Following the success of multiple BBBA delegations to England, we are aiming to promote Bulgarian business and create partnership opportunities in Scotland.

Due to the unforeseen circumstances of the COVID-19 situation, we are changing the format of this roadshow, bringing it online. In this challenging times, we believe that with this format of the roadshow even more companies will be able to take advantage of the amazing business opportunity.
