UK-based makers, this is your opportunity to showcase at the Handmade Designer Maker section of NY NOW 2020, a renowned international trade fair. 

Craft Scotland is delighted to announce our partnership with Department for International Trade (DIT) at NY NOW in February 2020. DIT is a United Kingdom government department that promotes British trade across the world through grants and their varied programme with partners.

It is the leading trade fair for contemporary design across home, lifestyle, handmade and gift products. The show has been established for over 30 years, with each show attracting approximately 20,000 visitors. The show is open to trade buyers from Saturday 1 to Tuesday 4 February 2020.

Craft Scotland will take twenty makers to the show and has secured twenty Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) grants of £2,000 for each successful maker (providing they meet the eligibility criteria).

Craft Scotland, as part of our national partnership with DIT, we are inviting applications from makers who are based throughout the UK. Makers must be eligible for a Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP) Grant to apply for this opportunity.
