The Allergy and Free From Present’s occasion organisers have gone into liquidation that means the reveals have been cancelled…nevertheless it appears guests have not been informed, solely exhibitors – for the Glasgow present these had been knowledgeable earlier than Christmas. All reveals appear to be cancelled and have disappeared from the venues websites, but tickets are nonetheless out there for these widespread reveals.
This does not have an effect on the Bristol Free From Competition that are fully totally different organisers
The Allergy and Free From Reveals have been taking place a good few years, beginning in London and likewise beginning a Liverpool present a couple of years later (final 12 months this one moved to Birmingham) which was adopted by one beginning in Glasgow extra not too long ago. So the publish did shock me just a little as nothing appeared to have been introduced wherever.
I used to like these reveals had been nice for locating new gluten free manufacturers, albeit through the years I’ve discovered respectable stalls reducing with extra fillers like Cats Safety edging in. Once I first went 8 years in the past I keep in mind shopping for a lot at low cost costs however through the years I began coming away with much less and fewer which was a disgrace however at all times value a go to to talk to different Coeliacs and see if there was any new gluten free merchandise being unveiled on the reveals.
After I noticed the publish I had a poke across the interwebs and located that the corporate (having exhibited at a present earlier than I had a dig via my emails to seek out the corporate title) behind the Allergy Present had certainly gone into liquidation, and it really occurred in December in response to firms home web page.
Having spoke to a few exhibitors, together with Good It is Gluten Free on Twitter, the exhibitors of the Glasgow Allergy and Free From Present had been knowledgeable simply earlier than Christmas that the occasion was cancelled. It appears the identical honour hasn’t been given to those that have signed up without cost tickets to go to the occasions although.
The Allergy and Free From Present web sites are nonetheless energetic and letting guests get free tickets. Nevertheless, if you happen to have a look at every venues web sites they’ve totally different occasions scheduled when the Allergy Reveals needs to be and no signal of those occasions taking place alongside anything (say in several halls), so my guess is all three have been cancelled with out speaking to potential guests.
Glasgow was scheduled to occur on the 3-Fifth March but these are the occasions on SEC’s web site for spherical these dates
London’s was 7-Ninth July however equally occasion is lacking from the Excels web site.
Birmigham’s Allergy Present date hadn’t been introduced however would normally be round starting of November.
Why they have not informed free ticket holder is anybody’s guess, greater than possible all the way down to the liquidation course of can be my hunch- however with the Glasgow present being simply 3 weeks away it’s leaving it late when there shall be people who find themselves reserving trains, planes and accommodations to go to.
So beware, Glasgow is unquestionably cancelled and it does appear to be London is similar.
Do you might have any reminiscences of the Allergy Present? What had been your favorite finds from them? I keep in mind first discovering Promise Gluten Free bread nicely earlier than they hit supermarkets and attending to attempt Juvela bread too when it was prescription solely! Oh and might’t overlook the day the place nearly emptied once we had been exhibiting due to the World Cup…most exhibitors had been watching the England match on their telephones!
