Thank you, retailers, and artists, for a remarkably successful 4th Virtual Expo. All of us at IndieMe hope you had a wonderful week of shopping.

IndieMe created the first handcrafted Virtual show in 2020 to support both the retailer and the artist. As the year 2020 began to unfold, it became noticeably clear that in person shows would be shutting down and we needed to find a way to replicate that virtually. We believe we have done that with our Virtual Expo.

The IndieMe Virtual Expo continues to grow and we know when they are successful, our members are successful. Our most recent September 2021 expo grew by 130% from our first expo in June 2020. Many of our retailers keep telling us it is “just what the industry needed.” We are excited to announce our 5th IndieMe Marketplace Virtual Expo, February 2-8, 2022!

The expertise and industry specific knowledge provided by IndieMe Marketplace, LLC, positions the company for the concept of the Virtual Expo. Many retailers appreciate the fact our platform is only handcrafted Made in the USA/Canada, which saves considerable time of weeding through 100’s of items to get to the handcrafted. As one buyer told us, “Kudos for all of your hard work. I love the Virtual Expos and will, of course, be placing orders at that time. The artists that you have assembled are an exceptional group with high quality products. I love being part of the IndieMe family. Thank you!”

How does a Virtual Expo Differ from everyday IndieMe Shopping?

The Virtual Expo is a week-long "event" where all attending artists will be offering buyer incentives like show specials, free shipping and debuting new products. During this week long event, IndieMe will be hosting buyer giveaways where buyers who place orders during the Expo will be registered in daily drawings to win items like gift cards and beautiful items donated by participating artists. Throughout the event IndieMe will release dynamic editorial content designed and focused on business development. Look for our Ask a Buyer Series, Maker Stories, our signature Be Inspired series and more.

During the Virtual Expo, a buyer will login to the IndieMe Marketplace as they currently do. They will have the choice to shop as they normally do on IndieMe or they can "walk the Virtual Expo" simply by clicking on the Virtual Expo link. Once at the Virtual Expo the buyer will only be able to shop from attending expo artists. Saving to wish lists, adding to carts and ordering will all proceed as they currently do on the IndieMe Marketplace platform. All on a robust, visually attractive and intuitive platform.

Retailers, if you want 100% handcrafted items for your store the expo is the WEEK to shop! The specials, incentives and lower minimums are too good to pass up. Register for the Virtual Expo here and start spreading the news!
