Early registration for Feb. 8 Lifestyles EXPO
Early bird registration is now open for the 26th Annual Alabama Lifestyles EXPO, scheduled Feb. 8 at Caribe Resort in Orange Beach.
The free event annually attracts more than 3,700 mostly Snowbird attendees, and exhibitor slots often are filled before the event.
“At the current rate of exhibitor registrations, we may run out of exhibitor space by mid-November,’’ said EXPO coordinator Bill Meadows. “We suggest registering now and making a payment later.’’
Payments postmarked before Dec. 18 will receive an early bird discount, and full refunds will be granted though Jan. 15, 2018.
Registration is $210 (Early Bird) thru Dec.18, $240 thru Jan.15, and $260 after Jan.15.
EXPO Exhibitors receive a complimentary listing on the EXPO website (16,000 unique visitors) and a mailing list of attendees.
“If you have never participated in an effort to attract winter visitors take note that, they will visit communities traveling through and from the Gulf Coast,’’ Meadows said. “They also take mini-trips. Last year, I met a couple who stayed 28 days in a north Alabama city and visited surrounding areas. Winter visitors are great candidates for relocation. In 2016, a United Van Lines survey showed that Alabama had a 6.4% gain in people moving to Alabama for retirement.’’
