Unfortunately, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone our virtual Showcasing Scotland Regional - North East and Highlands & Islands event due to take place on Tuesday 2nd November.
Our goal is always to ensure as many food and drink businesses in Scotland have access to events like this. Rescheduling it to Spring 2022 means we hope it can return as a live, in-person event. That is the model that has worked well before and will help more producers and buyers take advantage of the opportunities on offer at this regional showcasing event.
We have contacted all producers and buyers who have applied for the event to inform them of the next steps. If you have any further questions in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact your business development manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep an eye on our channels for further updates in the coming months and all the detail of our other, ongoing market development activity can be found here.

Do you have a new date for the regional showcasing event?
We are currently looking at new dates for Spring 2022 for this event and will update on this in due course.
How did you reach the decision to cancel the event?
It was a difficult decision, however we really felt that to do this event properly and maximise the opportunities for both buyers and suppliers it needed to be an in-person/live event.
Will you reopen for applications?
Once we’ve confirmed dates, we will reopen applications for next year’s event(s).
Will I have to apply again if I’ve already applied?
No, we will keep all applications on file and get in touch with those who have applied once a new date is confirmed to make sure you are still interested in the event.
Will there be other regional showcasing events next year?
We are currently reviewing the schedule of events for next year and will be consulting partners as part of this review.
