The event will have a senior-friendly theme of springtime. Having one of the largest concentrations of seniors in Cook County, Maine Township is a natural locale for an exciting Expo such as this. Exhibitors should note that interactive displays are very popular so we encourage you to provide product demonstrations, health screenings, or other beneficial services to attendees. If you are able to provide any service, please inform us so we can make the appropriate indications in Expo materials.

Exhibit spaces are limited to 75 and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Spaces include an 8′ skirted table, 2 chairs and standard 110v electrical connection upon request. Spaces are available for $300 for corporations, $250 for non-profit organizations and for Golf Mill Shopping Center tenants. Exhibit hours are 9 AM to 1 PM. The Expo will be publicized in all the local news media and headlined in large mailings as well as featured in Mainely News, the township newsletter with 55,000 household circulation.
