March Events Digest 2020

Fleurette Aromas Handmade Canberra

Things are ramping up in our March Events Digest 2020

This last month we’ve been flat out working with makers to put their best foot forward with stallholder applications for markets.  

Now is the time of year where being organised pays off (let’s face it, it always pays off).  A lot of applications are closing (or have closed!) for markets that are many months away. Make sure you keep checking our Events Calendar so you don’t miss out. 

Things are ramping up for shoppers and creatives looking for inspo IRL. Handmade Canberra have relaunched with new branding ahead of their first massive market in 2020.  Melbourne Design Week also kicks off this month, Australia Design Centre is back with another Makers Market and of course a highlight on the DBP calendar is the Create + Connect conference in Brisbane!

Did you miss out on tickets to the conference, but still keen to tune in on the day?  You can purchase a live-stream ticket to watch the entire day from the comfort of home.  With both Angela and myself presenting a seminar, we think it’s totally worth the $82.50 investment!  Do it! 

Read our March Events Digest below to get the low-down on opportunities and events currently available to Australian creative and makers.
