New Website “Specialty Connections” Provides New Ways for Businesses to Make Connections

Press Releases

Specialty Connections is the website for learning about fabulous expos and other opportunities.

East Hills, NY - July 24, 2014 - Specialty Connections.com is Barbara Kaplan’s expansion site for the successful expos she has presented for the past few years, the Over 50 Fair and the All Kids Fair. The new version of her website covers services in addition to those connected with the large, already established expos. Barbara Kaplan said, “Specialty Connections is the website for learning about fabulous expos and other opportunities. Our slogan is ‘Connecting businesses with their audience’. I am now coordinating events at other area malls, Simon Malls’ Walt Whitman Shops and Smith Haven Mall, and helping people make business connections in other ways”.
 
Examples of the non-expo services Barbara has provided for clients include finding opportunities for them to speak about their businesses and helping them connect with other businesspeople they should know. A client wanted to learn how to run craft expos, and Barbara is teaching her to do that. To date, Barbara has coordinated four events at Walt Whitman Shops this year and has two scheduled for Smith Haven Mall, the “Back to School Blast” for children and their families on Sunday, August 24, and “A Dose of Healthy Living” health and wellness fair on Sunday, October 19. She is actively welcoming new vendor applications for the two Smith Haven Mall events and the Over 50 Fair expo. 
 
The fifth annual Over 50 Fair will return to the Melville Marriott on Sunday, September 28, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is sponsored by LongIsland.com. This event offers a broad spectrum of services and products relevant to Baby Boomers and seniors. The 90 exhibitors will feature local medical and dental practices, financial experts, education providers, weight loss and vitamin sources, home improvement services and other businesses appropriate to the target group.  Thirty classes will educate and entertain on topics including retirement planning, stress reduction, iPad apps, yoga, and comedy shows.
