The dates for Scotlandâ€™s Trade Fair have been moved back to 27-29 March, thanks to the rising rate of Covid infections.
The show, which is held at the SEC, Glasgow, is Scotlandâ€™s biggest and only trade fair.
More than 500 companies will exhibit thousands of products to retail buyers. Exhibitors include gift and food wholesale suppliers from Scotland and other areas of the UK showing a range of products from greetings cards to home interiors, coffee and chocolate.
Visitors will be first to see the Launch Gallery suppliers – new young companies – with many unveiling their ranges at this Show. Exhibitors include Agate & Ayre, Craftypups, Edinburgh Illustrations, Eriskay Candles and The Cute Soaperi.
You can also learn new business tips, understand how to expand your businessâ€™s profile and be inspired with a series of panel discussions, masterclasses and talks in the Talking Shop Seminar Theatre.
Show director Mark Saunders said: â€œWe had no choice about the postponement of the Show but in many ways there are more things to look forward to and be excited about with the new March dates. We have new suppliers coming forward looking for stands already, as well as many exhibitors being in a better position to provide stock immediately in March so shops should expect short lead times on supply. Together with a comprehensive programme of talks, masterclasses and other activities, this date should firmly be in the diaries of independent retailers.â€
