Trade Development

About our Programmes

At InvestFife, we operate two programmes that can help support you in business.

You can grow and develop your business by increasing your opportunities to connect and reach out within Fife and beyond. 

Our Trade Development Programme exists to help you participate or visit trade shows and exhibitions.

Our Supplier Development Programme will help you win work and grow your business. From training workshops to support around accessing tender opportunities, there is ample opportunity to grow your business through the programme.

Trade Development Programme

The Economic Development team has developed the Trade Development Programme within Fife Council to help businesses participate or visit exhibitions. The programme represents a wide range of industry sectors.

Funding opportunities are available to those businesses that meet the criteria for up to 100% of eligible costs.  Funding is available for up to £2000.

 

Benefits of Participating in a Group Stand

Through the Trade Development Programme, our team organise group stands at major national and international events. Together with other Fife-based Companies, you will receive a range of support services. This can range from advice and information to customised training.

Some benefits of participating in exhibitions together include the following:

  • Fife Council will project manage your attendance, therefore leaving you to focus on your immediate business.
  • You can benefit from workshops that focus on everything from pre-event planning and to post show-evaluation.
  • Finally, you will receive both local and national PR support for attending.

 

International Exhibitions

If you are looking to expand your company internationally, exhibitions could be the perfect opportunity to secure your next big contract. Along with other agencies and partners, we will work closely with you to provide advice and support that will help you succeed in the global marketplace.

If there is an exhibition or a tradeshow that you are keen to explore or require further information on what support is available, contact fifemeansbusiness@fife.gov.uk.

 

Help to Increase Your Sales and Exports

Trading out with Scotland and overseas can open up lots of opportunities for your business.

You may be starting your business journey or expanding into new geographic areas. Equally, you might also be exporting already and wish to improve your current processes.  Whatever matters most to you, you can trust that our Trade team can advise and guide you in this journey.

The Fife Trade Partnership, coordinated by Business Gateway Fife, can signpost you to all the available support. Download the Partnership's Your Guide to Accessing New Markets produced by Fife Council's Economic Development Team.

  • Assisting SME’s in accessing tender opportunities.
