SEATTLE HOLIDAY MARKET 2019

Can’t yet confirm dates for 2019 but it’s HIGHLY probable it’ll once again be on Black Friday/Small Business Saturday weekend at Hangar 30 in Magnuson Park because…well, because that’s been working out incredibly well for everyone!

 

If you’re interested in applying for exhibitor space at the 2018 show, you’d better hurry up—it’s almost completely sold out! Apply now!

 

GeekCraft Expo

RDU HOLIDAY MARKET 2019

There’s a chance that we’ll be moving this one over to the Durham Convention Center due to space constraints at the Durham Armory…which (*sniff*) we love but it’s getting to be kinda small for this show—and their reservation process is INSANE. Stay tuned for updates!

 

FYI: We’re still accepting applications for the 2018 RDU Holiday Market on Dec. 8-9 but if you’d like to apply for space, you’d better make it quick—it’s almost all gone! Apply here!
