Did you know Canada.. Toronto Representative Faniya headed to the Vaughan Mompreneur Showcase last weekend, find out how it went..
Last week-end we (me and my family) attended Vaughan
Mompreneur showcase at luxury Paradise Banquet & Convention Centre.
It featured more than 75 vendors across Vaughan and the GTA just to
name a few: Cakes by Adriana, Polkadot Creations, Monkeynastix, Lisa Sinopoli and many more.
The showcase presented the vast variety of products
and services ranging from children’s clothes, kids cooking to Nannies
on Call and Rock music lessons. There was something for everyone in
the family: for kids, for dads, for moms and grandparents. We also received
a nice swag bag.
The event included free activities for kids: PTPA Kids Zone, Mums’n Chums Birthday Bash, a bouncy castle, a red-fruit
character from Tutor Doctor, a Magician to
show the tricks and a really cute kangaroo and a turtle at Lisa Sinopoli’s booth.
I was so excited when parenting expert Robbina Uddin (also known as Nanny Robina) started her workshop on how to get the little
babies and toddlers to sleep as this topic is one of my first interests
right now. Another speaker I anticipated to listen to was PTPA founder Sharon Vinderine who explained the importance of toy safety.
One thing I also liked is that the stage for speakers was set up behind
the vendors’ lines in the middle of the banquet hall
so everyone could hear the speeches and shop or walk at the same time.
We were treated with delicious food from Novita, decorated a cupcake with Oh So Sweet and as kids cooking became a new trend,
have to mention Petits Chefs Academy
and Oh So Sweet offering
children’s cooking classes and workshops.
Overall the showcase was a really great event, there
were lots of mom-owned businesses to shop and learn about. We are also
very happy that 100% of the admission and proceeds from the silent auction
donated to Zack's
Dream Room, York Central Hospital.
Thank you Vaughan Mompreneurs for organizing this amazing event. It was
a huge success and we are looking forward to attending again next year!
