Seeking an affordable way to get your products and services directly into the hands of urban females in the 25 – 45 demographic?
Build Your Brand + Get Sales with Shop Socials Events!
What Type of Customers Will I Meet? Predominantly single with high disposable income, our attendees join us to learn about and shop the newest fashion, beauty and lifestyle products and services, before they hit the malls. They’re reading FASHION, TheKit.ca and Oprah. They’re watching The Social, Girls and Mad Men and they’re carrying their Visa Debit card in a cute wallet scored in that little boutique just off Queen West.
How Much Will It Cost? Vendor spaces start at $150 with sponsorship opportunities starting around $500. Prices are based event attendance, event duration, venue and additional perks or benefits granted including marketing value and display furniture. Yes, we are absolutely priced higher many other vendor opportunities given than some of our pop-ups are only a few hours in length, however, young brands seeking to establish a more upscale image and for looking exposure to clientele they might not find at a street fair or community centre event understand that we offer an opportunity to sell but also to create brand awareness amongst a higher end market. In comparison to other branding and retailing channels our events are absolutely the most cost effective.
FYI – We also love working with independent clients to produce, host and promote their own pop-ups, trunk shows and fashion shows. In fact, many of our independent clients started out with a small vendor table and have grown to be able to support their own highly trafficked sales event.
How Can I Become A Vendor? Many of our events are curated, meaning we hand select vendors based on a specific theme. For example, our Retro Style Lab a few years back hosted vintage clothing vendors alongside labels offering new pieces with retro influences. However, where it suits we will do an open call for vendors first to our past vendors, next to our database and lastly by having our sales reps cold call.

*BONUS* When you do, you’ll receive a copy of our CEO’s latest eBook, Stop the Sabotage: 10 Ways You’re Wrecking Your Return on Investment at Vendor Events. This easy read is packed full of strategic ways to maximize your next vendor event.
What Results Will I Get As A Vendor? We never, EVER promise specific results because we can’t guarantee that crazy weather or a subway closure won’t keep guests home instead of out shopping or that Suzie Shopper will love your product, price or sales approach more than Vicki Vendors. In fact, it gives us an icky feeling when we hear other event producers selling vendor spaces with promises of thousands through the door and thousands in sales. We do have an excellent track record for producing well organized events and a solid reputation for bringing out fabulous women to shop.
