This has been an exciting year for us here at Events Plus Management Ltd. Being in the events management industry, we’re always looking for new ways to support the Exhibitors at our shows, the Fraser Valley Wedding Festival and the Westcoast Small Home Expo. When we were unable to host our shows last year, we started this podcast partly as a way to help not only some of our Exhibitors, but also other community organizations and small businesses gain a little extra exposure. We’re proud of what we’ve produced, and we’re so grateful that you’ve joined us for 42 episodes – almost exactly a year!

Now that our beautiful province is opening up again, we’re also looking forward to getting outside and enjoying the sunshine. We’re taking a hiatus, so you won’t hear from us for a few months. In the meantime, we invite you to join us at our upcoming events, foremost in that list being the Fraser Valley Wedding Festival, coming to the Abbotsford Clarion Hotel and Conference Centre, at 36035 N Parallel Rd, on Sunday September 26th. You can learn more about this event and others coming up this fall, at FraserValleyWeddingFestival.com.

Before I sign off for the summer, I’d like to offer some brief but heartful thanks to some special people. Firstly, to my producer Heather Rodland, who is the hardworking force behind the scenes. She is a wealth of connections and information, and too shy to be on the microphone with me. She has become a treasured friend, and I get to work with her even more now, on our shows and other ventures. My sincere thanks also to my husband Geoff, who has listened carefully to my edits on every episode, and been very supportive of many early mornings and late evenings to help produce content, not to mention all of his valuable input regarding questions, editing, and hosting. And to his sister Barb, the owner and captain of Events Plus, and of this podcast, for believing in yet another one of my crazy ideas.

More thanks to our entire team at EPM, including Kim, Robyn, and everyone else who pitches in whenever needed. 

Lastly, a HUGE thanks to all my special guests! I hope that if we haven’t been fortunate enough to do so yet, that we can all meet in person soon! What incredible, inspirational, and truly interesting people all of you are! I’m so grateful to each of you for your time, your energy, your faith, and your kindness. How lucky am I, huh?

Stay safe everyone, see you out in the Valley!
