Showcasing Scotland (West) 7th March 2018

Showcasing Scotland is a new series of regional food and drink trade events that seek to connect trade buyers and suppliers on a regional basis.  Our region (West) is the first one and it takes place on 7th March 2018 at Hampden. The event is a mix of curated introductions (speed dating style) and trade exhibition. 

Demand for producer places is likely to exceed spaces - if you are interested in attending this event as a producer please get in touch with me to discuss before you apply.  More information on the event and application details are here: https://showcasing.scot/wp-content/cache/all//index.html

For Producers:  If you are trade ready and want to connect with new trade buyers throughout Scotland then you need to apply for this, but more importantly you need to think about your capacity to service volume sales.  Give me a ring to discuss if you want to know more about the application process and to explore the potential opportunities for your business.

For Buyers:  If you want to source new product lines then this event is well worth attending.  Buyer registration is here: https://showcasing.scot/buyer-registration/
