An Aberdeen-based incident investigation specialist is setting its sights on China as it prepares to depart on a trade mission supported by Scottish Development International (SDI).
Matrix Risk Control (Matrix) provides training and support services to organisations around the globe to help them manage many major forms of operational risk. The company was formed by senior police investigators in 2009 and conducts independent incident investigations and training courses worldwide.
The SDI trade mission takes place from 19-24 March 2017. It incorporates a series of meetings with organisations based in Beijing and Shenzen, as well as attendance at the China International Petroleum and Petrochemical Exhibition (CIPPE). Matrix will form part of a group of 14 Scottish companies that will be hosted on the Scotland pavilion at the exhibition, which is held in Beijing from 20-22 March.
CIPPE is one of the largest petroleum exhibitions in the world and is expected to attract around 2,000 exhibitors from 65 nations and up to 80,000 visitors. As a booth holder on the Scottish pavilion, Matrix will benefit from up to 12 pre-arranged meetings with local industry representatives throughout the course of the event.
Mhorvan Sherret, commercial director, Matrix Risk Control said: “This trade mission to China provides us with a series of opportunities to meet with key organisations, through organised workshops, matchmaking meetings and roundtable sessions.
“The itinerary has been planned to make maximum use of our time here – and the warm introductions are a welcome bonus.
“Matrix is currently developing new online training provision, which will be marketed to a global audience. These e-learning modules will ultimately be translated into Mandarin and we hope to use our visit to promote this development and secure early interest.”
