For those over 50 looking for a little extra inspiration on ways to enhance their lives, should plan to visit a new expo for retirees and the young at heart alike.
Presented by the SEASONS Network, the SEASONS 50+ Expo will be held at Port Panthers on Saturday, 22 October featuring a unique and interactive variety of exhibitors to help those over 50 on ways to enhance their lives.
With a focus on health, wellness and travel, attendees can expect to get up close and personal with up to 50 local and national businesses, dedicated to supporting retirees to get more informed and be inspired to plan their next adventure.
Expo Event Manager Elyce Bichel said, “The event is unique to the region, offering the participating businesses the chance to connect with Australia’s fastest growing age demographic and with the highest disposable income; whilst providing a convenient way for the over 50’s to learn more about the services available in their local community.”
“We understand Baby Boomers and retirees are more discerning than ever before and crave new and exciting experiences that allow them to enhance or reinvent their lives.”
“The Expo is the perfect event for those who may be currently transitioning or planning retirement and looking for some creative ways to enjoy the next stage of their lives,” Ms Bichel said.
