The September markets
Hello lovely designers! Hope you are all well, and not too cold and miserable. This is a quick reminder about a few things that you need to be aware of. First of all applications for the September market are open, and if you didn’t use an envelope at the June market, and you want to reapply, this is the time! (Applications close 26 June.)
The website application now allows you to apply for the December market too. If you apply now you can still use the envelope in September to pay for the December market – we won’t be closing applications until early October, but this is a way of helping you and us be prepared for the busy Christmas season. And if you applied using your envelope for September you can still go on line and apply for December. (We are covering all the bases!)
I thought you might like an update on the catering situation at EPIC. We had a meeting with the management, and the outcome is that the catering manager has been sacked and replaced. (Sad for him but good for us.) We are also working on the concept of a separate Gourmet Food Hall from now on, which means that there will be sensational food available (including food made by many of you of course!)
And finally – if you aren’t aware of it, or need reminding about it, there is a FREE digital marketing course being run in Canberra for our designers (you!). All the details can be found here. If you want to learn about using social media effectively to market your products, this is a great place to start – or to have a brush up on what you already know!
