Cambridge, UK Wednesday April 7 2014

Deyton Bell, the economic, commercial and business development specialists, today announced that a delegation of representatives from at least 11 US States will attend the 2014 Transatlantic Business Forum, which will take place in Cambridge, UK on Tuesday June 24 2014.

Building on the overwhelming success of last two Transatlantic Business Forums, this Deyton Bell initiative aims to refocus attention on the huge US market, to support businesses interested in expanding US activities or establishing a US base, and to stimulate successful transatlantic commercial activity. The Forum is the Region’s premier specialist event focussed on transatlantic commercial issues, and it will again highlight best practice case studies, will provide expert advice, opinion and information on key issues encountered when exploring and growing transatlantic business and will provide opportunities for delegates to meet experts from both sides of the Atlantic.

Announcing these further details, Deyton Bell Managing Director Chris Parkhouse said: “I am delighted to announce that 11 US States will be represented on June 24 and it gives me great pleasure to highlight the help and support we have received from the Council of American States in Europe (CASE). Deyton Bell is hosting the Transatlantic Business Forum in association with CASE which represents the interests of U.S. States that maintain full time offices throughout Europe. CASE is considered as the official US State led organization in Europe that provides information, advice and support to businesses who seek to identify potential partners or opportunities with the US or who seek to establish or expand their operations in the United States.”

Parkhouse continued “CASE acts as a business intelligence clearing house, and its members are the official European offices of individual U.S. State governments. Representatives from States including Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia will be attending on June 24. The 2014 Transatlantic Business Forum will feature more States than ever before – it really has become an event not to be missed by those involved in Transatlantic Business issues.”

Additional participants will include expert contributors from US Government and from the private sector on key issues such as law, tax, finance, banking, culture, logistics, marketing and sales, while case study examples of best practice will also be offered. The event is being supported by leading business groups in the US and UK.

Commenting further Deyton Bell Managing Director Chris Parkhousesaid “The US has the largest and most powerful economy in the world and is the leading single market for nearly every significant business sector. The US and the UK share the world’s largest direct investment partnership, with both countries being the largest investor in the other and the US remains Britain’s largest single export market. The UK and US have always enjoyed a “special commercial relationship” but in recent times these familiar markets have often been ignored in favour of newly emerging opportunities elsewhere. The Forum will provide introductions to commercially useful contacts, will highlight support available on both sides of the Atlantic, will showcase best practice by exploring case study examples, will offer breakout seminars, will offer one2one meetings with speakers/supporters and will offer opportunities to network and develop business. Further details on the agenda will be available soon. Please visit Transatlantic Business Forum or contact us via  to find out more or to book a seat at the 2014 Forum.”
