The 2023 Trade Fair takes place on Friday 27th January 2023 between 9.30am and 2.30pm and bookings are now open for trade stands (which may be shared by more than one business*). The Trade Fair takes place in the upper foyers of Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Showcase Scotland requests a contribution of £175 + VAT per stand to help cover the costs of producing the Fair. Each stand is allocated 3 Trade Fair passes. This price has been frozen from the 2022 event (which was eventually cancelled) despite further increases in infrastructure costs. Recent changes in the rules around VAT (sales tax) mean that we have to charge 20% VAT to all exhibitors no matter which country they are from. Each stand is supplied with a table with tablecloth, 2 chairs and a power point. We will also supply velcro strips to allow you attach posters etc. to the walls of your stand.
* Up to 3 self-representing musicians/bands/artists can share a trade stand in order to split the cost. To do this please purchase a single stand, noting the sharing parties in the relevant section of the booking form. The sharing parties may be allocated up to three trade fair passes each if required, however due to space restrictions there is only room for three people to operate a stand at any given time. Please note this offer is not open to all exhibitors, it is strictly for self-representing artists.
We would normally offer advertising in our pocket guide alongside the trade stands but we are running a paperless event in 2023 so there will be no pocket guide. There will be limited advertising opportunities in the Showcase Scotland App and we will send a separate offer for these.

PLEASE NOTE ALL BOOKINGS WILL BE FULLY REFUNDABLE UNTIL 30 DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT
