- In Grand Rapids, we want to add an additional 6o booths for a total of 170. Our goal for attendees is 1000+
- Our Expo printed program will double to 16 pages and approximately 43,000 of these programs will be inserted into two newspapers across the state
- TV ad's will more than double and run on the east and west side of Michigan
