Vendor Success Workshop

Groundswell lead a Test Market workshop at Gibsons Public Market. During the workshop, vendors set up a mock booth for feedback, connected with fellow makers and small business owners, and participated in hands on workshops that provided effective tools to prepare businesses for Night Markets. 
At the end of the season in mid-September, the Groundswell team will return to debrief your learning experience. 

Thank you to our workshop sponsors – the Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Organization (SCREDO) and Community Futures.
