Brexit Event

Get up to speed on the discussions and understand the impact on your business.

27 June 2018, 9:30AM - 5:00PM, CET

The UK will leave the EU on 30 March 2019. With a transition period foreseen until 31 December 2020, there is no time to lose; companies must begin to prepare themselves.

Where exactly are we in the negotiations? What concretely is likely to happen during the transition phase? And, most important, how is Brexit going to impact my business? These are all questions we will be addressing in this interactive session, which will allow participants to partake in a series of workshops around key topics such as Customs and VAT, People and Immigration.

With so many unknown factors around the final outcome of the Brexit debate this timely event will be the perfect opportunity to get up to speed on the discussions and to understand the potential impact on your business.
