Scotland’s Trade Fair Autumn returns to the SEC in Glasgow on September 18 and September 19, with a diverse array of around 120 exhibitors across the gift, greeting cards, homeware, stationery, jewellery, food and textiles sectors, including established names such as Barrhead Leather, Glen Appin, Pocket Mountains, Shearer Candles, Pink Pig, Ness and Urban Outline.
In The Launch Gallery, companies such as Christine Allan Art, Fiona Matheson Studio, Joy Nevada, Christine Gilbert Art and Surya Luna Naturals will be exhibiting for the first time at the Autumn edition of Scotland’s Trade Fair. And the Speciality Food area is once again in high demand, featuring companies such as Och Vegan, Cold Town Beer and Scotia Spice Foods.
“Nothing quite beats meeting suppliers and negotiating orders that can only be done face-to-face at trade shows, especially as many of our exhibitors will only be at this Show”Show director Mark Saunders
Show director Mark Saunders said: “Nothing quite beats meeting suppliers and negotiating orders that can only be done face-to-face at trade shows, especially as many of our exhibitors will only be at this Show. However, our Autumn Show is more than just buying. It gives retailers the chance to find out what’s on-trend in the marketplace and discover new exhibitors. It also offers the opportunity to network and catch up with suppliers – and it’s a welcome day out after what we hope will be a busy summer season.”
He added: “With many Brits opting to holiday at home now, plus many foreign visitors returning to Scotland, shops are hoping to have good summer and will be ready to reorder in September.”
Scotland’s Trade Fair Spring returns to its normal timing in January and will be held at the SEC in Glasgow from January 22 to January 24, 2023.
