The Marketplace

Welcome to the Meeanjin Markets 2020 application process.

The applications for a place in the MARKETPLACE for the May 8 & 9 event are closed. If you would like information on the November 27 & 28 event please subscribe for updates.

As part of our funding arrangements we have to prioritise Indigenous artisans located in SEQ. So that everyone has the opportunity to be involved we have established the Meeanjin Marketplace. If you are NOT located in SEQ you can send us your products and we sell them for you on consignment for you. We do charge a nominal fee for this service to cover our expenses. 

 

We can also sell for you if you are based in SEQ but can’t have your own stall. For example, if you are in the start up phase of your business and would like to test your products. Please contact us for further information on our consignment process or check our website.

What you need to apply

You will be asked to provide us with some of your business details including ABN (if you have one). We will also ask you about the types of products you will selling. Please work on describing your products in a way that will make you stand out from the crowd.  Email any product shots you to markets@seqicc.com.au

 

If you are a returning to the Marketplace, your place is not automatically guaranteed. So please ensure you highlight your NEW products! You will be judged with the pool of new applicants.
