Advertising and sponsorship in On-Line Publishers’ publications and [50plus EXPOs and Women’s Expos] have made a positive impact on Homeland Center’s awareness and attracted residents and clients to our 150-year-old senior healthcare facility. Their creative and editorial staff always respond positively and have helped immeasurably as we expanded our outreach services in hospice, home care, and home health. ~ Betty H., Homeland Center / Homeland at Home

Your shows are some of the best shows we do … and we do a lot. We look forward to your shows because they are so well run and produce quality leads. ~ Michael Newell, Homespire Windows & Doors

We were busy the biggest part of the day … There was also time to network with the other vendors prior to the close of the Expo … I can’t say enough good things about the Expo [and] the folks who are responsible from the beginning to the end. ~ Karen Bruner, Asbury Home Services
