Flying the Fife flag at All-Energy 2016

All-Energy 2016 provided an opportunity for a delegation of Fife companies to showcase the region’s long tradition of excellence in engineering and manufacturing.

Fife Council Economic Development Team’s Market Development Programme supported 15 Fife organisations to visit Glasgow in May, as part of its delegation to the UK’s largest renewable energy event, All-Energy 2016.

The two-day conference and exhibition, held for a second consecutive year at the SECC in Glasgow, brought together a delegation of leading Fife-based companies including: Briggs Marine and Environmental Services; Burntisland Fabrications Ltd; Managed IT Experts; and Utility ROV Services.

Once again, the conference proved a fruitful opportunity for local businesses to showcase Fife’s excellence in engineering and manufacturing, whilst offering an opportunity to network and create new business contacts.

Four local food and drink companies (Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier; Newport Restaurant; St Andrews Brewing Company; and The Adamson, St Andrews) also joined the delegation. It was an opportunity to showcase the region’s offering, reinforcing Fife as the place to live, work and do business.

Initial feedback from the companies in attendance has been positive.  Fife Council’s Depute Leader and Executive Spokesperson for Economy and Planning, Councillor Lesley Laird, said:

“All-Energy offers an excellent opportunity to showcase Fife as the best place to live, work and do business, by highlighting our specific strengths and capabilities in the renewable technologies sector.

“Year on year, the scale and scope of All-Energy develops, making it increasingly important for Fife companies to attend. The opportunities, in terms of new business leads and opportunities, remain encouraging.”
