Reserve your exhibit space now! This year’s Expo will offer an exciting new array of services and activities for seniors and those who care for them. For more than 25 years, Santa Barbara’s Senior Expo has been a premier health fair and services exposition for older adults and caretakers. More than 1,000 seniors attended last year’s Senior Expo. The Expo features free flu shots, fitness testing, more than 100 exhibit booths offering education and information, music, food, volunteer opportunities and activities for seniors, as well as presentations on the latest products and services for local seniors and their caregivers.
We have extended our hours until 1 pm this year and are planning a number of new offerings for exhibitors and attendees. Exhibitors this year will include financial services, residential facilities, travel clubs, health care providers, home care services, government agencies, local nonprofits, and many more. Add to that free parking and just $5 admission, and it’s clear that the Senior Expo is the best ticket in town for Santa Barbara’s seniors and caregivers in our community. Register online or contact Christopher Williams.
Introducing our NEW Senior Volunteer Showcase
The Senior Volunteer Showcase will bring together as many as 100 area organizations that offer a wide range of volunteer programs and other free activities that are available to seniors and their caregivers who attend the Expo each year seeking information about the many services and activities that enrich their lives.
Expo attendees will have an exciting opportunity to learn about the many organizations that need their help all in one place, and to sign up onsite if they wish to get involved. Local community organizations, activities groups and social clubs are also invited to join the showcase as an opportunity to recruit members and involve local seniors.
Showcase participants will each have one representative seated side-by-side along continuous aisles with space for promotional materials and direct interaction with Expo attendees.
