CPI Announces Free Brexit Readiness Events

As a No Deal Brexit becomes a greater and greater possibility, businesses are increasingly asking what they can do to manage the risks to their operations that No Deal could cause.

The Confederation of Paper Industries (CPI) is pleased to announce that is has received Government support to hold two Brexit Readiness Events in advance of the 31st October Brexit deadline. The events will take place on:

  • Tuesday 22nd October from 10am to 1pm
    Stoneleigh/Warwick Room, Chesford Grange Hotel, Kenilworth, Warwickshire CV8 2LD
  • Thursday 24th October from 10am to 1pm
    Wanderers Suite, Bolton Whites Hotel, University of Bolton Stadium, Bolton, Greater Manchester BL6 6SF 

These events will focus on giving the UK’s Paper-based Industries the latest information on the preparations to take to manage the potential impacts of a No Deal Brexit. They will enable you to consider the risks of No Deal and to decide what actions to take to support the continuity of your business in the coming weeks. There will be speakers from CPI, BEIS and TLT Solicitors, as well as a panel discussion on No Deal management challenges.

These events are free, but places are limited. Please contact cpi@paper.org.uk as soon as possible to reserve a place NOW.
