About the event
The Goblin Market is a rare event in that it mixes real vendors selling their real wares alongside fake vendors (our own volunteers) giving away tokens and trinkets, but not accepting money at all.
Fake vendors (aka the goblins) request something of the attendees in order to get the item. Whether it's as simple as their favorite color, or the eye color they've always wanted all the way to confessing a regret or a dream they've never fulfilled but had a chance to.
We have 3 rooms set up with vendors and goblins, musicians playing as well, and an overall atmosphere of otherworldly and in the spirit of fun and games. No souls will be accepted.
Pre-registrations receive swag bags with tokens from us (to be used with the goblins) as well as your coupons, postcards, or business cards. At-door sales will have availability to the promotional material as well at the registration table.
Why should you sponsor?
Our event is a change of convention culture. We capture two different audiences: those who attend weekend long conventions and those who don't have the time/money to attend weekend long conventions.
Goblin Market ran before in NJ under a convention, and it has a success in Dallas as well. We're bringing it to Atlanta with the intention of growing it further next year.
Our audience ranges from South Carolina to Alabama to Florida... we've had ticket sales for this event in all of these locations. We're expecting up to 1000 people.
Who wouldn't want a goblin promoting them? :)
We are Time Travel Events, ran by Suzanne and Erin. By day we are office managers and by night we run historical and off-the-wall events. We help manage sci-fi and fantasy conventions in Atlanta as well, but wanted to throw one day events through-out Atlanta.
We've developed a professional and very positive reputation with vendors and attendees, and we find that to be just as important as our profit margin.
But we do need help in things other than operating costs. We fully support the community we base our events in and always want to give more. We'd love to gift our volunteers because in the convention world, they are severely underappreciated.
Our inbox is open any time! Get to know us! We don't bite. Well.. Erin maybe?
