November 11, 12, & 13, 2016
Carlson Center – Fairbanks, Alaska
The Holiday Marketplace is a one stop Christmas shopping extravaganza for Fairbanks and outlying areas. From hand-made soap, to beaded earrings, to imported wool sweaters…It’s all together in one location on one floor with lots of free parking. Admission is $5 at the door, children 12 and under are free.
The show’s continued success attracts not only local but state-wide businesses and artists. Over 175 different vendors participated in the 2015 event and it had a 3 day public attendance of over 8000. With 2015 comes all of your favorite booths as well as some exciting new gift ideas.
If you are a vendor looking for a holiday show, the Holiday Marketplace has become an established, highly anticipated, annual event that Fairbanks consumers use as the kick off to their holiday shopping season. It is an excellent chance for you to market your goods to a wide cross section of our community. The show generally sells out so register early. Don’t miss this once-a-year opportunity to be part of the excitement, profit, and fun.
Preference will be given to hand made in Alaska items and items unique to the event.
It’s taking place at the Carlson Center, the interior’s premier location for trade shows. There’s over 43,000 sq. ft. of available space and the unique layout of this show provides 112 corner spaces with additional aisles for great traffic flow.
The dates for the 2015 event are November 11, 12, & 13. Six weeks before Christmas…giving shoppers plenty of time to get those out of state gifts in the mail.
$7,000 will be spent on advertising The Holiday Marketplace. All three medias will be used, TV, Radio, and the newspaper. In addition there will be media co-sponsors to the event that will raise our advertising budget to well over $10,000.
There are decorating contests with awards for both best theme and best overall holiday cheer so put those thinking caps on and let’s light up the show!
