Registration from 9am, Start at 9.30am – 1pm with Networking Lunch to Follow.

Get your questions answered by an expert panel and hear from Scottish companies already finding success across the Atlantic who'll share their experiences and top tips. Meet USA trade experts for a 'whistle-stop' tour of Scotland's top export destination. Plus, get practical tips and guidance on legal and financial issues to help you set up, grow and develop your business.

The USA continues to be Scotland's top international trading partner with around 17.1% of all our exports entering the States, worth £5.5 billion.

The USA's size alone — four time zones across 50 states and vast cultural differences across regions — means it has to be treated as a series of regional markets, with different characteristics and business practices.

This Scottish North American Business Council event, will offer a quick, practical introduction to international trade opportunities in the USA.

On the day you'll learn more about the support available for companies like yours considering trade with America. Event programme
