Scotland’s First Halal Exhibition To Take Place

News From : DagangHalal.com (08 Oct 2010)

Glasgow Central Mosque will play host to the UK’s first Be Halal exhibition showcasing a free day of Halal entertainment and exhibitions, providing something for the whole family to enjoy.

The event will be a fresh and exciting way of bringing Halal products and suppliers together with the prosperous Muslim community in Scotland and give the opportunity for traditional Muslim-focused companies to expand their customer base and showcase genuine products and services.

Founding director of Oceanic Consulting, Irfan Younis – the UK’s leading ethnic consulting and Promotions Company, highlighted the importance of such an event to the Muslim community in the country: “The current Muslim population in the UK is estimated at 1.9 million and growing, currently representing 3.2 per cent of the total population,” he said.

“The Muslim community in Britain has an estimated spending power of over $20.5 billion meaning extensive market potential. Be Halal will allow for greater awareness of Halal products and services, and allow the Muslim community to show its economic strength.”

The Be Halal exhibition on 10 October is only part of a much bigger campaign to raise the profile of traditional Muslim focused businesses.

Exhibiters include Simras Fashion House, Delicious Too, Je Roche Fashion House, Saima Jewles, Candylicious and Amina-Muslim resource centre.

The concept will further see the launch of an online directory as well as the launch of a bi-annual magazine.
