Due to Scottish Government’s ongoing advice on home working and avoiding large indoor gatherings, MaaS Scotland has taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Annual Conference and Dinner 2021 which was planned to take place on 16th September 2021.
After its successful addition to the 2019 and 2020 conferences, MaaS Scotland is once again inviting qualifying members to participate in our SME Showcase. This showcase will allow participating companies and organisations to pitch their products, services and expertise to attendees from across the MaaS supply chain.
The showcase is scheduled to run during our late morning session 1130-1300. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To be eligible to participate, your company/organisation must be:
A member of the MaaS Scotland network
Defined as an SME under UK guidelines e. less than 250 employees and less than £25M turnover
There is no cost to participating in the showcase but you will need to register for the conference itself (£50 for MaaS Scotland members). If you are interested in participating please contact email@example.com.
