LONDON A one day event which aims to showcase innovative products and technologies developed by electronics companies based in Scotland to an international audience is being organised by Scottish Enterprise and Connect Scotland.
The event will take place on March 22 at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, and will include an exhibition and networking with up to 60 of Scotland's companies working in the micro, opto and electronics sectors.
There will also be a series of workshops aimed at inspiring companies to consider new applications and markets for their existing technologies.
Neil Francis, director of Scottish Enterprise Edinburgh and Lothian, said “This event will enable Scottish companies to showcase their range of technology and products to potential new customers, investors and suppliers, while also profiling Scotland as an international centre of excellence for research, design and innovation in new and emerging technologies.”
Included in those already lined-up to exhibit are Logitech, Epson Scotland Design Centre, Photonix, VCX Software, MicroEmissive Displays, DesignLED and the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Strathclyde.
The Electronics Industry Dinner is to be held during the evening after the Electronics Showcase in the Royal Museum in Edinburgh city centre.
The event follows on from one in 2005 when 54 companies and organisations took part including BAe Systems, Nallatech, Raytheon Systems, MicroEmissive Displays, Plexus, Semefab (Scotland) and TESS – a range of large companies to university spin-outs and start-ups.
