YEA GARDEN EXPO September 24th & 25th 2016

A quick review note regarding the Expo. We thought the Expo was terrific and the countless compliments we have received regarding the quality of the vendors, your preparations and displays is an enormous plaudit for you all and made the EXPO what it became…..a success. The speaker program was well attended and again you should be proud of your contribution to the weekend. The feedback we are getting from the paying public has been overwhelmingly complimentary and it appears providing free parking , free face painting and free pony rides was a real drawcard for families. Obviously there where a few small & minor hiccups and aspects we will need to address for next year.

For your information the number of paying public attendees was just over 1500 which was terrific and clearly our extensive marketing program worked albiet there are a few more ideas to be added to next marketing program. This high level of attendance from many who travelled significant distances from Melbourne and beyond and from northern Victoria indicates there is now no doubt an expo of this nature has a real role to play for gardeners and vendors and as several pointed out to us at the weekend this could quickly become the major gardening expo north of Melbourne.

While we have not yet set a date for next year’s Expo as it will depend on when the AFL grand final is finally determined. We will have the Expo either the week before(as we did this year) or the week after if the AFL decide to scrap the extra week break and consequently bring the final forward.

If you have any queries /specific requirements etc. please do not hesitate to contact me via email or my mobile number is 0438 119 429. We want you to have a profitable and successful outcome and this event becomes a “must attend” on your calendar and of the gardening public
