About the event
Once Upon Prom is Canada’s Premier Prom & Special Occasions Show. The show celebrates everything prom and beyond.
Our story began with the initial idea to create a show for prom and all other special occasions. There were numerous wedding shows that focused strictly on weddings, but there was no show you could attend if you wanted to celebrate Prom or any other special occasion.
The show offers convenience by hosting numerous exhibitors and sponsors in who specialize in the prom and special occasion industry, from major retail stores, top Evening Wear Designers, Venues, Limo’s, Flowers, Music, Jewelry, and so much more, all in one location.
WE are also proud to present our Red Carpet Fashion Show Event, with the latest styles and trends for all your special occasions. Introducing this year, our 1st Annual PROM IDOL competition which is open to students of all ages allowing them to showcase their talents. We are also providing future designers a chance to have their design premier on our Red Carpet by hosting our 1st Annual Future Designer Competition,
Why should you sponsor?
The Once Upon a Prom and Special Occasion Show offers everyone involved an elegant boutique style show, a Red Carpet Fashion Event, and our very own Prom Idol, to attendees, sponsors and exhibitors.
We are currently in a unique postion of being the a first of it's kind show, with no competition and having a demographic that will only grow with each passing year. Many of these special events are family traditions, with prom parents striving to create a memory that will last a lifetime. Once you have made a connection with the potenial client they can become a returning client for all future events or occasions.
We will be developing our marketing & promotional stratgies using social media, online news feeds, through the schools, on site show interviews, and a 5 minute video interview with our individual sponsors. This will provide our sponsors with the oppurtunity to promote their products, services and showcase their place of buisness. We also promote our sponsors and exhibitors all year long on all of our social media platforms and website. This gives you the oppurtunity to provide us with any updated material you would like to have promoted.
The outlook for the Once Upon a Prom and Special Occasion Show is exteremly positive there will always be a market for the show as each year there is a continuous flow of graduating classes, and special occasions, this will provide an increasing, consumer attendance, providing our Sponsors and Vendors with the oppurtunity to obtain and substain future business.
My name is Mary, and I am the Owner/Producer of the Once Upon a Prom and Special Occasion Show. I have been in the event design business for approximately 14 years. I have created and designed many types of events from weddings, corporated functions, charity events, gala's, tradeshows. I have also created numerous family based events such as 50th birthday's, anniversaries, sweet 16's, showers, baptism's and many more. I take it as my mission to make your dream a reality. After all most of your special occaisons/events will only happen once in a lifetime. That is why I like to create the magic that will give the "WOW FACTOR!"
I have a degree in Psychology, and after working in the field for a number of years I left the profession to persue both Human Resources and Political Science. I believe in giving back to my community and coached baseball in both league and Rep. divisons, for the Sentinal Park Association. When I wasn't on the field with my teams I was President of the organization, and in charge of our fundraising campaigns.
I am proud to say that each one of our events will always have a charity component to it. Myself and the OUAP team are committed to lending a helping hand were we can, and on our own time we are personally involved in a number of charity organizations.
I bring a well rounded wealth of knowledge of both people and the industry to each of the events we produce, I love what I do, I love the incredibly talented people I work with. It is important to have a mutal goal and respect for your team, sponsors, and vendors, because without them it's just a dream, but when we all work together that dream becomes a reality.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to the oppurtinity of working with you.
