EIGHT Fife-based businesses are travelling to Aberdeen to attend the 50th SPE Offshore Europe trade show, a biennial exhibition and conference taking place at P&J Live in Aberdeen from September 5-8.
Through its trade development programme, Fife Council’s economic development team (InvestFife) is enabling these businesses to showcase their expertise and explore new opportunities in the offshore energy sector.
The businesses exhibiting as part of the InvestFife group stand include CluisTROM, TDC Parsons Peebles, PFI Sign Plus Ltd, International Testing Services Ltd, Lamond & Murray Ltd, Surface Heating System, Ductform HFE, and MRS Training and Rescue.
Neil McIntosh, CEO at Dunfermline-based CluisTROM, said, “In the past we exhibited independently at this keynote event. Having been part of the Fife stand for the last few years however, we benefited from greater delegate engagement, along with a sense of support and camaraderie from the other businesses on the stand. We are therefore delighted to be joining it again this year.
“Attending Offshore Europe is major expenditure for any SME. To have the support of a committed organisation such as InvestFife in getting Fife-based companies here – some for the very first time – is a fantastic boost at this present time.”
InvestFife’s trade development programme helps facilitate the growth and internationalisation of local businesses. By providing financial assistance, market intelligence, and networking opportunities, the aim is to empower companies to expand their reach and establish valuable connections at prominent industry events.
Pamela Stevenson, service manager of economic development at Fife Council, added, “InvestFife is committed to fostering growth and investment in the region, and we are proud to support these businesses as they contribute to the thriving offshore energy sector. Through strategic partnerships and collaborative efforts, we aim to position Fife as a hub for innovation and economic development.”
