Seniors Expo makes welcome return to Bundaberg

Seniors Forum and Expo
The 2021 Seniors Expo will have a wealth of information for Bundaberg Region senior residents

Time is running short for businesses and organisations to secure their spots for the 2021 Seniors Expo in Bundaberg on March 23.

The expo is the perfect opportunity for businesses, organisations, not-for-profit groups, and government agencies to showcase the services and products they provide for Bundaberg Region senior residents, but stallholders must be registered by March 12.

More than 500 people attended the 2019 expo and organisers are confident of another good turn-out for this year’s event at the Bundaberg Multiplex Convention Centre following the cancellation of last year’s expo due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Council’s portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracey McPhee said the expo would provide valuable information regarding a broad range of seniors’ activities, programs, groups, clubs, and services.

“The 2021 Seniors Expo is a great day for seniors to collect information, connect with friends, participate in events and is accessible to and inclusive of all senior residents” Cr McPhee said.

“Stallholders on site this year encompass a wide range of services and products of interest to senior residents including representatives of the health, well-being, and travel industries and the Queensland Police Service.

“Centrelink officers will also be present to help participants who are seeking information regarding retirement options, financial advice, and related matters.”

The expo is open from 9am to 1pm on the day and a free morning tea is available for all attendees, with barista coffee also available for $5 per cup.

Stallholders can register by visiting trybooking.com/BOHMS.

The 2021 Seniors Expo is an initiative of Bundaberg Regional Council Community Development in partnership with RSL Queensland, Bundaberg RSL Sub Branch, Bundaberg and District Neighbourhood Centre, Australian Red Cross, U3A Bundaberg, Relationships Australia, Bolton Clarke, Department of Transport and Main Roads and AIM Hearing.
