Pitch Perfect 2018


Market Place, the operator of the Belfast Christmas Market, has launched their annual Pitch Perfect competition, offering winners a FREE chalet at this year’s  Market and business support worth thousands of pounds.

Now in its fourteenth year, the festive Market, which opens in the grounds of Belfast City Hall on Saturday 17 November attracts over a million visitors each year.  Once again via the Pitch Perfect competition, Market Place is offering sponsorship for up to two local businesses, providing them with an invaluable opportunity to showcase their product to a huge new audience. 

The annual Pitch Perfect competition is open to businesses that have been trading for over six months but for less than two years. 

Market Place Managing Director, Allan Hartwell said:

“The Pitch Perfect competition has proven to be a great way for us to support new local businesses. With such a range of high quality businesses in this region we are delighted to be in a position to offer this kind of support.

“For the winners this is always a steep learning-curve and we are there to support them all the way with practical advice. For previous winners Pitch Perfect has proven to be a great way to fast track their business development and growth.We have no doubt that trading at the Belfast Christmas Market 2018 will provide a very solid foundation for the winners business in the future.”

The competition, which has a simple two-page application process, goes live on Friday 03 August. The deadline for applications is 20 August.
