Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has called upon businesses in Banff & Buchan to join BusinessClub Scotland, a unique collaboration of all Scotland’s major business organisations. With funding from the Scottish Government, BusinessClub Scotland will ensure that firms across Scotland capitalise on the business opportunities from the Year of Homecoming, the 2014 Commonwealth Games and other major events in Scotland. The new initiative will be led by the Scottish Council for Development and Industry but carries the support of all of the major business organisations in Scotland.

The key objectives of BusinessClub Scotland are to:
-Improve business competitiveness
-Build supply chain networks
-Facilitate procurement around events
-Extend the reach of existing networks
-Provide direct business engagement and targeted networking at events to win business
-Develop expertise in event management and delivery

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“BusinessClub Scotland offers businesses in Banff & Buchan a real opportunity to compete for lucrative contracts connected to the major events we see across Scotland every year.

“Glasgow 2014 alone will be spending up to £200m on goods and services in the run up to the Games, and there is no reason why businesses in Banff & Buchan cannot successfully win contracts for some of that money.

“There are great opportunities for businesses to supply services to events, to showcase their products and to make national and international contacts through targeted networking opportunities. That is why I hope businesses in Banff & Buchan will be quick to sign up and see real benefits from membership in this scheme”.
