Book a stand

The exhibition and marketplace is the hub of The Gathering.  

This year we are doing things a little differently, by increasing time between events so visitors can spend more time browsing around the marketplace and engaging with our exhibitors. We have made some changes to the layout of the hall and created more space than ever before for exhibitors to showcase their products and services. Due to the success of last year we have also increased the space available in our Social Enterprise Street, there’s a range of smaller stands available for grassroots organisations and there will be even more interactive opportunities for visitors to engage with.

Of course, the hall will still feature networking areas and a range of catering options. We’ll be welcoming back ‘Beat the Goalie’ from Street Soccer Scotland, pampering sessions from West Lothian College hair and beauty salon and Glasgow Association for Mental Health will be providing stress busting massages and energising sessions – all free of charge for our visitors.
