Last Autumn, the Department for International Trade (DIT) published the refreshed Export Strategy with an action-led 12-point plan to help exporters, including those in the creative industries to thrive in the global market. This includes initiatives such as the Export Support Service (ESS), the UK Export Academy, UK Export Finance, the pilot UK Tradeshow programme, and International Trade Advisers.

In addition, the Department works closely with business to deliver trade missions and UK enhanced presence at major creative sector events such as South by Southwest in Austin, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, the Saudi Entertainment and Amusement Expo, the IAAPA Expos in Europe and USA, and LeisurUP by MAPIC.
