Sponsorship Information


Ideas for Life Senior Expo 2016 was a huge success and planning is underway for the 2017 event. Last year’s success was achieved in large part to our sponsors. Now we are looking for sponsors to pledge their support to “Ideas for Life” 2017.

The Expo committee is very excited about this year’s theme: “Bloom, Learn, Grow”.

The expo will highlight activities and services right here in our back yard for seniors and their families that are informative and helpful. As in past years, proceeds from the expo will go to support local seniorserving organizations.

Enclosed is the information about sponsorship opportunities for Ideas for Life Senior Expo 2017 that will be held Wednesday, May 17, 2017 at the Grand Traverse Civic Center (1213 W Civic Center Rd). This will be our 16th Annual Senior Expo.

This Expo will draw caregivers, their families and seniors from the greater Grand Traverse region. It will also provide exhibitors and sponsors with the exclusive opportunity to showcase your products and services to a target market.

If you are interested in sponsorship of the Senior Expo 2017, or if you have any questions, please contact me at (231) 409-4444. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
