IndieMe offers Virtual Expo in September
IndieMe Marketplace, LLC, an online marketplace for retailers to source handmade American and Canadian artist-made craft for over 22 years, announced that it will hold its second Virtual Expo from Sep. 9-15, 2020*.
The IndieMe Marketplace has over 22 years in the handcrafted wholesale industry marketing and managing the online platform. In addition, the company has produced over 20 physical trade shows. This Virtual Expo is another option to the traditional trade shows.
“Several months ago, we found ourselves in unchartered waters dealing with this pandemic. Our industry, like many others, has been adversely affected. At IndieMe we continue to look for ways to keep moving forward towards the future. We are excited to announce the 2nd IndieMe Marketplace Virtual Expo, Sep. 9 – 15, 2020! Our first-ever, wholesale, handcrafted virtual trade show held in early June 2020, was a huge success; with 500 orders placed during the seven-day event. Over 900 buyers registered to ‘walk’ the event and many of them told us it was just what the industry needed,” explained Jacqueline Adamany, owner of IndieMe Marketplace, LLC.
The expertise and industry-specific knowledge provided by IndieMe Marketplace, LLC, positions the company for the concept of a Virtual Expo. “We want to offer the option to stay home and shop. The Virtual Expo is structured like a traditional trade show: show specials by participating artists, giveaways and credits to buyers, as well as educational webinars,” shared Adamany.
The Virtual Expo is free for qualified buyers and a nominal fee is charged to artists. Learn more at indieme.com/virtual_expo and save the date for the third Virtual Expo, Feb. 10 – 15, 2020.
