Trade Session Trade Fair

The trade session at the Manchester Beer & Cider Festival will see hundreds of publicans, brewers and other suppliers descend on Manchester Central.

Our Trade Fair, held during the Trade Session, is an ideal opportunity to make new contacts, meet new suppliers & customers.

The Festival is offering brewers & cider producers who are featured at the festival, along with other brewing industry suppliers the opportunity to promote their products to the hundreds of visiting publicans, bar owners and other retailers during our trade session on Wednesday 22nd January.

The festival will provide tables where you can display promotional materials, show off your products and offer samples. It is not, however, an opportunity to sell your produce.

There will be no charge to book a table. Those booking tables will have access from 2pm to set up their display before we open at 3pm.
The session will close at 9pm and all materials must be removed by 10pm.

To apply for a place at the trade fair, please complete the form below:

If staff working on your stand intend to come to the festival after 3pm, you will also need to apply for Trade Session tickets in order to gain access to the Festival. Click here for Trade Session ticket information.
