The Gentlemens Expo
Gentlemen, start your engines… and head on down to the highly anticipated Gentlemens Expo at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on November 22nd to 24th.
When I found out about The Gentlemen’s Expo, my mind exploded. Overwhelmed with excitement, I headed to the TGE website to find out everything I could about the event. And with every click and scroll, that excitement grew larger and larger to the point where I realized that this was a huge deal. Not only for me, but for the entire men’s lifestyle industry.
“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.
With no detail overlooked, TGE will feature celebrity guests, interactive experiences, and the best brands that matter to most guys. Combined with a conference and consumer show for both men, and the women in their lives, TGE has already been proven to be the must attend event of the year. The event is being carefully tailored for every kind of gentlemen, from techies, handymen, travellers, cultured, sports fanatics, foodies, and the fashion/style enthusiasts.
“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.
On Sunday November 24th, TGE will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Gathering of People with Moustaches. The best part, $5.00 of every ticket sold will be donated to Movember Canada to support Prostate Cancer research and men’s mental health. To help achieve their goal, TGE have decided to give away 1000 Sunday tickets to the first 1000 people to follow @GentlemensExpo and @TGEWorldRecord, and tweet the following: “Count on my moustache to help break the World Record @GentlemensExpo @TGEWorldRecord #GentlemensMo”.
It looks like I only have a few days to attempt to grow out an acceptable moustache. I am not 100% certain on the requirements, however it will be interesting nonetheless. But one things for certain, this is going to be a great weekend to be a gentlemen.
