Just before Christmas there has been an event I have been attending for the past 3 years and I couldn't wait to go there again. I went there with my mom once and she loved it. However, she usually travels around this time of the year so she is disappointed she is missing it again. The National Women Show only comes once a year in Toronto. The only people who are lucky is Ottawa where it is hosted in Spring and the Fall. Lucky Ducks! I hope eventually we might get the Spring event one of these days.
There is so much to see and do that it could be overwhelming that you might have to come back twice in one weekend. I won't be surprised if people comes back every day of the event. If you are early enough you may be able to receive a loot bag filled with some goodies for you to try. Then you might be even lucky to score some goodies on the way out too! Some vendors would even supply you with more goodies when you visit them. Most of the time the lines do go fast and there are a few that takes forever because they want your shipping information.
Alot of vendors host their own personal giveaways additional to the ones the National Women Show hosts. My tip is to create labels of your mailing address and email. It saves you so much time. As a coupon users they hand out great valued coupons that I could never get them anywhere else. I have even received Free Product Coupons if I show them I like their Facebook page or tweeted. What is really annoying that their free Wifi is only available in the lobby and common areas. I don't understand why they can have it inside the location. If you have data, then you are all set. If you don't, I was running back and forth between the entrance and the vendor.
If you like Costco handing you free food samples then be prepare that the National Women Show has alot of food and drinks samples. When I bring my kids to sample the food, my purchase does usually depends on their vote.
If you like great deals, you will like shopping here. Most vendors would have an event special prices. On the last day of the last hour, expect even greater discount. Vendors hates to pack up so they want to get rid of them so they would mark it down.
If you have never been to this event I would suggest you try it for a day. Remember to expect there will be alot of people as if it is Christmas Eve where everyone is out shopping at once.
National Women Show in Toronto would love to give one of my readers a pair of tickets for this years event. You will be picking them up from the show at the ticket booth. Travel is not covered
