Your global marketplace



​IFB2016 is a global marketplace for creating connections and doing deals. It brings together thousands of businesses from around the world for three weeks of events, networking and deal-making.

This year’s festival follows the inaugural International Festival for Business, which took place in 2014 and resulted in £280 million of trade and investment deals being done and many more deals and commercial relationships still in the pipeline.

IFB2016 promises to be even more successful, combining diversity with focus and business conferences and seminars with challenging and inspirational festival content.

Delivered by Liverpool Vision in partnership with UK Trade & Investment, the government department that helps UK-based companies export and international companies establish and expand in the UK, IFB2016 is the natural next step for UK businesses motivated to grow or trade overseas and for international companies that want to expand in Britain.
