An annual conference to boost trade and share knowledge among the Scottish diaspora will take place during the COP26 summit to highlight opportunities for business.
Scottish Business Network (SBN) said its fifth Scottish International Week (SIW21) will tap into the global audience and interest that will be created around the climate event in Glasgow in November.
SBN chairman Russell Dalgleish announced that the week-long SIW21 will be much larger than in previous years and will once again be in-person and virtual. Last year’s event attracted 10,000 registrations.
“The popularity of SIW last year took us all by surprise and it’s quite clear there is huge international interest in Scotland,” he said.
