"I have been presenting / demoing our product "Natur-a" at the Ottawa National Women's Show for over 4 years now, and in my opinion is it's one of the best consumer shows out there! The staff are professional and fun! The consumer, intuitive and smart, and always looking to try something new! This was the first show we showcased our new frozen Soy desser "Glace" to a huge appreciative group! Of course our Organic Soy and Rice beverage "Natur-a" is always a hit and the consumers look forward to seeing us! Thanks National Women's Show for making our product a huge success in Ottawa!"

"Participating in the National Women’s Show has provided us with a great opportunity to reach thousands of women in our target audience. Our charitable organization has partnered with the National Women’s Show as their preferred charity of choice for over 6 years and each year the organizers provide us with exciting new ways to raise awareness for our cause."

"This was our first time exhibiting at the National Women’s Show and we didn’t know exactly what to expect. What we got was an exceptional event that far exceeded our expectations in every way. From the pre-event organization and planning through to the on-site delivery and attendance, we achieved an ROI that more than doubled our original estimates. We were so pleased with the results after the first day that we committed to exhibit at the next two events. We recommend it to anyone that is trying to build their brand and drive revenue generation with a 20 - 50 something female audience."

"The National Women Show has been a tremendous hit for our Company from the very beginning. We are thrilled to be participating yet again in the upcoming Ottawa show. The success of participating in the show comes not only from the products we show case but, also from the excellent logistical support and expertise of the organizers and promoters. One of a kind show. Full of vibe."

"I was pleasantly surprised by the caliber of the Ottawa National Women's Show held in the lovely heritage building at Landsdowne Park, in Ottawa, at the end of September. Once you cross the canopy threshold and step into the show, you are greeted by friendly hostesses who present each visitor with a recyclable bag filled with interesting facts and information, and a nice array of free treats and gifts, to enjoy both during and after the show (the pedometer was a very practical gift, I have used it to track the number of miles walked and calories burned!). I noticed that there was something of interest for every age group. I especially liked the beautiful silk scarves and pashminas - such versatile accent pieces to add warmth, rich color and texture to our Fall and Winter wardrobe . I could see some of the teenagers looking at designer handbags and jewellery (at very reasonable prices); young mothers seemed attracted to the lovely soft hand made woolen sweaters, scarves and socks. Both the young and young at heart experimented with new make-up products and application techniques, as well as trying the newer treatments in cosmetics."
"The National Women's Show also provided a wonderful opportunity to obtain information on a wide array of topics from natural health medicine, weight loss programs and surgery options, to natural home cleaning products and other useful products not found on store shelves. There were lovely samples of tasty foods like hummus and tabouleh, pastas, and other delectable sweet treats. Beaudry Florists were also one of many businesses providing some beautiful inspiration for home décor, and there was great information on interesting places to travel in Ontario. Yes, there was something for everyone at the show, and it was a nice way to spend a few carefree hours together with friends, enjoying all the displays. The Show was both fun and informative, and a great way to learn about all kinds of business and products, as well as to experience new things in a relaxed and enjoyable way. Of course, seeing a television personality like Brad Carlton from the Young and the Restless, in person, provided a "crowning touch" to the whole womens' experience! I am looking forward to the upcoming show in the Spring, wondering with anticipation what new things are out there to discover."
