Edinburgh exporting workshop

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, Wise Up To Exporting, at Murrayfield Stadium on Tuesday, November 26.

Aimed at helping businesses take their first steps towards expanding into overseas markets, the workshop will provide guidance on issues including the legal and financial implications of exporting, as well as tips on how to find 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, after the security exhibition Scotland: Secure for Business, which runs from 11am. Both events are free, making it possible for those interested in both security and exporting to attend for a full day. Or, delegates are welcome to attend the exporting workshop only.

Daren Wood, Manager of Membership and Export Services at the BSIA, says: “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 figures, the event will inform delegates on the considerations before a move into overseas markets.

The event is free, and those wishing to attend can register online at

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:
