📍 Natural Health Exhibition, SEC Glasgow.
I was lucky enough to win tickets to ‘The Natural Exhibition’ this weekend ( Thank-you Serenity Massage!). The exhibition aims to showcase organic, natural, vegan and eco brands from across the UK, to introduce you to new products and services available on the market.
The event is hosted by SEC in Glasgow, so we were able to take in the beautiful views of the shipyards and river Clyde on our walk from the car park. Exhibitors include; Kiehl’s, Neal’s Yard Remedies, Beauty Kitchen, BMW ( with THE most amazing eco cars on show) and Missy’s Vegan Cupcakes. There are also a few businesses offering free taster treatments in back, neck and shoulder massage as well as Indian Head Massage (from what I saw). This is worth the ticket price alone! The exhibitors are extremely friendly and (obviously) keen to talk about their brands, and the steps they take within their businesses to make a positive mark on the planet.
With regards to the event, I thoroughly enjoyed the stalls and their approachable owners. I have been introduced to ethical businesses that I will definitely purchase from in future. However, the event was not as busy as I thought it would be, and almost verged on ‘awkward’. I think with a little bit more of a promotional focus, to help spread the word, it would be a much more popular day out. Glasgow has previously been named ‘Most Vegan-Friendly City’ by PETA, so there is definitely a market for the exhibition and, to be honest, it’s genuinely interesting to see and hear how ethical companies are taking on the world, let alone getting to sample their amazing products! The event is something a little different, and if the Natural Exhibition returns next year, so will I!
