The Just Live! Gold Coast Seniors Expo is on again – 15-16 June

The Just Live! Gold Coast Seniors Expo is back! Come and join in the fun on Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16 June at the Gold Coast Event Centre, Bundall.

Gold Coast Seniors are embracing Just Live! as a way to control how they want to live their lives now, while at the same time plan for the future. 

This year the Gold Coast Seniors Expo will return in 2021 in a COVIDSafe way. The practices we have become familiar with – physical distancing, hand washing, extra cleaning, crowd management, health questionnaires and contract tracing will all form part of the COVIDSafe practices you can expect to see at this year’s Gold Coast Seniors Expos.

Entry to the Gold Coast Seniors Expo is FREE. The expo will link seniors with over 70 product and service providers as well as holiday, leisure, lifestyle and technology options. Attendees will have the opportunity to test drive mobility and assistive technology aids, attend workshops, and gain insight into aged care options with guest speakers, My Aged Care planners and coordinators, government agencies and advocacy groups.

The two-day event will entertain attendees with a range of key-note speakers, demonstrations, workshops, live stage entertainment and variety of delicious food and coffee trucks to contribute to a positive, information-rich environment in which seniors will confidently make decisions that affect them for years to come. 

The DooWop Dolls will be the headline act at the Expo. Known for their Andrews Sisters-style harmonies, the DooWop Dolls are a study in 40s, 50s and 60s song and dance, costume and glamour.

The DooWop Dolls are old hands at delighting crowds that really know their music. Between themed parties, festivals and special events, they are often found entertaining people in nursing homes and retirement villages.

Band Manager Melissa Isles grew up listening to the music of her parents’ and grandparents’ favourite vinyls: The Andrews Sisters, Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, The Supremes, Johnny Cash and so many more. 

“Music transports people back in time. They remember the steps and slip back into that natural grace and elegance,” Melissa says.

The DooWop Dolls will be performing 40s, 50s and 60s style music at 10:30am, 12pm and 1:30pm on both Tuesday and Wednesday, June 15-16, at the Gold Coast Seniors Expo, Gold Coast Event Centre (next door to the Racecourse).

To attend the Gold Coast Seniors Expo, just register online, or come on down to the Gold Coast Event Centre – it’s the one next door to Racecourse – Jim Griffiths Way, Bundall.
