As a member of Glasgow Social Enterprise Network (GSEN), Kibble welcomed the chance to get involved and become a sponsor of the organisation’s first ever trade show. GSEN is a membership network for social enterprise leaders in Greater Glasgow, all sharing a common belief that social enterprise can transform the economic, environmental, social and cultural life of Glasgow.
Shortly before Christmas, The Briggait, a stunning historical building in the heart of the city, opened its doors to the public and businesses to host the free event. With over 30 exhibitors including The Experience, the event was well attended. The Experience is a themed entertainment and events venue, housing Scotland’s only indoor electric adult and junior go-karting arena, and operates as a social enterprise under the KibbleWorks banner. It will provide a minimum of 50 transitional jobs for young people aged 16+ annually and offer opportunities for vocational training and work experience.
Lynsey McLean, General Manager at The Experience said: “It’s a great idea to hold an event like this in Glasgow where all the different organisations can trade together and bring in members of the public. A lot of people aren’t aware of what a social enterprise is and the quality of products and services offered so it’s really important to back events like this.”
The event was filmed throughout the day and comments were captured from those in attendance. View their feedback in the film below.
