In an increasingly international marketplace and against a continued backdrop of economic austerity, how can exporting help Scottish businesses to grow? That’s the question being addressed at a free exporting workshop entitled Wise Up To Exporting, which is taking place at Murrayfield Stadium on Tuesday 26th November.
Aimed at helping businesses take their first steps towards expanding into overseas markets, the workshop will provide valuable advice and guidance on issues including the legal and financial implications of exporting, as well as providing tips on how to secure funding to help get started.
Organised by the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) with the support of Scottish Enterprise, the workshop begins at 2:30, immediately following the popular security event entitled Scotland: Secure for Business, which takes place at 11:00am. Both events are free to attend, making it possible for those interested in both security and exporting to attend for a full day. Alternatively, delegates are welcome to attend the exporting workshop only.
Daren Wood, Manager of Membership and Export Services at the BSIA, comments: “Research from within the security industry has revealed that exporting has become more important to businesses since the recession. The advice and guidance that we have produced for our own industry is very much relevant to all business sectors, and we aim to share that with Scottish businesses at what promises to be an informative and valuable workshop.”
With speakers including legal and financial experts, the event will inform and educate delegates on the fundamental considerations to be made before making the move into overseas markets, and aims to provide business owners with the knowledge and confidence to expand their business in challenging times.
The event is free to attend, and those wishing to come along can register online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ScotEXWS. For companies wishing to promote their products and services, exhibition space is available at the Scotland: Secure for Business event and can be booked by completing a booking form, which can be downloaded here: http://www.bsia.co.uk/web_images/forms/ssb-2013-exhib-bf.pdf
