The Alliance’s Investment Promotion workstream works with the cities to promote their multi-million-pound investment opportunities to a targeted investor audience via a single Investment Prospectus. We act as the initial point of contact for bringing investors to cities through bespoke one-to-one meetings, as well as through attending investor conferences such as MIPIM and MIPIM UK, and holding our own sectoral targeted events. By creating bespoke opportunities for cities to meet investors from the sectors they are promoting, the Alliance’s investment promotion activity has helped to bring in more than £100 million to the Scottish economy with investments across the cities.
Collaboration is at the heart of everything that we do. Working with our stakeholders, we are a conduit for bringing relevant opportunities from key public sector organisations such as Scottish Development International, Scottish Enterprise and the Department for International Trade to the attention of the cities, ensuring they are part of informing the overall strategic approach to attracting investment to Scotland.
The seven city regions have a strong story to tell, and collaboratively they are making a significant impact in a very competitive environment. The Alliance will continue to support and promote the opportunities on offer across the cities to our growing database of investors who welcome our unique one-stop-shop approach to attracting investment.
