Scotland’s Trade Fair Spring will be back in person at the SEC in Glasgow from 23-25 January 2022. The show follows on from September’s Scotland’s Trade Fair Autumn, with the industry confidently looking forward to the bigger January exhibition, say the organisers Springboard Events. Over 500 exhibitors will showcase their products, ranging from gifts to crafts and jewellery to textiles.
“After such a tough period for Scotland’s retail industry we are delighted to be back in January,” states show director Mark Saunders. “Interest for the show from potential exhibitors has been positive and we are pleased to be showcasing many new and innovative producers from Scotland, the UK and beyond.”
Continues Mark: “We aim to be a one-stop show for all independent retailers in Scotland and northern England. However, much as online ordering has advanced recently, nothing quite beats seeing and feeling the products in person, networking and re-connecting with the industry.”
Returning to the January show will be the Best Product Awards, workshops and talks from experts, as well as the Launch Gallery and Craft Gallery which are often a first stop for buyers.
Scotland’s Trade Fair Online is also keeping suppliers and retailers connected with a combination of an online product directory and live product sessions.
