FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOS ANGELES, CA (January 30, 2014) – The 6th Annual TEEN PARTY EXPO, is on its way back to Southern California on Sunday, March 2nd, 2014, from noon to 6:00 p.m. at The LA Convention Center, http://www.TeenPartyExpo.com.
Thousands of teenagers and their families are once again expected to attend this one-of-a-kind event designed as the Ultimate Teen Celebration Showcase for teens and parents in preparation for their Quinceañera, Sweet 16, Cotillion, Filipino Debut, Bar/Bat Mitzvah and High School Prom. This year’s expo will be held in preparation for the upcoming High School Prom season, providing a great family outing with live performances from artists featured on 102.7 KIIS FM, including the new musical boy band sensation, IM5, launched by American Idol creators and Perez Hilton, with special appearances from favorite Disney Channel and ABC Family/Pretty Little Liars Stars!
“What makes Teen Party Expo such a unique experience is that we bring the special coming-of-age moments celebrated across cultures together for just for one day, all under one roof,” said GEC Events Organizer, Oscar Urrutia. “This is the place to have a great time and shop for savings while spotting the hottest trends for the most important cultural coming-of-age occasions in a teen’s life. Our Expo encourages respect for the cultures and traditions of those around us in a shared setting, celebrated and embraced with modern teenage flair. There is no other major event for teens and their parents in Los Angeles that serves this purpose,” he added.
Teen Party Expo, presented by GEC Events, is recognized for three important elements: the savings of up to 50% off provided by the 50+ hand selected exhibitors, the incredible concert ticket giveaways and the family friendly stage music entertainment hosted exclusively by LA’s #1 Hit Music Station 102.7 KIIS FM.
Also presented on the main stage is a feature called “TeenSation” (http://www.TeenSationUSA.com), an opportunity for expo attendees to help discover and launch upcoming teen bands and performers as the next exciting teen music acts trying to make it big! This year’s search will land the selected band/performer as the opening act on the 102.7 KIIS FM Main Stage!
“We will be transforming The LA Convention Center into a young, cool and hip environment for an unforgettable day of celebrities, red carpet arrival experiences, live music, electrifying DJ’s, amazing fashion shows, concert ticket giveaways and a whole lot more. Teen Party Expo is a great opportunity for teens and parents to come together with a common interest,” said Urrutia.
The “Big Day” is big business, as evidenced by a recent Rand Youth Poll that found the total U.S. teen spending (products bought by and for teens) comes in at $208.7 Billion. With a sizeable number of that total, approximately $117.6 Billion going towards items like apparel and entertainment. This includes rites of passage such as the prom, which according to The New York Times, tops out at nearly $1200.00 per family, while coming-out parties, including Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Quinceañera and Sweet 16 have been known to average $15,000 to $25,000 on the high end.
“Teen Party Expo has become a one-stop shop destination for innovative party ideas that can be used by any and all cultures – whether they are planning a super celebration or a backyard party. The expo hopes to celebrate our youth and deliver positive messages of self-esteem, community and family values as well as exhibitors offering amazing 1-Day Deals of up to 50% in savings,” added GEC Events manager Margarita Rodriguez.
Teen Party Expo is also honored to be collaborating with Friar’s Tuxedo and Luna’s Dresses in coordinating an amazing fashion show accompanied by live special guest performances.
