We do have dedicated private meeting rooms for exhibitor only use.

The financial administration for this event will be managed by Scottish Development International.  Please note that the following non-negotiable rules and deadlines will apply to all companies wishing to exhibit on the Scottish Pavilion:

  • Deadline for all applications and receipt of signed contracts will be Friday 17th October 2014. Enclosed is a contract which you must complete and return to SDI by this date.
  •  Following receipt of your signed contract, an invoice for a deposit of 40% of space and construction costs will be issued to you by SDI.  This amount is payable to SDI within 30 days (the contract is available here).
  • The remaining balance of 60% will be due for payment in January 2015.
  • Space will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
  • SDI will try wherever possible to accommodate placing requests from Scottish companies but reserve the right place exhibitors on the Scottish pavilion to ensure we maximise our space allocation on the pavilion.

It is critical that you return your completed contract by the 17th October 2014 deadline as we will not be holding any reserved additional space due to the penalties applicable for handing back unallocated space.  Please comply within the above deadline to avoid any disappointment.

Please note that for health and safety reasons it is SDI’s policy that only the SDI appointed stand contractor will be permitted to carry out build work on the Scottish Pavilion.  Any company wishing to discuss this further must contact Carmel Nesbitt on 0141 228 2501.

We sincerely hope you will join the Scottish delegation at this key international seafood trade show and very much look forward to working with you.
