The AEA's mission is to represent the best interests of the UK land and outdoor power equipment members in a globally changing competitive environment.

Download our current International Trade Strategy below.

The AEA is a Challenge Partner with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI).  We promote UKTI services to UK based businesses that are considering doing business overseas or planning to expand their international business.  In addition to the management of Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) supported groups this includes the promotion of Business Opportunities; Open to Export; webinars; capacity building services; dissemination of other export information and opportunities.

What we can do for you:
Are you considering your first steps in exporting or maybe have some export experience?  If so the AEA can help you with advice, export services and assist with obtaining funding through UKTI and through the regions.  We provide members with regular vital export statistics and country data and are continually looking at new potential markets for UK exporters.  Due to the wide diversity of the products that we represent, not every overseas trade show or market is relevant to all companies.  If there is a specific market/event that you feel we should be looking at please contact us for further information.  We are here to help you with your overseas exporting plans.

Under the current UKTI TAP programme (Tradeshow Access Programme) the AEA has been successful in obtaining grant funding for the following events:-

Golf Industry Show, Orlando, February 2017
