Nessies Den Scotland's Trade Fairs and Scotland's Speciality Food Show

What is Nessie's Den?

Held in the Talking Shop Seminar Theatre, this is our version of Dragon’s Den. On Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th up to 10 Launch Gallery exhibitors will pitch their products to our panel of expert retailers. The exhibitors will gain useful advice, ideas and feedback on their products from the Nessies and possibly an order or two.

This is a great way to hear more about our Launch Gallery companies that are new to wholesale and new to the show.

You don't have to book in advance for this session but we do recommend arriving early to grab a seat!
