2019 Holiday Gift Market
Sponsor Program

The Women’s Entrepreneur Society of Corpus Christi Gift Markets are our capstone events, held twice annually in Corpus Christi, Texas. These markets showcase special collections of handmade, designed and curated goods, all from local, women-owned shops throughout the area. As a sponsor, you will be helping to create a vibrant, collaborative entrepreneurial community, while supporting the advancement of women-run businesses at all levels of their career. Our aim is to keep talent in the Coastal Bend by providing education, collaboration, support, and resources to women entrepreneurs, and these markets are one of many ways in which we are able to achieve this goal.

WES:CC Markets draw crowds of over 500 attendees, all interested in supporting local entrepreneurs in our area. We have had 30+ vendors at previous events and hope to increase this number to 40-50, in order to give more members the opportunity to showcase their businesses. Our attendees come out in inclement weather; they donate to our charity partners; they spend their money on food and drinks at the host venues;  and they purchase thousands of dollars in products from our vendors year over year. Our social media marketing, including Facebook events, have a reach of over 37,000 locals, and our most recent Spring Gift Market had over 3500 responses of either “Interested or Going.”

WES:CC is also dedicated to assisting other local organizations that help advocate for women and children within the Coastal Bend. For each market, a local 501 (c)(3) non-profit is selected with 100% of donations collected going to help this organization.  

Our 2019 Holiday Gift Market will be held on Sunday, Dec. 9, 2019 from 2pm–6pm at The Ortiz Center.
