Regional Consumer Event Support 2019


****For Events running between July 2019 and June 2020****

Set up by the industry, for the industry, Seafood Scotland work to increase the value of return to the Scottish seafood sector through trade marketing promotion and business development support.


Due to current funding streams within Seafood Scotland, we are unable at this point to provide direct sponsorship to consumer facing events across Scotland. A small amount of help may be made available to a limited number of events in the form of a specific support, rather than a direct monetary exchange.

These support functions range from (but not limited to) a sampling vehicle, educational pop up activity, leaflets or literature, seafood supplies or chef provisions for demonstration purposes. Due to the differing nature of the support available, the value of each contribution may vary significantly from one event to another but will be limited to £3,000 (inc. VAT).

Should your event wish to make a request for support, Seafood Scotland requires the following application response to be completed and returned in order to be considered. Where possible, information should be provided to highlight how the consumer event will support the wider trade development of both fishing and seafood related businesses within the community.

All successful applicants must agree to;

  1. Provide feedback on the activity as requested by Seafood Scotland suitable to the type of support provided
  2. Support all public relations activities to ensure activity is  as successful as possible on the run up, during and post event communication routes

Seafood Scotland will use a scoring matrix to grade each applicant and are able to change offers made should circumstances arise or new information become available altering the above application. Seafood Scotland’s decision of support is individual and final.
