Comments from Exhibitors at 55 Plus Active Living Celebration 2010!

I was very impressed with the event and was glad to be a part of it. For me, it was an opportunity to showcase our service to both the general public and individual retirement residences and home care companies (our biggest clients). I made a list of all the companies I wanted to meet ahead of the show and the event gave me the opportunity to network in one place. I have already decided I would like to participate next year. - Bob Hanley, President Healing Hands Elder Care Massage

Very worthwhile and enjoyable! - Rosalind Scott Executive Director Better Business Bureau

We had a great time and in fact booked two client appointments right at the show with many more anticipated as we follow up with folks. The organization was great and the biggest improvement was that we had more local folks attending and the traffic flow was more evened out compared to 2009. We will definitely be back in 2011 ! - Charles ( Chuck ) Palmer Investors Group

Thanks so much for getting us in at the last minute.( Organization and management of the event – great) We found it very beneficial and even saw two clients come directly to our office on the same day as the event. Our placement ( by the coat check) was perfect. Everyone that stopped by was pleased to have the information, asked questions and was interested to know more about our services. We felt it very worthwhile being there, would definitely come back next year and would love to have the same location. If your organization ever decides to do something in the Lower Mainland please do let us know. - Sarah Curtiss Occupational Health Services Travel Medicine and Vaccination Centre

This was the best show in the four years that we have been participating!! It seemed very well organized and well attended. We will be participating next year and are requesting a double booth. Thanks so much for a job well done. - Kathy Ajas Leasing Manager Ross Place Retirement Residence

We are a non profit agency with limited human resources and funding dollars for marketing. The event is very important to us because it allows us to reach many seniors in one day with little cost. We saw a large number of people at our booth. We were able to give free directories and advice to those who were looking for solutions to their situations. We recruited 4 new volunteers for our programs. We also heard positive feedback about the day from people who were attending for the first time. I felt the event was extremely well managed. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to participate and look forward to next year. - Jane Sheaff, Executive Director, Seniors Serving Seniors

Thank you for the opportunity of participating in this show. It was successful for us and we would certainly consider doing it again next year. I was amazed at the number of visitors to the show, especially that many of them were from up-island. You did a great job - everything was very well organized and I have no suggestions for improvement. - Irm Houle, Vancouver island Trails Information Society

The event was great and we were very pleased with our location. It was indeed worth the time and expense. The event appeared to be very well managed with no glitches upon arrival and everything ran seamlessly. The visitors were definitely our demographic and we generated a lot of leads and interest in Somerset House, Douglas House and Beechwood in Sidney. We are definitely in for next year. - Lynn Larsen, Community Relations Manager, Amica at Somerset House

Thanks for your big part in getting us all together last Friday! It seemed very successful for us in that we became a real presence to those attending and our Driving Miss Daisy services should be getting well known ‘out there’ soon. I found the networking with others that were exhibiting valuable as well. The event seemed very well managed and organized Thanks so much for getting us into our marvellous spot! - Heather & Susan, Driving Miss Daisy

I was very pleased with the Celebration. Being a new business it was a great opportunity for me to meet people in the business and also the seniors of course. I would definitely go in next year. Event Organization did a great job, you were most efficient and the volunteers from Senior Living Magazine were also a great help. Thank you for all your kind assistance. -  Agnes, Catch The Moments

I wanted to let you and everyone at Senior Living know what a great time we had at the Silver Threads booth on Friday. The booth was always busy and everyone was in a good mood. I think it was a very good use of our time and money. Thank you so much for inviting us to once again join in the experience - Edie Copland, Executive Director, Silver Threads Service
