HIWC Charity Bazaar will take place on the Starlake Hanoi development site. We recommend coming by taxi, as parking space for cars and motorbikes is limited.
You can find the location on Google Maps: HIWC 27t Annual Charity Bazaar
We warmly invite sponsorship from local and international companies, large and small businesses and private individuals. The HIWC bazaar is an unbeatable opportunity to give back to the community while providing a great opportunity for businesses who want to raise their public profile and increase brand awareness. Please consider including sponsorship of HIWC’s Annual Charity Bazaar in your annual Corporate Social Responsibility plan.
We offer a rewarding package for our sponsors. Platinum, Pink Lotus and Diamond cash sponsors may set up a promotional booth in a prime location at the event, have their logos displayed prominently on our publicity materials, including posters and corporate banner on the Main Stage, and be recognised on our website, including on the Moving to Hanoi page. Platinum and Pink Lotus sponsors will appear on this year’s tickets.
For more details of our 2019 sponsorship options including in-kind donations of goods or services to our “Silent Auction”, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A number of TV stations typically cover our bazaar and interview Pink Lotus sponsors. In the past, these segments were aired on prime time TV one week before the bazaar. The Word and Hanoi Grapevine also have featured our event. HIWC places additional features in Vietnamese online media. We translate our posters and press releases into Vietnamese, Japanese, Korean and French.

Register for a Table
Country and Community Tables
Our international food fair is one of the most popular features of our bazaar. We greatly value the support of embassies and missions and their communities in Hanoi who each year supply the delicious and authentic cuisine of their home countries. We are grateful to all countries and communities who support us. We know everyone gives up their time and makes a big effort.
To participate in this year’s bazaar, embassies, missions and communities should please email email@example.com for more information.
Important: Please Note
Because our bazaar is a charity fundraiser, we ask all Country and Community Table participants to buy tickets.
Restaurants may only participate as part of a Country and Community Table under the auspices of an embassy. As this is a charity event, all profits must be donated to HIWC.
As in previous years, we are giving priority to HIWC Community Aid Committee (CAC) partner organisations 2019/2020 who want to participate in the Bazaar. We will provide one table each and four adult tickets free of charge to each HIWC partner organisation. Additional tables are available for a small fee. Partner organisations must apply by the deadline to be included in advertisements. Tables will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
Unallocated tables and tickets may be purchased by other non-CAC funded charities or social enterprises based in Vietnam. Organisations should apply by the deadline to be advertised, and places will be drawn by lottery.
For more information and to apply for a Charity Table please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important: Please Note
Because our Bazaar is a charity fundraiser, we ask all Charity Table participants to buy tickets, except our project partners for whom we will provide up to four free tickets. Charity Tables may not sell hot food but may sell coffee or other hot and cold drinks, snack food and packed items such as biscuits.
We are inviting applications from commercial vendors selling goods and/or services, but not food. There will be two commercial table (stall) areas this year – small stall units for smaller businesses and larger stalls for bigger commercial entities. In selecting applicants, we will be looking to create an exciting and varied shopping experience for the public. To participate as a commercial vendor or for more information, including our pricing and ticket policy please email email@example.com.

We welcome the participation of international schools and kindergartens in our bazaar. There are several ways to take part:
- By offering cash or in-kind sponsorship (See Sponsorship details).
