Unrivalled opportunity to meet key buyers from around the world

Showcasing Scotland provides Scottish Companies with expert support to prepare them ahead of face to face meetings with UK and international buyers.

Producers will have the opportunity to meet buyers from Scotland, Rest of UK, USA, Canada, France, Germany, Nordics, Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Dubai and Bahrain), China and Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Thailand.

Supplier Development Programme

A workshop-based development programme will be offered to Scottish companies prior to the event to help them prepare for the Meet the Buyer. The programme will ensure that trade-ready companies are fully equipped to maximise the opportunity and have a greater chance of securing business. With both a domestic and international element, it will cover all key markets.  It is envisaged that all companies will participate in the development programme, albeit some may have a greater focus on one or more markets.

The development programme will be structured as follows:

  • Workshops
  • Webinars
  • One-to-one support

Workshops

Delegates will benefit from a 1 day workshop, taking place in six locations across Scotland. Each session will cover global trends, understanding consumers, identifying market opportunities, pitching, plus additional support available.

  • 11th July - Glasgow

  • 18th July - Oban

Webinars

A series of 12-14 live Market Briefings will be available, focused on each of the priority markets, and supported by our country specialists.  Webinars will cover market overview, opportunities and challenges, routes to market, business culture and buyer information.

Market Briefings will take place during August and the dates will be advised at the start of the programme.

One-to-One Support

Personalised one-to-one support will be available to support delegates following the workshops and market briefings, and help prepare tailored presentations for the Meet the Buyer.

I would like to add that in all my years of selling the 48 hours I spent at Gleneagles were not only the most productive but the most enjoyable too. A great combination and a great reflection for Scotland. Well done to everyone concerned.
