Run in conjunction with Insider Media Ltd, the event is aimed at Scottish businesses wanting to either start or expand their exporting journey. Those attending in-person and online will receive free advice and support to help their business expand overseas.

Minister for Exports Lord Malcolm Offord said: “From our innovative financial technology and life sciences industries to our famous food and drink sector, Scottish businesses have a lot to offer.

“While many of them have started selling abroad, there are many more opportunities out there for Scottish companies to expand their sales internationally and that’s what this event is all about.

“The UK Government wants to see companies here grasp the opportunities that exist around the globe to sell their goods and services, and I’m looking forward to speaking to them about the advice and support that’s on offer to help them do this.

Lord Offord will be speaking at the event, along with representatives from the Department for Business & Trade’s Export Academy, UK Export Finance, Scottish Chambers of Commerce, Allianz and the Scottish Government.

Businesses registering for the event will also be able to hear first hand from Scottish companies already successfully exporting, with speakers from Nairn's Oatcakes, Quorum Cyber and Bute Fabrics taking part.

The sessions on the day will cover advice for Scottish companies starting out on their export journey, the finance and support available to help them do this, and how the UK Government is working to open new markets and tackle trade barriers that they might face.
