South Africa’s Retirement Expo returns to the Coca-Cola dome
in Johannesburg from 25-27 October 2013, for a feature-packed exhibition of all
the facets of a well-planned and inspired retirement and what it means to
“Live. Plan. Play.”
This fun-filled and informative expo has captured the
imagination and support of a truly multi-generational audience. Intrigued by
the expo’s concept of putting forward all the tools for “Healthy Ageing,
Perfect Planning and Positive Living,” audience members who range in age from
20-something to 70-plus visit the show to get the inside track on living and
Says Lynn Chamier, general manager of the Retirement Expo,
“It really doesn’t matter how old you are, what your background, culture, creed
or financial status is, the one thing we all have in common is that one day we
will retire and when we do, we want to be in good health, and retire well.”
Catering for the
needs of the audience
To cater to the needs and fulfill the expectations of its
diverse audience, Retirement Expo exhibitors put forward a powerhouse display
of products and services that run the gamut of retirement options. On show are:
retirement planning products; lifestyle, health, financial and other services;
travel destinations and options; home, lifestyle, health, hobbies and fitness
products; anti-ageing and optimal nutrition options; retirement properties and
facilities as well as choice vacations.
Adds Chamier, “The beauty of this show is its ability to
demonstrate how rewarding and satisfying retirement can be. It gives young
people something to look forward, to aspire to and to plan for. It offers those
nearing retirement or currently retired a host of options to expand their
experience and enjoyment of their hard-earned retirement.
“For exhibitors, it gives direct and personal access to an
audience that is curious and motivated, and whose buy-in to retiring well is
assured by virtue of their attendance.”
A happy, fulfilled retirement is the result of planning
based on choices made with the full benefit of all the best available
information. This information is readily available to Retirement Expo visitors
at the show’s free Interactive Workshops, where experts who are at the top of
their game share their experience, knowledge and insights and answer the
audience’s questions on topics that hinge on the art of inspiring good health
and retiring well.
Edu-tainment is a major draw card for Retirement Expo
audiences. The expo’s designated Activity Areas serve to entertain while they
educate visitors on the many fitness activities and hobby options available.
The Retirement Expo also offers marketers sponsorship
opportunities to partner with the expo in a more personal way, one that extends
their reach, increases their brand’s exposure and aligns it more intimately,
powerfully and effectively with the Retirement Expo brand.
