Bonner Senior’s Expo goes online

The annual Bonner Senior’s Expo has gone online for 2020, with the Virtual Bonner Senior’s Expo now live.

Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta MP said every year he loved putting on the Bonner Senior’s Expo to meet with constituents and put on a fun and informative day.

“Unfortunately, with the coronavirus pandemic, it was important we didn’t put vulnerable people at risk with large gatherings, so for 2020 we’ve put together this Virtual Senior’s Expo,” Mr Vasta said.

“Last year’s Seniors Expo was a huge success despite my being in New York at the UN General Assembly.

“We had more than 500 people through the door with a range of exhibitors and fantastic guest speakers at the Wynnum Manly Leagues Club, who always provide great hospitality.”

Mr Vasta said the Virtual Bonner Senior’s Expo was live on his website where attendees could access links to all the stallholders.

“We still have some great raffle prizes donated by our generous sponsors, so head to my website where Bonner’s Seniors can explore all the local services to support them and enter the raffle draw,” Mr Vasta said.

“From local community groups to aged care support services, there’s plenty to check out online.

“I hope next year we will be able to come together again for the Bonner Seniors’ Expo to enjoy hearing from our guest speakers, have a chat and have a delicious morning tea, but for now, this is a great way to stay connected and also keep everyone safe.”

Bonner Senior’s Expo bigger and better than ever

The third annual Bonner Senior’s Expo is set to bigger and better than ever with exhibit spaces now completely booked out and hundreds of local seniors expected to attend.

The free Senior’s Expo is on Thursday, October 31 and will include over 50 stallholders from government services and community organisations right through to legal aid and real estate agencies.

Information sessions on issues such as the National Broadband Network rollout to services provided by the Department of Human Services will be held throughout the day.

Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta MP said the annual expo was always a great opportunity for local seniors to have face to face access with the services they use and community groups there to support their needs.

“It is a big day out for all our wonderful seniors to gather information and enjoy a locally sourced morning tea,” Mr Vasta said.

“Even though I will be at the United Nations for this event, I have made sure all the relevant resources will be available to our local seniors just like past events.

“At the end of the day, we’re here to help, we’re here to provide and we’re here to listen to the unique concerns of the seniors in the Bonner electorate – that’s what this expo is all about.”

The Bonner Senior’s Expo will be held from 9am to 1pm on Thursday, October 31 at the Wynnum Manly Leagues Club.
