2015 Aurora Chamber Home Show Announcement from Judy Marshall, CEO
The Aurora Chamber of Commerce is moving the Annual Aurora Chamber Home Show from the Aurora Community Centre (ACC) to the Stronach Aurora Recreation Complex (SARC). The date of the event will remain as April 10, 11 and 12, 2015.
“It is a great opportunity for change and growth,” says Robin Taylor-Smith, who has been the volunteer chair for the Show for a number of years. “The change will be an unbelievable amount of work but it will give us a new creative edge.”
The Town of Aurora asked the Chamber to move their annual Home Show last February, six weeks before the scheduled date of the Show to accommodate the possible playoff season for the Tigers, the local Junior A Hockey Team.
“A move at that point in the planning stage for the event was not possible,” added Judy Marshall, CEO for the Chamber. “Ethically we did not believe it was fair to the confirmed exhibitors and logistically not possible for the staff and volunteers. We have now had the opportunity to review the facility in more detail and think about the future of the event. We have a committed, dedicated and creative group of volunteers. We will introduce exciting new opportunities for exhibitors.”
Changes were made recently by Hockey Canada and, the only rink that qualifies for the play-offs in Aurora is the ACC. The dates of the play-offs conflicted with those of the Aurora Chamber Home Show. The Tigers and the Chamber are pleased to have come to an agreement for the benefit of both organizations and the Town of Aurora.
Watch for updates. Applications will be available October 1, 2014. The Show will be bigger and better!
