The National Marine Manufacturers Association said the webinar will take place at 11 a.m. ET.

The NMMA said the webinar will provide U.S. companies that do business in the United Kingdom or are considering future business there with a discussion about the effects of Brexit on their international business and U.S. trade policy initiatives with Europe.

The scheduled speakers are John Simmons, minister counselor for commercial affairs for U.S. Commercial Service UK, London; Jeffries Briginshaw, CEO of BritishAmerican Business, the U.S.-UK trans-Atlantic business network, London; and Skip Jones, executive director for Europe and Eurasia for the International Trade Administration, Washington, D.C.
