Some more info…


Showcase Scotland is the largest gathering of the international music community in the Scottish calendar. A chance for promoters, record labels, agents and festival organisers to meet both the Scottish industry and each other. A chance to see, first hand, a vast array of performances from the cream of Scottish talent all of whom perform as part of the world’s largest Celtic music festival, Celtic Connections.


The 2016 Trade Fair takes place on Friday 29th January between 10am and 3pm: bookings are now open for trade stands (which may be shared by more than one business*). Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Showcase Scotland requests a contribution of £150 + VAT per stand to help cover the costs of producing the Fair. Each stand is allocated 3 free passes to the event.

*Musicians/bands/ can share a trade stand to a maximum of three (3); all partners must be arranged in advance and a complete stall booked as unfortunately Showcase Scotland are unable to administrate the sharing of stands.

Each year Showcase Scotland produces an A6 pocket guide which is given to each delegate on arrival. This pocket guide is primarily a guide to all performances and events at Showcase.

After collecting feedback from the delegates we have discovered that the pocket guide also proves to be a key tool when they come to booking their festivals/programmes and therefore sits on desks all year round. This means that for artists, agents, record labels and the live industry it is invaluable.

For festivals and live events, please remember that the agents/record labels are also delegates and so if you want to market your festival to them, the guide offers you a key chance to do so.

We have limited availability so please book now if you wish to take out an advert. Artwork specifications will be sent out once you book your ad.

If you wish to book an advert and a trade stand our special offer makes for a significant saving. We also have an early bird offer for adverts which ends at 9am on 21st September 2016.

For further information on any of the above please email with your query.
