  1. My favourite thing to do at The Gentlemen’s Expo is connect with new professionals and innovative entrepreneurs!

  2. My favourite thing to do at The Gentlemen’s Expo is explore new products and search for gifts for my guys.

  3. Great giveaway! And what an amazing opportunity for entrepreneurs to get to pitch to the Dragons! I love Dragon’s Den, as well as its American spin-off Shark’s Tank.

  4. The coolest thing at the Gentlemen’s Expo last year was the informative beer and spirit tasting areas. We never would have tried some of the craft beers or high-end spirits if it wasn’t for the opportunity through this event! The photo booth was super fun – pictures that are still up on the fridge! 🙂

    • Sounds like you had a great time at the Gentlemen’s Expo, Kelly! Yes, the photo booth does sound like fun. Lori

  5. My favourite thing to do at The Gentlemen’s Expo is to shop and learn about new products that I have never heard of before!
