SCOTTISH EXPORT AWARDS 2018 SPONSORED BY HSBC IN ASSOCIATION WITH SCOTTISH ENTERPRISE & HIGHLANDS AND ISLANDS ENTERPRISE

BQ is delighted to announce the fifth annual Scottish Export Awards and International Trade Campaign, sponsored by HSBC in association with Scottish Enterprise & Highlands and Islands Enterprise, celebrating the entrepreneurial exporting achievements of businesses across Scotland.

Nominations now open until 19th January 2018

The Scottish Export Awards and International Trade Campaign, sponsored by HSBC in association with Scottish Enterprise & Highlands and Islands Enterprise, brings together businesses from across Scotland to recognise and celebrate their entrepreneurial exporting achievements as well as encourage others to increase their export potential.

Exporting and international trade remain central to the Scottish government’s economic growth agenda and this campaign and export awards are about recognising those entrepreneurial, wealth creating companies that are selling their products, services and expertise in scores of overseas markets. It is vital that we appreciate and recognise those exporters who have made the transition from great local companies to potentially world class exporting businesses based in Scotland.

Exporting continues to present an opportunity for Scotland to bring immediate and sustainable growth to its economy and with this in mind we need to encourage more SMEs across the country to consider exporting as a realistic opportunity for growth.

The Scottish Export Awards and 12 month International Trade Campaign, sponsored by HSBC in association with Scottish Enterprise & Highlands and Islands Enterprise, consists of an awards evening scheduled to be held on 22nd March 2018 at the Glasgow Hilton. This event will be the highlight of an initial six month international trade campaign that will see BQ promote the potential of exporting across its entire audience in Scotland, in print, online and across social media.

The event will consist of a high profile dinner with awards presentations. A range of keynote speakers and other partners will also feature as part of the event.
