Purchase Vendor Membership

If you are a current or past HSCG member or have registered for the HSCG website, PLEASE LOG IN BEFORE PURCHASING YOUR MEMBERSHIP.

Vendor Memberships in the HSCG are for those businesses that sell products or services to handcrafted soap and cosmetic makers. Vendor Membership is in the name of the business (rather than an individual). Representatives of Vendor Member businesses may not hold office (Board of Director or President) as the membership is in the business name, not that of an individual.

There are three tiers of Vendor Membership. Suppliers may choose the level that is most fitting for their personal goals and business model. Additional information about the various membership benefits for Vendor Membershipscan be found on the Member Benefits Chart and Vendor Benefits pages.

Vendor Tier 3 Membership $500

Vendor Tier 3 benefits are designed for businesses working on a smaller budget but who still want to gain exposure to soap and cosmetic makers and support the activities of the HSCG.

Vendor Tier 2 Membership $1,500

Vendor Tier 2 benefits are designed to provide the HSCG products and services most often purchased by vendors as a single, all-inclusive package, but at a smaller level. Tier 2 Vendor Membership includes an ad in the Conference Program book and a discount on Exhibitor Space at the Conference.

Vendor Tier 1 Membership $3,000

Vendor Tier 1 membership is designed to provide the HSCG products and services most often purchased by larger vendors as a single, all-inclusive package. For example, Tier 1 Vendor Membership includes an Exhibitor Table and a Sponsorship Banner at the HSCG Conference.
