The GH Marketplace presents curated monthly shopping experiences highlighting local artists and entrepreneurs, artisanal producers, creative collectives and social enterprises. At the Gladstone, we believe buying local, seasonal and championing and facilitating opportunities for artists, entrepreneurs and micro producers is necessary to support our local environment and our local economy. Our monthly marketplace is connected to our cultural programming strategy. And one of the ways that we strive to grow our community of creatives and innovators and connect them to each other and to our guests. Each GH Marketplace is themed and collaboratively created working with independent curators or in partnership with cultural and community groups.
The GH Marketplace is focused on showcasing independent and emerging artists, entrepreneurs and social enterprises. We like to shine a spotlight on innovators, movers and shakers.
The unique setting of the hotel, and the size (usually 20 vendors), focus and mandate of our marketplace provides every participant with the opportunity to be prominently featured.
The Gladstone Hotel is an inclusive venue that operates in an evolving anti-oppressive framework where everyone feels welcome and at home.
Participation costs for vendors are minimal compared to trade shows and more commercial events. Markets are free with no admission fee to the public.
We work hard to support vendors to draw audience and professional contacts via our networks and provide access to our social media followers.
The Gladstone staff team supports market planning, marketing and promotions to make participating is easy and rewarding. And we engage individual curators, advocators and partners who provide expertise, connect their networks and infuse their creative energy make each market hum.
When you participate in GH Marketplace events you become part of the Gladstone Hotel family. You will see your neighbours, your colleagues, and people you would like to meet - new clients, future collaborators.
