Senior Expo

Dear past Senior Expo Exhibitor & Attendees:

To say the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed all aspects of our community is an understatement.  As we have navigated the challenges of serving the older adults within the confines of the pandemic, we have had to significantly alter service delivery to safeguard the older adults in our nation. Inviting over 120 exhibitors to mingle with over 1500 guests is not a responsible, safe, or ethical decision. Given the current guidelines and restrictions, your safety and the safety of our attendees is our top priority; we will not be hosting the 2020 Senior Expo this fall. To ensure the safety and wellbeing of the older adults we serve, and the exhibitors who may provide services to them, we have reviewed alternative options and may potentially host smaller events to increase access to the flu vaccine in October. Thank you for your support of the Senior Expo in years past. We hope to resume the event in 2021.

Senior Expo Update:

We made this decision in early spring, based on the prevailing concerns about COVID-19 at the time, to cancel our Senior Expo for October 2021.  When the COVID-19 pandemic caused us to change the way we provide services to older adults, we canceled the 2020 Senior Expo to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our participants, vendors and staff. The hope was to be able to resume this fall, however, without the advantage of knowing what future guidelines and concerns will be, we were unable to confidently commit and begin planning for such a large public event.

Please stay in touch with us to find out what plans we have for a 2022 Senior Expo or alternative events. Check back on this Web page or call 269-373-5173, or Email .
