Winter Texan Expo




The 27th Annual event will be held January 14 and 15, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the McAllen Convention Center. Although it's called the "Winter Texan" Expo and Health Fair, all seniors are welcome! At last year’s Expo, approximately 9,700 Seniors passed through our doors for our 2-day event so don’t miss out on this great marketing opportunity!

If Seniors & Winter Texans are your market, You Need To Be There!!

We advertise to all the parks from Rio Grande City to South Padre Island. We advertise by radio, newspaper, flyers, magazines, internet, and personal invitations. We do our best to bring the Winter Texans and Converted Texans to you by promoting a fun event with great entertainment.
Then it’s up to you to meet them face to face to promote your business. There are a lot of choices in the Valley. Make your business stand out above the rest by being in our show.

According to the Center for Exhibition Industry Research:
83% of the attendees of trade shows were not reached by direct sales in the last 12 months.
72% of trade show visitors say the show influenced their buying decision.
So join our show this year. Call (956) 687-5115 to get registered.
