Ideas for Life Senior Expo - Food Sponsor Information

Ideas for Life Senior Expo 2019 was an overwhelming success with over 1,600 attendees! We are planning for an even bigger, better and more fun expo this year. This year’s theme is “20/20 enVISION Your Future!” What does your organization SEE when it looks toward the future? Where was your organization in 2000, today in 2020 and where is it going in 20 more years? How will changing aging trends affect your organization and how will you respond? Join us as a sponsor and showcase your organization’s vision for the future!

Expo proceeds support the BASA Cares Grant Program and support for area seniors. Each year, our organization gives $1,000 each to ten organizations in our community that support older adults. We also allocate $15,000 to assist seniors’ unmet needs, everything from heating assistance to dental care. Help us support area seniors by becoming an exhibitor today.
This expo will draw caregivers, their families and older adults from the greater Grand Traverse region looking for businesses and organizations just like yours. It will also provide you with the exclusive opportunity to display your products and services to a target market.

Our “Taste of Traverse” strolling lunch is a popular attraction for those attending the expo. In addition to extra foot traffic at the booth, special parking passes, live emcee announcements throughout the event, food sponsors can look forward to tons of advertising, carpeted booths and free Wifi. At the 2020 expo, we will be focusing on healthy foods with vision benefits. For full food sponsor benefits, please see below.

In order to take advantage of the full range of sponsor benefits, please complete the sponsor and exhibitor agreement by March 17, 2020. If you have any questions, please contact the Food Sponsorship Chairperson, Cynthia McGarry at 231-645-7685 or cynthia.mcgarry@brightstarcare.com.
