5 Things Not To Miss at #TGE2017

GentlemenExpo2016_373

We’re back with another 5 Things You Cannot Miss At #TGE2017. Our curated list is below, but first… friendly reminder that The Gentlemen’s Expo is November 24 & 25 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building. Style & Grooming, Food & Drink, Health & Wellness, Guest Speakers and Live Demos. Don’t ya dare miss it! Now, on to the list…

Whitley Neill

Yes, we are getting quite a reputation for having an incredible selection on cocktails at our event. Yes, we are ‘OK’ with this. Yes, we will be showcasing a number of bevvys this year; like Whitley Neill Gin. Inspired by Africa and handcrafted in England. It’s a balanced Dry Gin; that blends classic gin botanicals with exotic African essences to create a blend with a flavour as unique as its heritage. Make sure you look out for Whitley Neill from Nov 24-25 at the MTCC North Building.

Gentlemen Of The North

GOTN is what happens when two stylish gents want to create a line of cool clothing and top notch accessories. We can’t wait to check out their latest line of Headwear at TGE2017. It’s made for Canadian winters by people who have actually experienced Canadian winters. Oh, and also ask them about the Gentlemen Of The North ‘sock of the month’ club. You’ll be glad you did.

Pocket Square Clothing

When USC grads Rodolfo Ramirez and Andrew Cheung started Pocket Square Clothing (or as the cool kids call it ‘PSC’) I’m sure they never dreamt that they would be accessorizing and dressing some of the biggest names in sports & entertainment. Or maybe they did know… and that’s what fuelled their industry rise. PSC wants to ‘become a styledestination for talented gentlemen who care about the way they look’ and you can learn all about them at TGE2017.

6ix Man Grooming

We know that taking care of your beard is no joke. This is serious business. 6ix Man is a start-up in the field of cosmeticsfocusing on mens grooming. They define a 6ix Man as “A classically modern man. Regardless of what he is doing, he always looks good.” Does that sound like you? I bet it does. Beard oils, balms, combs and everything you need to keep your beard fresh. That’s 6ix Man.

Shirt Studs

What can we say about Shirt Studs… Theses trailblazers are always pushing the boundaries of what’s next in men’s style accessories. Mixed media, 3D printing and beyond. May we suggest cuff links that project holograms of our favourite hip hop acts performing? AT #TGE2017 take a look at their offerings. You’ll be amazed. Even better, everything Shirt Studs makes is hand crafted in Toronto. And yes, those are Prestige Worldwide cufflinks. Siiiiick!

There’s another quick rundown of some our most anticipated partners at #TGE2017. Come to #TGE2017 is you’re into: style, grooming, health, fitness, food, drink, sports, entertainment, cars, bikes, and pretty much anything that involves living and being better! We will be unveiling our line-up of celebrity guests, attractions and exhibitors soon, so stay tuned!

What is a #Gentfluencer? Well, that’s you. Someone who aims to #BeBetter. It’s someone who puts more into the world than they take out. It’s someone who is defined by what they stand for, not what they stand against. They are someone who is constantly learning, always improving, and someone who pushes the status quo. A Gentfluencer can be male or female. It’s all about how you carry yourself.

Top 10 Highlights From #TGE2016

tge-thanks-web

Where do we begin? Easy… by thanking you for coming. Without you (yes, I’m talking to you) there would be no show. Honestly, #TGE2016 is only as good as the audience who joins us, and you were perfect! Thank you.

Here’s a quick list of some of our fav moments:

10) Hypnotist Chris Jones convincing a lady that Drake was here.

9) Jason Grilli sharing how much he loves the city of Toronto.

8) Wendel Clark and Doug Gilmour playing bubble hockey with Rick Mercer looking on.

7) Ian Thornley of Big Wreck on the slide guitar while telling stories with Jeff Woods.

6) Wendel Clark and Doug Gilmour sharing the story of Harold Ballard’s dog.

5) The UCC Chef Battle that saw Ted Reader get his hand raised in victory!

4) Jim Cuddy sharing stories about being on the road with The Tragically Hip

3) Mark DeMontis of Courage Hockey inspiring an entire room and beyond.

2) GSP on the state of the UFC, and what the future of fighting holds.

1) The Gentlemen and Gentlewomen of Toronto showing all kinds of love to our food purveyors, vendors, special guests, Main Stage personalities, Culinary Stage experts, our staff, the security and more.

Special shout out to OG Series: Brisket, Beer and Bourbon After Party at The Carbon Bar on Thursday night. Surrounded by great BBQ and about 200 of our closest friends was def a highlight of the weekend.

Let’s do it again next year!

Top 5 Discoveries at #TGE2016

7012t-52

One big takeaway from #TGE2016 is that we discover new things. Our audience tells us. Our vendors tell us. Our chefs tell us. Our celebrity guests tell us. It must be true. There are some killer products and awesome experiences that are here every year and we love them. But here’s a quick snapshot of some of the new items and experiences that rose to the top this year:

5) Jord – Wooden watches. Straight outta Missouri, these guys make some pretty badass watches. The wooden bracelets are stunning. Nothing like it. Get on our wrists!!!

4) The UCC Chef Battle – The Underground Chef Co do these battles on the regular, but this one was live inside The Gentlemen’s Expo. It’s chef vs chef with a secret ingredient thrown in to spice things up. A panel of culinary stars judge the battle and declare a victor. (For the record Chef Ted Reader won this time) Chef Joe Friday and Chef Mike Ward narrated the whole thing. It was crazy. It was a high energy and welcome addition to #TGE2016 and no doubt will be back next year.

3) Tenfed – This is a clothing company that is trying to make a difference. Kory and the crew offer up high quality tees and toques for a cause. Every Tenfed shirt sold helps feed 10 hungry children. Do you need any other reason to support this project?

2) We Are VR. Watching our audience experience VR for the first time was unreal. Slap on the headset and get transformed to another place. Gaming, movies and experiences are all next level now. The future of playing a game or watching a concert will blow your mind, as it did all weekend long at #TGE2016.

1) Parc City Boot Co. – These boots are unreal. They were flying off the shelves inside #TGE2016. Designed and hand-crafted in Portugal. We’re honoured that Parc City Boot Co were here and that our audience embraced them. Gentlemen of Toronto are savvy consumers and these boots have found a home.

Hope you like this list. What did you discover? Tell us in the comments so we can share the love.
