New Craft Gallery at Scotland's Trade Fair Autumn

New Craft Gallery at Scotland's Trade Fair Autumn: Image 1 Taking place on 22nd and 23rd September, Scotland's Trade Fair Autumn will feature a refreshed layout and new Craft Gallery. The existing Launch Gallery will also be extended, offering visitors access to a host of innovative and exciting exhibitors.

The show is aimed at independent retailers, and will feature approximately 180 exhibitors displaying cards, homewares, gifts, textiles, jewellery and food.

The Launch Gallery will feature a range of new companies including Kushboo, Sandwich Bay Candles, The Wee Book Company, Mella Soap, Seddon and Davison and Woollyhatz. Across speciality food, exhibitors will include Chrystal's Shortbread, Smoky Brae, School Yard Chillies, Chocolat Box and Scotia Spice Foods. Applications are currently being considered for the new craft area, with initial interest described as positive.

“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 event,” says Mark Saunders, show director. “However, our autumn show is more than just buying, as it allows shops the chance to find out what is on-trend in the marketplace, discover new exhibitors, offers the opportunity for networking and catching up with suppliers and is a welcome day out after what we hope will be a busy summer season. With many British people opting to holiday at home, plus many foreign visitors flocking to Scotland, shops should have an excellent summer and will be ready to re-order in September.”
