COTA NT’s SENIORS EXPO runs in June and is held in Darwin. It celebrates an ‘age-friendly’ Territory and seniors’ ongoing contribution to Territory life.
The first Seniors EXPO was created by COTA NT in 2015 with a vision of creating a free, open one-stop community event where stakeholders can meet with service providers, businesses and community groups focusing on seniors’ issues, concerns and lifestyle.
Lord Mayor of Darwin, Katrina Fong Lim described Seniors EXPO as a “very special community event”. The first Seniors EXPO in 2015 won the Australia Day Award for Community Event of the Year award.
SENIORS EXPO continues to grow. Over 70 stallholders, over 14 performance groups including choirs, dancers, musicians and a fashion parade, sausage sizzle, have-a-go opportunities, competitions and community morning tea help create this event.
The event is supported by sponsors, grant-funding, stakeholders and an army of volunteers including students from Darwin High School. Nearly 1000 seniors are expected to attend Seniors EXPO.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for Seniors EXPO. Call Stephanie, Events & Communications Manager on 8941 1004 or email to discuss your options and investment levels.
