And what will be the impact of Ireland staying in the EU, and Northern Ireland leaving along with the UK?

We reopen discussions with most of the panel from our event in Esbjerg this March and will once again hear from Marc Holland, Deputy Head of Mission at the British Embassy as well as from several both Danish and British Authorities and value chain businesses. 

By attending this event we hope everyone will be better prepared for the EU thriller of the coming months.

14:05 Individual presentation by each speaker before all speakers gather in a panel for a discussion and Q&A on implications of Brexit across the value chain
