If you are a vendor you can talk about and promote your products before, during and after an event. This platform is only about selling and showing at market events. It is for vendors, shoppers and venue administrators.
If you are interested in a specific event, don't wait for others to start a conversation. Go ahead. Fire it up and link it through other social media sites.
Your vendor platform goes to registered members attending events. Further, between events, you can place within your page onsite promotions--3 pictures, copy and links--back to your email and site free.
You can also form groups that are both open and closed to the public and, as members post more event info, you can see dig out which events might be for you.
