Date: 21st - 23rd January 2018
Location: SECC, Glasgow

Scotland’s Trade Fair Spring takes place over 3 days from 21-23 January 2018 at Glasgow’s SECC. Over 500 companies exhibit thousands of products in Clothing, Textiles, Jewellery, Fashion Accessories, Clan Products, Beauty & Bath Products, Stationery, Giftware, Gift Food and Speciality Fine Food.

Around 5000 trade buyers from department stores, multiples, mail-order, online, tourist attractions and independent retail outlets will attend the show.

The show incorporates the following 3 Specialist Areas:

Showcase Scotland

Showcase Scotland runs through the spine of the show covering all product sectors and incorporates approximately 250 of the very best Scottish companies and creates a focus for UK and overseas buyers of both new and established Scottish brands.

The Showcase has been designed to link with the existing product aisles. Buyers can therefore walk the show and know exactly where the companies in the different product sectors will be.

The area boasts some of the most internationally recognised Scottish brand names including:

Launch Gallery

The Launch Gallery was established in 2009 as a platform for young start up and emerging companies and comprises approximately 30 stands located together in the heart of the show.

The aim of the Launch Gallery is to provide new design-led companies with strong ideas with a suitable platform to present their products to the market. In addition it provides retailers with an easy and simple way of discovering who the stars of the future might be. The Gallery uses a different stand fitting system to stand out from the rest of the show.

Companies chosen to exhibit in the Launch Gallery must have innovative design-led products with strong commercial appeal.

The Gallery is subsidised by the show to lower the barriers to entry for young companies and create an affordable sales and marketing opportunity for them.

Scotland’s Speciality Food Show

Scotland’s Speciality Food Show is the only trade show for the speciality food and drink market in Scotland. The show is located and run concurrently with Scotland’s Trade Fair in Hall 4 of the SECC. The fair attracts its own audience of delicatessens, farm shops, speciality food retailers and food hall buyers as well as providing an opportunity for gift shops to purchase food and drink products to compliment their existing ranges.

The fair regularly attracts 1000 retailers seeking new products and ranges from approximately 120 companies from all over the UK.
