How we will promote your business and the show!

We've been producing successful pop-up shopping events for 12+ years

To promote the show we will be using the following marketing vehicles:

• Our established media property,
• Past ticket buyer lists
• Dedicated email blasts
• Social media
• Our social network (both online & off)
• email newsletters
• Chicago Artisan Market website, email & social
• Press releases to 3rd party media and bloggers

We will print and distribute postcards and posters to participating artisans, partners, hotels and neighborhood businesses. We will also be inviting local media, bloggers and influencers to attend the event.

Our favorite way of promoting our events is by showcasing our vendors – on all our media properties!

We carefully pick each artist we work with, knowing that our event success depends on it.

Please note the following:

• We will publish & promote artisan profiles for every vendor on
• All vendor profiles will be accessible from the Chicago Artisan Market website.
• We will support each artisan profile using social media.
• We will periodically include promotion of our artisans in our weekly email newsletter,  as well as event emails from Chicago Artisan Market.

That means extra advertising for you – at no additional cost!
