THE eyes of the business world fell on St Helens Langtree Park when a seminar was held helping businesses tap into the Japanese and Korean markets.

It was one of the events organised as part of Liverpool’s International Festival of Business and saw a welcoming speech delivered by club chairman Eamonn McManus.

The focus was on companies from around the UK who were seeking to add an international dimension to the business for the first time.

Firms already operating in Asia Pacific markets and looking for new opportunities were also given advice.
