Scottish Enterprise Breakfast

Back to full timetable

Growing subsea opportunities for Scottish companies

The subsea engineering sector continues to be one of Scotland’s true global success stories. Although predominantly driven by oil and gas activity, such skills and know-how will have increasing applications across a range of sectors and the opportunities for future expansion are considerable. Scottish Enterprise has put increased focus on supporting the subsea engineering sector in recent years and we published our action plan in 2017.

To help kick off Subsea Expo, this business breakfast event will provide an opportunity to hear about some of the recent support Scottish Enterprise has provided to the industry and what we have planned for the future. In addition there will be some guest company speakers covering topics and providing insight on the internationalisation agenda including our developing relationship with markets like Japan and Norway, and the importance and opportunities that diversification provides. There will also be a chance to ask questions and find out how Scottish Enterprise can help your organisation to take advantage of future growth opportunities.

So please register and, ahead of the start of Subsea Expo itself, come and find out about – and be a part of – this continuing Scottish success story.
