... be a part of something
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
to view full photos and article.
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
"Our best show in Canada, even over
Brantford which has been the best for long time" - Tip Top
"We're still flooded with calls because of the show" -
Legault Decorating two weeks later.
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.

limited to... Beauty & Cosmetics, Bridal & Prom Fashions,

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 :)
Exhibitor Spaces are $600 per booth. Included is a 10' x 10'
space, with black and white backdrops and side rails, one skirted 6'
