TORONTO – The modern gentleman finally has a show to call his own. The Gentlemen’s Expo (TGE) () is coming to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on November 22nd – 24th and will combine a conference and consumer show for both men, and the women in their lives.
TGE expects to draw over 20,000 attendees and will be the must attend event of the year, providing a one of a kind experience with 10 pavilions that will feature celebrity guests, special events and the brands that matter most to guys.
“There isn’t a show out there that offers something of relevance to the modern gentleman… so we decided to create one” - Luca del Rosso, Co Founder of TGE.
Speakers confirmed for the weekend thus far, include: W. Brett Wilson, Bruce Croxon and Jim Treliving from CBC’s hit show Dragons Den, the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon ‘Bones’ Jones, and the man behind the success of the UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre, Firas Zahabi. Guests will have an opportunity to see these celebs throughout the weekend within the various pavilions featured at the show.
Other speakers you can expect to see are: Alan Cross, celebrity chefs Rob Rainford and Chuck Hughes, and the star of History Channel’s hit show Restoration Garage, David Grainger. TGE will be hosted by Todd Shapiro.
Guests will have an opportunity to wet their pallet, heighten their taste buds and snag some great deals from participating brands like: Canadian Club, NewEgg.ca, Presidents Choice Black Label, It’s Just Lunch, Dove Men’s + Care, GotStyle, and tons more.
“Basically, we are giving people an opportunity to walk through the pages of their favourite magazine and physically experience the content” - Settimio Coscarella, Co Founder of TGE.
One of the most unique features of The Gentlemen’s Expo is that $5.00 of every ticket sold will be donated to Movember Canada with a goal of raising over $100,000 to support Prostate Cancer research and men’s mental health initiatives. This will culminate in their attempt to break the World Record for having the largest gathering of men with a moustache on Sunday, November 24th.
Tickets range between $30 for a day pass and $60 for a weekend pass, and can be purchased online at www.gentlemensexpo.com.
