Doing Business in the USA, SNABC (Virtual Seminar)

18 November 2021

Could exporting to the US be good for your business?

The USA continues to be Scotland’s top international trading partner with around 17.1% of allsnabc exports entering the United States, worth £5.5 billion. The USA’s size alone, covering 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. Come meet USA trade experts for a virtual ‘whistle-stop’ tour of Scotland’s top export destination. As we steer out of a COVID-19 world, the Scottish North American Business Council (SNABC) is offering the opportunity for advice on your products and services. You will also gain practical tips and guidance which will help you to set up, grow and develop your business from those who have made that journey and continue to do so.

This SNABC event, delivered with partners including, Dentons, Scottish Enterprise and US Consulate Edinburgh and USTAXFS will offer a quick, practical introduction to international trade opportunities in the USA. Significant opportunities exist for Scottish firms across a range of key sectors, spanning: Life sciences, Electronics, Technology, Financial Services, Food and Drink.

Discover how your business can take advantage of opportunities, and what support is available, to help you with a mix of knowledgeable advice from an expert panel, including Nora Rothrock, and Q&As.
