The Over 50’s Lifestyle Expo 2017 is nearly here. Are you ready?
The Over 50’s Lifestyle Expo, formerly known as the Seniors Expo, has had a facelift to accommodate an increase in the increasing number of people attending in the 50 – 60 years age bracket. Most people in this age bracket are still working or very active in their community and felt that the expo was targeting an older age bracket.
Well, this is true it does target the age bracket of people aged 60 plus and there are lots of exhibitors showcasing services and products for this age range but they are also there showcasing lifestyle options for the middle-aged too.
The Over 50’s lifestyle Expo brings together around 80 exhibitors derived from business, government departments and community organisations. On display will be travel options, accommodation, transport, legal, health services, community connections and a whole lot more. Attending the Expo gives you the opportunity to find out what is available and how you can access the different services and businesses suited to you. It allows you to plan for the future while living in the present plus gives the opportunity to take advantage of any special offers available on the day.
As part of the country theme for this year, exhibitors will be competing in our scarecrow competition. They have been asked to create a scarecrow and have it on display as part of their exhibition site and those visiting the expo will vote for their favourite.
We are also asking the general public including local schools, community groups and individuals to enter in their own competition to try and claim the title of Best Scarecrow on the Fraser Coast. So come on everyone, get your old clothes and a bit of straw to make your scarecrow creation.
Why not make a whole day of it by visiting the ‘Travel Managers – ‘ Ian Long & Shani Driver’ Entertainment Marquee to enjoy both our local entertainment and our special guests from Gympie – Clarrie & Dorrie. Both are of Tamworth fame and will be performing in the morning and afternoon and will fit right in with our country theme. Outside there will be displays and demonstrations and a talk from one of our sponsors, Latitude 25, about their new development coming to the bay. If you are a traveller and own an RV then this proposition might be for you.
There will be prizes galore available throughout the day with many of the exhibitors having raffles at their individual sites. There will also be a major raffle running thanks to the support of Steve from Atkinson’s Specialist Shuttles. Attendees can grab a ticket at the expo for a chance to win one of 3 prizes;
- A return Trip to Brisbane for two;
- Return trip to Brisbane for one; and
- A $100.00 petrol voucher
One last prize will be on offer at the Over 50’s Lifestyle Expo as Travel Managers’ Ian Long, in conjunction with Royal Caribbean International Cruises, will be offering a chance to win a seven nights South Pacific cruise on the Explorer of the Seas cruise ship. The cruise is planned to leave from Sydney in March 2018 and you will need to visit Ian at the Travel Managers site to gain entry into the draw. Some conditions do apply to this entry so why not visit their site to talk travel with ‘Travel Managers – Ian Long & Shani Driver’.
Throw delicious food and door to door transport in to the mix with only a $2.00 entry fee – why would you miss it!
