Following the success of multiple BBBA delegations to the UK, we are aiming to promote Bulgarian business and create partnership opportunities in the Greater Manchester area. 

BBBA has chosen to reveal the unexplored business development potential for Bulgarian companies outside of London. Manchester has traditionally been a strong manufacturing city. Currently, it's a blooming creative and media hub, combining its glorious industrial past with modern and innovative technology, entrepreneurship, and a creative business ecosystem. 

Companies need to register initial interest on the button below by June 29. 

Companies from the following sectors are invited to participate in the delegation: 

  • Creative
  • Createch
  • Fintech
  • Manufacturing
  • Media and Advertising
  • Technology

***Please note that the event is being planned as a live visit, however, in case of bad circumstance, BBBA is ready to move it online and respectively reevaluate the costs. There will also be an option for participating virtually in selected events from the programme.
