Nessie's Den

This year for the second time we introduce Nessie’s Den. This will be a similar format to that of the famous BBC programme Dragon’s Den, where businesses pitch their ideas to a panel of experts and ask for funding but in a more light-hearted way. A selection of new, young exhibitors will have their chance to pitch their products in just 5 minutes to our panel of retail experts who will assess their pitch and products and comment on whether they deem them to be ‘stockable’, commercial products. The experts are only commenting on the products purely for feedback to the exhibitor.

Location: "Talking Shop" Seminar Theatre
Date: Monday, 20 January
Time: 1pm

Our panel of Nessie's for 2020 will be:

  • Soni Ahmed, Maia Gifts
  • Karen Shand, Proposals
  • Gemma McQue, National Trust for Scotland
