Did you wake up this morning and wonder "Damn, how can I be more interesting?" Well the wonderful folks at the Gentlemen's Expo (TGE) have got you covered. Carrying the underlying theme to help people "be more interesting" (seriously, try out their hash tag #bemoreinteresting), the first ever Gentlemen's Expo (@GentlemensExpo) will be taking place at the Metro Convention Center, November 22-24, 2013.
So instead of telling you what you can expect during the this manly expo, I'll do you one better and give you 6 reasons why you should go.
TGE understands that no man is ever the same so they made sure that there was something for everyone. Neatly arranged into 10 interest oriented pavilions, here is some of what to look out for:
"Eat drink and be Manly"- I'd like to think this pavilion was inspired by my blog name, but does it matter what it's named after? Awesome is awesome. Think gourmet food trucks, cooking demos, mixology sessions, whiskey/wine/beer experts teaching their craft, and much more. As a bonus? Each Gentlemen's Expo ticket includes an "Eat, Drink, and Be Manly Passport" good for 6 beer, wine, or spirit samples.
"Man on the Move"- This pavilion will be the garage junkie's paradise. Equipped with exhibitors including Aston Martin, Rolls Royce, Lamborgini, and Bentley, keep up with all things innovative about cars, bikes, and scooters, for the modern man.
"The Working Man" This is for those who are too busy with your career to attend the Gentlemen's Expo. Stop by the Working Man pavilion to learn how you can get an edge in the working world. Perhaps a chat with career and investment specialists will spark some entrepreneurial inspiration?
"Tech Man 2.0"- If gadgets are your best friend, then this pavilion is for you. From TVs to smart phones, comb the many exhibitor that will be happy to show you the latest and greatest in the technology universe.
"The Cultured Man"- got a hobby? It's probably here. Gaming, gambling, music, art, literature, and more.
Reason #2 You'll have a cool Facebook picture with someone famous.
All weekend, different celebrity personnel will be taking center stage to discus what they know best. Mingle with Jim, Bruce, or Brett from Dragons Den, PhD Relationship/Sex specialist and PlayboyTV host Dr. Jess, current lightweight UFC champion Jon "Bones" Jones, or how about one of many celebrity chefs including Chuck Hugh's?
Reason #3: $5 to every ticket sale goes to supporting November Canada
Have an awesome weekend AND support prostate cancer? That's a double win.
Reason #4:You can be a part of or witness a Guinness World Record in the making.
The largest gathering of men with moustaches. Be there.
Reason #5: A free trip to the barber shop
Get the Dove Men + Care grooming experience with a free shave from their mobile barbershop. Growing for Movember? No problem, they'll have plenty of care packages for you to take home!
Reason #6: And last but not least, you will be a more interesting person.
Learn a few things, meet some cool people, it's guaranteed a GREAT weekend, man or woman.
