With Christmas coming right around the corner, The Virtual Green Christmas Market was the place for conscious consumers to explore eco-friendly gift ideas that won’t cost the Earth! Many homegrown vendors who have a common goal of supporting sustainable and green living in Singapore were featured during the event. Over the weekend from 27th to 29th November 2020, many have joined us in this free-to-attend Virtual Green Christmas Market that combined the elements of Christmas gifting with sustainable living through various incentives. Here are some key highlights of the event!
For every 2 attendees who attended The Virtual Green Christmas Market, Delegate donated $1 to our pledged charity, Zero Waste SG. Through this platform, Delegate aimed to raise more awareness and funds for Zero Waste SG.
Zero Waste SG is a charity and non-governmental organisation leading the drive towards zero waste in Singapore through education and advocacy. They aim to have a nation where individuals, communities, businesses and organisations value and conserve resources, and embrace zero waste and the circular economy.
Through this event, Delegate has proudly raised $1250 that was donated to Zero Waste SG!
Each virtual hall corresponds to 5 categories of eco-friendly vendors, namely Fashion, Food & Beverage, Home & Gifts, Beauty & Skincare, and Lifestyle.
Users can easily browse through over 40 vendors and access brief descriptions of their services before deciding to visit their individual booths to find out more.
Engagement between vendors and customers
Each participating vendor has a booth where they can put up their branding, resources, and videos in their banners and screens. Their unique promotions and packages can also be found when users scroll down to read the description of their booth.
There is also a Live Chat function where couples can chat instantly with vendors they’re interested in. The Appointments function was not available during the event.
At the Main Stage, users can watch webinars, join workshops, and engage in meaningful discussions with industry professionals to find out how they can live more consciously. Over 28th and 29th November 2020, there were 28 main stage sessions in total, ranging from panel discussions, informative talks and more.

The Virtual Green Christmas Marker was a huge success! Through this unique event that has opened the eyes of both vendors and users, here is a summary and impact in numbers from the event.
With over 2500 visitors across the 3 days, the shift from physical to virtual events is undoubtedly the new future for events in Singapore. 161 lucky winners walked away with over $30,00 worth of prizes, spending on products with 8% worth of cashback with 12% hourly upsized cashback. Through the impact of technology, Delegate aims to be the new events company, redesigning today’s event experiences.
