Helping UK-based companies succeed in an increasingly global economy
UK Trade & Investment is a British government organization that helps UK-based companies maximize their success in an increasingly globalized economy. The Calgary Trade Office provides British companies with knowledge, advice and practical support in terms of identifying and meeting Canadian oilpatch and other potential customers. There are significant gaps in the supply chain supporting the market for equipment and services in the oil sands. The UK has numerous companies that have the capacity and the expertise to address these gaps with a competitive edge in specific skills, know-how and technology. There will be the opportunity to meet some of these companies and also newer UK entrants into the Canadian marketplace – both at the UKTI booth and also at the adjoining Scottish Development International Booth 2810 – where there will also be the added attraction of whisky tasting.
