Preview the Online Portal

What can suppliers expect at the Meet the Buyer virtual event?

There are two short videos to help suppliers take a walkthrough and learn more about what to expect from the online portal on 8 June 2021. The first is on how to use the Meet the Buyer online portal, and the second is on how to connect with exhibitions under the Scottish Government category within the portal.

Due to cyber security requirements, there is an additional step for suppliers to take to connect with Scottish Government stand representatives during Meet the Buyer. An exhibition stand notification will state that it is not possible to connect using the live one-to-one video button. Therefore, suppliers should message stand staff representatives through the chat function to ask if they would like to participate in a video call. After a short conversation, suppliers will be given a URL link to a Teams meeting. The supplier must copy and paste the link into a new browser window to connect for a face-to-face virtual meeting with Scottish Government.

The Supplier Development Programme understands that this extra step may be burdensome; however, in this virtual world we are doing our utmost to ensure participation of buyers and decision makers whilst balancing cyber resilience.
