Meet USA trade experts for a 'whistle-stop' tour of Scotland's top export destination.

 

Discover which States offer the best opportunities for your products and services. Plus, get practical tips and guidance 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.

 

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.

The day will focus on all aspects of trading with the USA including:

  • Getting started and who to contact for tailored support
  • How to research your market
  • How to identify routes to market
  • Financing your trade and getting paid
  • Legal aspects of trading in the USA
  • Protecting your intellectual property in the USA
