Business leaders from creative industries including advertising, television and film, publishing, fashion, gaming and immersive technology attended an event hosted by the Department of International Trade (DIT), which has launched a campaign to raise the profile of UK creative exporters, under the banner "Made in the UK, Sold to the World".
Announcing a package of support for music exporters and the commissioning of new research for the museums sector, Minister for Exports Mike Freer said:
"The UK’s creative industries are a force to be reckoned with. We create, write, produce and code amazing products, and sell them to the world. The nation can be proud of our creative industries exporters, and the jobs they create in our economy.
"Along with the trade deals we’re striking, we are committed to helping our creative businesses fulfil their potential on the world stage, fuelling sustainable growth for British businesses and creating new jobs in every region and nation of the UK."
The UK Advertising Exports Group (UKAEG) was among the attending organisations, and promoted its members, Nexus and Qumin, at the event.
