The Vulcan bomber was recognised across the globe for soaring across the skies during the Cold War era.

And now business leaders are being invited to attend a seminar under the shadow of its wings which aims to show how businesses can span the globe by increasing export sales.

The breakfast seminar Not Difficult, Just Different: 5 Steps to Exporting is being staged at Hangar 3 at Doncaster’s Robin Hood Airport, home of the Vulcan, on November 13.

It is being held as part of the wider UK Trade and Investment Export Week from November 9 to 13 to help businesses to crack the overseas market.

Three of the borough’s top exporters are set to attend to offer international trade tips. Seminars will be delivered by representatives from construction business Pacy Wheatley, foundry Noel Village and Thorne-based food manufacturer World Feeds.

Guests will also get the chance to tour the Vulcan exhibit, which made its last flight in October.

Mark Robson, regional director of UKTI Yorkshire and Humber, said: “Exports create growth, fuel innovation and make your business more competitive and resilient. There is a world of opportunity out there and we must do everything we can to help every business find success on foreign shores.

“By getting three of Doncaster’s top exporters to share their experiences and tips, we are confident we can inspire another generation of international businesses.”

William Beckett, chair of the Sheffield City Region Export Partnership, added: “Doncaster has some incredible success stories and by sharing these with neighbouring businesses, we hope to make the local economy stronger.”

The event starts at 8am. For more information visit
