How we can help

Year-round we lead Scottish company delegations to major trade shows worldwide. Delegates have the option to co-exhibit with like-minded Scottish companies on a Scotland pavilion or stand hosted by Scottish Development International. 

We often team up with partners, such as the UK Department for International Trade (DIT), allowing you to tap into extended networks and expertise, when you need it, whichever industry your in.
