The Midlands Engine Cyber initiative will be hosting a return trade delegation to Baltimore, Maryland, to exhibit at the Cyber Maryland Conference in October and businesses are being invited join the delegation.

Over the last year Midlands Engine Cyber have successfully delivered an outward mission to Maryland, hosted an inward delegation and signed the Memorandum of Understanding between the two regions. The trade mission, which takes place between the 9-13 October 2017, is designed to further showcase and sell the regions’ cyber innovation and technological capabilities, as well as encourage new businesses to benefit from the increasing opportunities of this high-growth market  by developing UK/US relationships.

The Midlands based delegates will take part in the prestigious CyberMaryland Conference 2017, with Maryland being recognised as a cyber-security leader both nationally and internationally with the world’s largest concentrations of cyber security companies, educational institutions and government agencies with a workforce of over 77,000 cyber security professionals.

The headquarters of the US National Security Agency is at Fort Meade and some of the world’s largest IT and cyber security firms are located in Maryland. In addition, there are five universities which are designated centres of excellence in cyber education,  a large research community leading a strong development environment for incubators and accelerators

Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the Marches LEP, in partnership with Department for International Trade and Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce, are developing a programme over the next three years to create sustainability and add both trade and inward investment value for the region.

If you would like to join the trade mission this October please contact linda.smith@wlep.co.uk and submit your application before the 1 September 2017 deadline
