EnvironFocus Show and Tell is a multicultural event. It is a replica of no other, showcasing the different culture that is Canada and is held quarterly in Mississauga Ontario. The event aims to do the following:
- To promote the green vendor as well as educate the public on green options available in the community showcasing the cultural diversities
- To make the event a safe forum where individuals and small businesses can showcase their ideas, initiatives, products or services without judgment and they receive feedback that will help them in their journey towards being environmentally conscious of every action they take.
The last event took place June 11, 2016 at the Holiday Inn Express & Suite Toronto-Mississauga, 40 Admiral Boulevard, Mississauga Ontario from 10 – 4pm. The event was successful. There was Poetry reading by International Poet – Juliet Kego Ume-Onyido and there were green vendor presentations. Vendor and Sponsor promotions started ahead of the event day – online via social media (Facebook – www.facebook.com/EnvironBuzz/, Twitter – @EnvironBuzz and EnvironBuzz LinkedIn page) and the EnvironFocus website (www.environfocus.com/show-tell/) and EnvironBuzz meet up group (www.meetup.com/EnvironBuzz/). 14 green vendors participated in total and they made sales prior to the event and at the event. The public including hotel residents dropped by at different times. The media was also in attendance. It was a mid-sized event. There was also a Certificate of Appreciation presented to the Holiday Inn Express & Suite Toronto – Mississauga for their continuous support of our organization, EnvironFocus and our Community Environmental Education initiatives in Canada.
Some feedbacks about the event were as follow:
“I have participated in big and small events but I have never felt as respected as I felt at this event “-Long Live Our Pets by Robin Noble | Green Vendor
“The Show and Tell Event was very interactive. Got me thinking more in a green conscious way, knowing that in everything we do, we must be thinking about our beautiful ecosystem. EnvironFocus made me realize that being alive is a gift. I also made a lot of friends. Thanks Obie for this event. To life and more life!” – CookieReads by Ngozika Elizabeth Mbonu | Green Vendor
“It was a beautiful event. It was enlightening. It was good to see all the vendors that came out and I will definitely attend again” – Loretto Modunkwu, Homelife Paradise Realty| Attendee
