ADIA-MIG Breakfast —
Brexit's Implications For Dental Product Manufacturers

Australian manufacturers of dental products look to overseas markets such as the United Kingdom (UK) in order to secure sales to ensure long-term commercial sustainability. It’s in this context that the UK's decision to leave the European Union (EU), colloquially known as Brexit, presents new compliance challenges for Australian business.

This breakfast briefing allows you to hear from somebody who is at the forefront of helping business and the UK Government adapt to an uncertain future.

Key Issues To Be Discussed —

What the UK dental industry thinks about Brexit and its commercial outcomes.
Current state of UK - EU negotiations to develop a new regulatory framework.
Implications for Australian businesses looking to export to the UK and Europe.

The Speaker —

Edmund Proffitt is the Chief Executive Officer of the British Dental Industry Association (BDIA) and has been taking a lead role in policy advocacy on behalf of dental product manufacturers to assist governments in the UK and EU work out how Brexit will impact upon the industry.

This event is organised under the auspices of the ADIA-MIG Manufacturers Interest Group which is a forum for Australian businesses to come together, share ideas, and develop the partnerships which allow them to tackle overseas markets with confidence.

Places are limited and tickets are $30 per person or $350 for a sponsored table of eight.
