Register for Scotland’s Trade Fair

Scotland’s Trade Fair opens at the end of next week and will be unveiling many brand new products and designs.

With about 400 exhibitors from gift, homewares, jewellery, fashion accessories, clothing and textiles, the show is expecting an excellent turnout of retailers and buyers, all keen to find interesting, original and commercial products that sell. Combined with the largest ever speciality food show in the same hall, the SECC in Glasgow will be buzzing.

One third of all exhibitors are new, ranging from Marmoo jewellery as featured in Vogue, Churchill China, Abraham Moon textiles, Vizati jewellery, Customworks heritage giftware, Bigjig Toys, and D & J Glassware to larger new companies such as Coeur de Lion jewellery, Hill Interiors and Norfolk China. Down the spine of the Show runs the Launch Gallery for young exciting companies such as Arthouse Originals designer interiors, Amy Britton Scottish gadget cases and Clanbags.

Retailers must remember to register for free entry before 18 January.
