2015 Charitable Initiatives – 2 Amazing Charities

Posted in: Uncategorized by admin on May 9, 2015 | No Comments

Janewaymiles for smiles

We are proud to be partnering with two fantastic charities this year for the 2015 NL Kids Expo, the Janeway Children Hospital Foundation and the Miles for Smiles Foundation!

It just so happens that the Janeway Children’s Miracle Network Telethon will be taking place on the same weekend as the NL Kids Expo so Milestone Promotions & Events will be hosting various fundraising initiatives throughout the weekend, including ticket sales for a chance to win a trip for 2 to any scheduled WestJet destination! All funds raised through these efforts will be donated to the 31st Annual Janeway Children’s Miracle Network Telethon on Sunday, June 7th.

We are also pleased to have the Miles for Smiles Foundation joining us at the NL Kids Expo promoting awareness, prevention and support for victims of child abuse. The Miles for Smiles mission is to prevent child abuse through public awareness and education. Learn more about the Miles for Smiles Foundation by clicking their logo above.

2015 NL Kids Expo – Save The Date

3456q6365-265x300We are very excited to announce that before leaving the 2014 NL Kids Expo venue we signed off on dates for next year’s NL Kids Expo at Techniplex, and it feels great to make this our “home” for the NL Kids Expo! Mark your calendar’s as June 6th – 7th, 2015 are the dates for next years NL Kids Expo!

In the meantime, we have several other events we are working on that we will soon be posting here; keep checking back to see the big news!

 

2014 NL Kids Expo

Posted in: Uncategorized by admin on May 1, 2014 | No Comments

The 3rd Annual NL Kids Expo will take place June 7-8, 2014 at Techniplex in Pleasantville(St. John’s) – seconds away from Quidi Vidi Lake.  The past couple of years has been a great experience and we live and learn from those experiences!  Last year we made considerable improvements from that of the 1st ever NL Kids Expo and we got great reviews back from those in attendance!  This year we are making it even better and have moved once again to Techniplex(we hope this is our permanent home).  To give you a perspective on how big this facility is, our Kids Zone this year is similar in size to the entire venue we used last year for the entire Kids Expo!  Over 15,000 square feet of bouncy castles, face painting, balloon twisters and more!

The past 2 years we have seen over 18,000 people through the gates of the NL Kids Expo and we recognize the demand for quality, family, kid friendly activities in the province.  While currently, the NL Kids Expo is based in St. John’s and caters to the capital city and surrounding areas – we have indeed been asked to take a form of the NL Kids Expo on the road and it just might happen one of these days!

We have over 70 exhibitors confirmed for this year’s event already making it the biggest yet!  Our kids zone area is huge and we have not 1 but 2 stages that will be in full swing throughout the entire weekend!  On those stages you will see everything from Newfoundland Reptiles, NL Jungle Pets, magic shows, musical performances, kids zumba, educational sessions, dance shows and so much more!

I speak personally when I say I pour my heart and soul into this event as I want it to be an annual event for families and one where memories can be created and last a lifetime!  Similar to the memories I have with my parents and my entire family at the Royal St. John’s Regatta.  That was and still is my day to create memories and reflect on favourable ones from the past — while constantly creating new ones, I look back fondly on my childhood – saving up my pennies for the entire year to spin a few wheels down at the lake, the smell of cotton candy and popcorn, the gun going off for the races and the CLB Band playing up the pond!  I never created this event to be another Regatta and the history behind that event goes on longer than I will be around but I do hope that you come to the NL Kids Expo this year and not only see your children happy but you enjoy it just as much as them!

Posted in: Uncategorized by admin on February 1, 2013 | No Comments

You Asked, We Listened…Milestone Promotions is excited to announce that the 2013 NL Kids Expo will be taking place on June 15 and 16 at the Jack Byrne Arena in Torbay, NL!

After our inaugural NL Kids Expo back in June 2012 we were overwhelmed with the response – unheard of for a first time event with over 10,000 visitors! It was obvious that moving forward, a larger venue was needed to accommodate such an event.

So this year we have made the following improvements:

*50% increase in Kids Zone and we will have additional bouncy castles,
*350 more parking spaces,
*25% larger floor space for exhibitors
*100% of building is wheelchair/stroller friendly/accessible
More details coming soon!The 2013 NL Kids Expo is already shaping up to be bigger and better than the last so be sure to stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for every exciting announcement as we plan yet another amazing event that kids and kids at heart won’t want to miss!!
