This year was quiet different then last year for Debbie and I and the expo as a whole. There was a huge improvement in the floor plan laid out for the TY expo. Instead of being spread out over multiple floors everything was on one floor including the huge vapour lounge. More exhibitors, entertainment, attendees, information and free stuff. Even a much more upbeat positive vide surrounded this years 3 day event over last year. There VIP dinner was at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre itself unlike last year when two boats were used. Additionally there were off site after parties at Vapour Central and even Skunk Magazine sponsored a awesome off site party that Kelly Christie and I ended up being coerced onto the stage to be included in part of the show for attendees enjoyment and my embarrassment and enjoyment (yes I have fun with it). Kelly’s performance on stage was just awesome the crowd loved it.
One glaring example, for myself personally, of the change in attitude amount the attendees was last year a attendee approached me with some disturbing comments one being along the line, the expo was going to be raided by the police and so on. I of course knew right away this was not at all true! I went on to try to gently explain to this person that their fears were not at all based on reality and why I knew what I was telling them to be actual facts. Sadly I think I was not able to convince this person and they continued on their way. I assume continuing to spread what they believed the expo was going to be raided. This year for the 2nd annual Treating Yourself Expo the exact same fearful person from last year was a volunteer in a booth no less.
The 3rd Annual Treating Yourself Medical Marijuana & Hemp Expo will once again be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. May 25, 26 and 27 / 2012.
