As local brands and businesses we need opportunities to connect with the buying public to thrive. Especially if we are handcrafters, artists and small indie brands. We often work from home without much exposure locally. Our niche events offer the often woman run small business or brand an avenue to connect with their potential audience, create networking opportunities and of course sell or demonstrate their wares to a wider audience all at once. Our vendor events are personalized and our niche is 40-150 local small businesses.
Our vendors are brand enthusiastic and ready to share their skill and demonstrate that skill when the opportunity arises. Our vendor focused events help connect these local small brands and businesses with the buying public in short day long or four to six hour personal shopper events. Often these events highlight predominately women run homebased businesses and brands.
Why should you sponsor?
A sponsorship would help create awareness and ensure an increase of the influx of potential shoppers and create brand awareness for the sponsor. The vendors benefit from overall traffic boost and have a sense of being more connected to a larger network- therefor elevating their businesses overall.
After 20 years in various non profit roles in which I coordinated staff,volunteers and program participants- I relocated to Kentucky to enjoy a slower pace. I was able to get back into my creative artistic self - there by creating, selling and now launching niche vendor events that try to focus on boosting women owned, often homebased businesses and brands by coordinating a platform in which these businesses could present, network and potentially grow their networks while also growing my own base of practice. It's challenging, and rewarding when done correctly. I would like to develop partnerships that assist small women run local businesses and homebased brands break out into a more mainstream platform that still is able to deliver a one on one customer experience.
