Smart Cities – What are the Export Opportunities for Scottish Businesses

What is a ‘Smart City’? Countries around the world are updating their cities to be digitally interconnected whether it be environmental systems in buildings to making transport flow readily. The back drop for all developments is the desire to reduce carbon and be energy efficient.


This workshop in conjunction with BE-ST, Scottish Development International and the Department for Business & Trade will look at the global opportunities for Scottish businesses to export and the support that is available to assist them.


The workshop will be of interest to businesses who manufacture or provide services who either want to create an export strategy or expand their current one. If you operate in:

  • Digitalisation
  • Energy efficient lighting, environment controls
  • Specialist systems for large buildings such as airports
  • Cyber protection of integrated systems
  • Construction of the future
  • Clean Tech
  • Sensors
  • And much more which could be in a smart building or city
