Walpole supports its members internationally in a number of ways. Our trade missions leverage our links with the GREAT Campaign, the Department of Business & Trade (DBT), media partners and local experts to promote British luxury and Walpole brands in key markets, including the US, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.
The UK luxury sector's total exports are £56bn, up 45% in 5 years
Walpole hosts member discussions with ministers, trade commissioners and ambassadors, to ensure that Governments understand the opportunities and challenges of the sector, and members understand the landscape in export markets.
Through our Presidency of ECCIA, the European Creative and Cultural Industries Alliance, Walpole has a voice in the EU, one of our largest export markets.

Members also receive access to Walpole’s research and insight programme, and our range of corporate partners which have expertise in operating in a range of global markets.

If you would like to get involved in our work on any of these issues, please get in touch with our Policy Team.
