It was incredibly apparent that women were prepared to shop, the majority were carrying multiple bags and our sales at this event surpassed past year's sales. We found the Health & Wellness section to be full of people for the majority of the weekend…

Shawna Tarasoff

Wow what a wonderful show it was for us, we had hundreds of women stop by and get to know us. The best thing was that our phones were ringing off the hook on Monday morning when our clinic opened – a great return on our investment. We have already pre-booked our booth for next year!
