So you want to be a vendor?
Our application process exists to ensure our markets are curated to showcase vendors of the best quality, creativity, and individuality.
Keep an eye on this site for dates and details of upcoming events
, or better yet, join our vendor mailing list
so we can email you an event announcement when application periods open.
Our two step process is as follows:
Make an APPLICATION*. You can access this application form via a link from this website when application periods open, or through an email sent to our Vendor Mailing List. Once your application is completed, please wait for our reply at the end of the APPLICATION period. At this point the HmHK Team collects all applications and goes through a curating process before sending out the results via email.
If your application is approved, we will then send you an invitation for REGISTRATION*. This is where you make your payment. This is done through Eventbrite. Once you have finished this, Eventbrite will send you an acknowledgement email to confirm that you have paid. After this point you can sit back and wait for us to send you more information about the event as the date approaches. Dates for these emails will be listed in your registration acknowledgement email so you know when to expect them.
*Please take note of our terminology in order to avoid disappointment:
APPLICATION = you signaling your interest in the event to us. Completing an application does not equate being approved.
REGISTRATION = you paying and confirming your spot as a vendor. Only approved applicants will be directed to this stage. Payment on Eventbrite is the end of the registration process.
are two very clever systems that we use to communicate with everyone and they give us reports on everything including who we emailed, who opened our email, who ignored it, who proceeded to register from the email etc…
There have been a few instances of people missing deadlines and then claiming they never got our emails, when actually we can see from our reports that the email was received and opened. This just makes things a little awkward for everyone, so may we politely request that if a situation arises where there’s a temptation to accuse technology of failing, please just take the honest route instead. We always do our best to be honest, straightforward and respectful to our faithful vendors, and greatly appreciate your reciprocation.
If you are still unsure about the application process or have any other questions, please check out our FAQ section for vendors before emailing us.
