Lady - A Women’s Expo, presented by 22nd Century Media and Planet Fitness, is set to return from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, April 21, at the Tinley Park Convention Center, 18451 Convention Center Drive in Tinley Park. The annual event also is sponsored by the Chicago Sky, Ingalls Health System and Celebrity Cruises. The free event has more than 100 vendors slated to attend this year — covering health and wellness to fashion and beauty, food to financial planning — making it the largest Lady expo to date, according to Heather Warthen, chief events officer at 22nd Century Media. “The nice thing about this expo that I see year to year is that we see a lot of girls getting together and starting a ladies day out,” Warthen said. “We also draw moms, daughters and granddaughters. That’s what makes me happy. It’s a great prelude into Mother’s Day weekend and a great chance for women of all ages to bond.” Please see Expo, 12 Lady – A Women’s Expo: Four hacks to get the most out of your visit Jon DePaolis, Freelance Reporter A lot of people will be strolling through the aisles Saturday, April 21, for the fifth annual Lady – A Women’s Expo. We asked Heather Warthen, 22nd Century Media’s chief events officer and resident expert expo authority, for some “hacks” for those who plan to attend, so they can make best use of their time there. 1. Scout ahead: Take a look at the event’s Eventbrite webpage before you head to the convention center. It will have the full list of vendors, an event schedule for the fitness classes, cooking demos and main stage entertainment. Map out some things you definitely want to do and save yourself some idle time. 2. Arrive early to get some swag: Have you ever heard the expression, “The early bird gets the worm?” Well, in this case, early arrivers have the best chance at receiving a free gift bag. There only are 500 of these bad boys, so the closer you arrive to 9 a.m., the better your chance to pick one up. 3. Be a trendsetter; go against the flow: Warthen says that oftentimes, expogoers tend to follow a similar path through the aisles, leading to some congestion at certain spots. One way to avoid that? Be a trailblazer and walk in the opposite direction, by working from the back to the front. 4. Don’t be a hero, choose comfort over style: If those boots aren’t made for walking, leave them at home. With approximately 100 vendors and some serious entertainment, odds are your daily step count is going to exceed your goal. Wear some comfortable shoes.
