Sponsorship Information


Ideas for Life Senior Expo 2017 was a huge success and planning is underway for the 2018 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” 2018.

The Expo committee is very excited about this year’s theme: “Trick or Treat: Treat yourself and avoid
being tricked”.

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
senior-serving organizations.

Enclosed is the information about sponsorship opportunities for Ideas for Life Senior Expo 2018 that will be held Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center (1213 W. Civic Center Drive). This will be our 17th 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 2018, or if you have any questions, please contact me at (231) 409-4444. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
