BUZZ
The Gala Expo 2009 was the first annual event of its kind bringing Atlantic Canadian fiances and grads under one roof. Over 800 people waited in line prior to the gown sale while watching great entertainment on stage and big screens. The event made front page headlines of the Times Transcript.

BACKGROUND - READY TO GO
In preparation to this event, we've organized and participated in over fourty shows through the last ten years. We've had small venue pilot gown sale events in both Moncton and Halifax, of which each had over three hundred and five hundred people waiting before the doors even opened. Charitable funds raised at these events were close to $1000. This year, we've teamed up with Lissa Mallais, IWK Health Foundation's Community Giving Officer of New Brunswick. $6000 was raised for non-profit organizations through the first Gala Expo, $3200 of which was raised for the IWK.

TESTIMONIALS OF THE FIRST GALA EXPO

OPPORTUNITY
Exhibitors are drawn from across Atlantic Canada. If your business is within the wedding, prom or special occasions industry, this show is a very cost effective marketing tool that will give you a lot of target specific exposure. This is your chance to have hundreds and perhaps thousands of immediate prospects presented to you in one day. It's rare to have such a promotional opportunity at such a low cost. Brides and Grads at the Gala Expo are guaranteed spenders, and you can influence all of their buying decisions in short period of time.

MEDIA
Advertizing and Promotions for last year's Gala Expo commenced three months prior through several other trade shows and community events, five billboards, radio ads and interviews, magazines, various local publications including newspaper, posters, auto banners, many websites, facebook and other network applications, and mailings. Local media was also present at the Gala Expo, and there was follow up promotions and media through two weeks after the show through newspaper and radio.  The Gala Expo promotes all year around. Anticipation has begun through the summer, and heavy media will take into effect in the fall. Specific target marketing are focused towards grads, brides and grooms throughout Atlantic Canada. However, some of the show features and incentives have mass appeal, and therefore, have used mass media. Keep an eye out on the billboards January featuring local models you may know :)
