The Gleneagles hotel in Scotland is to host the second Showcasing Scotland event in October this year. The show exists as a platform for Scottish food and drink producers and buyers.
In association with Scotland Food & Drink, the event will take place from 6-9 October, and give buyers the chance to meet a range of producers from across the country, allowing companies to grow sales within the UK and international markets.
Producers will come from across a wide range of sectors, including dairy, red meat, drinks, bakery, premium grocery, seafood and salmon, with buyers from a range of areas including speciality retailers, major supermarket chains, fine-foods distributors, convenience and online, contract caterers, wholesalers and travel and tourism operators.
There will also be a full programme of seminars, a drinks reception and a gala dinner, to encourage further networking.
Last year's inaugural event was estimated to have attracted around 100 buyers and allowed participating companies to forecast £20m worth of additional sales. A number of buyers also met producers who went on to work together at high-profile events such as the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Ryder Cup.
James Withers, chief executive of Scotland Food & Drink, said: "Showcasing Scotland is a unique event. With provenance becoming of increasing importance to consumers, I'd encourage buyers to register for the opportunity to meet a wide range of relevant Scottish food and drink producers as well as learning more about what our industry has to offer."
You can register as a buyer on the Showcasing Scotland website.
