F2F Events, organiser of the Allergy & Free From Shows has announced the launch of a Scottish edition to be held at the SECC next year.
Tom Treverton event director said: “It’s incredibly exciting to launch the fourth edition of this phenomenal event. While growing the show in London, Liverpool and Berlin, we have been inundated with requests from members of the Scottish public, who are so keen for this event to head their way.
“The scale of public demand, combined with a tremendously positive response from producers in the maturing FreeFrom market, meant Scotland was absolutely the right choice for our next show, with Glasgow’s SECC providing the perfect venue to make it happen.”
The Scottish event will focus on individuals living ‘Free From’ ingredients such as gluten, wheat, eggs, nuts or dairy, or those needing avoid dust mites, latex or other materials.
The Allergy & Free From Show Scotland will be held on 19-20 March 2016, at Glasgow’s Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre, joining the F2F portfolio with events in London, Liverpool and Berlin, which recently attracted a collective audience in excess of 52,000 visitors.
Dan Thurlow, director of exhibition sales at SECC, said: “This is an event we have been observing for a number of years and are thrilled to now have a deal with F2F Events to bring it to Glasgow.
“Given the increasing demand for FreeFrom products and information in Scotland, this is a show that our region really wants, so it feels great to be hosting it for them at our venue.”
