Whether you are in direct sales, own your own Etsy shop, or simply make and sell crafts from your home, direct sales vendor events are great ways to introduce your company and product to a new customer base! How to find vendor events in your area is a question that pops up a lot. Let’s take a look at how to find vendor events in your local area!
Local Facebook Groups
Do you belong to any local Facebook groups? A community discussion board or neighborhood watch group? Seek out these types of groups on Facebook and begin engaging in the conversation. Most local events start on Facebook and the key is to connect with the organizer to ensure you are included in the upcoming local event.
Holiday / Craft Fairs
We all know that towards the end of each year there are many holiday and craft fairs that happen annually. Reach out to the organizers of these events and ask what the requirements are to be included! Once booked, be friendly with other vendors to see what direct sales vendor events are coming up in future months!
As the new school year rolls around, so do the fundraisers and school events. Many have an annual event to raise funds for the school and require a small fee plus an item to raffle. Don’t forget to include your business card with any raffle item you donate!
Create Your Own!
Do you have a few local friends who also have home-based businesses? Get together and seek out a location in your area that may allow you to set up your tables in exchange for a small fee. Some local businesses may appreciate the opportunity of exposure and have your direct sales vendor events be free! Always remember to respect the space offered and leave the place exactly as you found it.
