WHY PARTICIPATE IN DYZAJN MARKET?
We are the most popular exclusive sales event for a wide range of designers, artists, authors, creators... simply people who make all things beautiful, original and fine. We are also here for those who know how to make great food or drinks.
We are a traditional event with a 9th-year history held seasonally – spring, summer, holiday, autumn, and winter. We have excellent PR publicity, through our social sites, as well as our partners, bloggers, social media influencers and public media. Even though we are an event with free admission, Dyzajn market always has a rich cultural program too – theatre not only for children, concerts, DJs, author readings, kid zone, exhibitions, workshops and fashion shows.
The team behind Dyzajn market is creative, always coming up with new ideas that make it possible for you, creators, to increase your visibility and move your creation to the next level.
We have a strong Facebook page and event, thousands of Instagram followers, as well as various media outcomes. Thanks to that, our participants, the site and the team, the attendance throughout the weekend is about 20,000 visitors.
Saturday and Sunday
10 AM to 7 PM (both days)
Václav Havel square, Prague 1

WHAT SORT OF SPACE DO WE OFFER?
• We will reserve a space for you at the event. This means an empty space of certain dimensions, which doesn’t have any borders, where your products must fit with all your equipment and yourself (for instance, the XS spot will only fit one person).
• The number of spots is limited. If there is a higher number of applicants, we will select designers who will make the offer on our event as varied as possible. It can be an advantage for you to select more options in your application (under your preferred type of spot), where you would be able to display your products.
• All the spots are covered. The XS, S and M spots are under our tents or in the underpass of the New Scene of the theatre. The L spots are either covered by the pillars of the New Scene, your own white tent or a tent you rent from us.
• Spots inside: You may also pick the option of “your own design display” inside the Operations Building B of the National Theatre, which is part of the event. An advantage of this place is the option to install your designs on the day before the event.
• The ceiling height under the tent is 1.9 m, under the building it is 3 m. If your display is taller than 1.9 m, let us know in a note in your application. That will be our only guide in choosing a place for your stand.
• After selecting our designers, we start working on the placement of their stands on the square. If you have some requirements regarding your stand, e.g. you want to be next to your friend/partner creator, please let us know in a note in your application. If it’s at all possible, we will be happy to do it. However, we won’t be able to help you at a later date.
• Two to three designers can share one spot. If you don’t need all of your chosen space, you may share with another designer (with an extra fee of 600 CZK per artist). Please write the e-mail and name of the brand you want to share the spot with. We will get in touch with the designers and ask them to register, too. We do not allow you to offer other designer's products under your brand.
• You will find the prices in the application form by the different options for spots.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU NEED?
• We can lend you tables of certain sizes or a stand. You will find detailed information of the equipment we can rent you in the registration form.
• This means it is up to you to bring all the equipment to sell and display your products – shelves, chairs, lights, your stools or stands. It is a good idea to measure everything ahead of time, just so you know that your entire set-up, you and your products fit in your space. Banners and other promotional materials may also be part of your rented space. However, you may not place them outside your stall, in the shared space of the event.
• Extension cords: If you need to plug in to a power source at the event, bring your own extension cords, either on reels or sufficiently long, as well as socket adapters or power strips (socket type E/F/C).
• Spotlights, halogen lighting, electric kettles, coffee makers, electric heaters etc. are not allowed. Power offtake (mainly used for lighting) is only up to 50 W per spot (doesn’t apply to food and drink stands, where we agree case by case).
FOOD AND BEVERAGE STANDS
Please, give us a list of snacks you want to offer in your application. The number of stalls with snacks is limited, and so we try to avoid competition in their range of goods. It is possible we will have to impose ourselves in your menu and adjust it a little. If you think some items on your list are indispensable, please tell us in a note in your application.
Since Prague introduced a new obligation for events to only sell food and drinks in returnable and washable containers; with single-use biodegradable dishes for food also being an option, it is necessary that you also manage this aspect for your sales at the event. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide you with this equipment, and the place of the event has no facilities to wash dishes.
We collect a refundable deposit of 1500 CZK from our snacks salespeople, payable in cash in the morning during registration. We will return your deposit after the event, when we have checked that your spot is completely alright – clean, without stains. Sometimes, when the weather is bad, we cannot do that on the same day, but don’t worry, you won’t lose your deposit.
Please, tidy your spot after yourself. It is always a spot of up to 3x5 m, so it should only take a few minutes. Part of the price for your spot is accepting 15 vouchers for 100 CZK each, which our organization team and some VIPs will exchange for refreshments during the event. We will make the vouchers ourselves, please accept them as payment and inform your staff, too.
Don’t forget to write your invoicing data (including your firm ID). We will not check your trade license and tax ID, we leave this responsibility up to you. We believe that you know what you need to be able to sell your products. We will send you electronic invoices. We are a VAT payer.
A FEW FINAL TIPS
• Do not underestimate your pictures, we use them to select our designers. For your application, you should choose pictures that represent you well. You should absolutely avoid pictures that are black and white, collages, framed photos and pictures with your logo on them. Don’t send us your brand logo either. Photos showing other products of commercial brands from shops labelled with multinational chain brands are also unsuitable.
• Do not apply if you want to participate in a similar event in Prague during the same dates as Dyzajn market Winter. Basing perfect PR (event promotion) is not an easy task. It is especially difficult, if a single designer takes part in a different event at the same time, in the same city. Our view is that this is not good for the customers, for the designers, nor for the organizers. Customers typically go to all the events and they see the same things everywhere. Designers have to pay 2 participation fees and sales revenue unfortunately is not doubled. And we, organizers, especially appreciate those of you who simply pick one event.
So we ask for your cooperation: if you decide to try a different event, it’s fine. We will welcome you to another edition. We also believe that visitors will appreciate this, because events will be more diverse, as well as organizers, who will be able support each other’s turnout.
From 1/3/2017 the Czech Republic introduced an obligation for entrepreneurs in retail and wholesale, including the sale in stands and in marketplaces, to use electronic records of sales (the EET), regardless of whether this is your main or other business activity (see the guidance note on the application of the legislation in Czech). If you have any doubts on whether your sales should be registered, ask your local tax office to issue a decision on the assessment of the determination of the recorded sale.
If you send this application form, you give us your consent to obtain, publish and use any images or audio-visual recordings of you or your stand, products or performance to promote future events.
The application is binding. If the seller cancels their participation at Dyzajn market any time after submitting their application or the event is cancelled due to a force majeure event, the seller is not entitled to a refund. If the fee has not yet been paid, it will be necessary to pay it at any time on our request.
