Exhibitors 2018

We have prepared 1 year for 1 day and that day is 29th September. We welcome you to the event on behalf of our team of 70 incredible change makers that include police officers, professors, corporate executives, students,  government officials and many more. Experience Your Life is dedicated to making a real difference in the lives of students and young professionals who are seeking to discover themselves and their passions while making a positive impact on the world. The Expo has grown to be one of the largest empowerment events in Ontario. We target a very specific demographic of positive change makers / risk takers who are seeking direction in their career.

Important tips:

  • Please bring a printed copy of your tickets. We are going to be a sold-out event and this is required for you to enter the event.
  • The location is Novotel Mississauga. Plan your commute to be there on time.
  • Research the organizations and executives attending. This is truly an incredible opportunity so prepare well for it.
  • Come early – the first 100 attendees get a gift bag of $50+ value. The Expo opens at 11 and the lineup starts at 10:30 a.m. or before.
  • Please AVOID driving to the Expo and take public transit instead. The area around the hotel gets very busy so if you do decide to drive, please park in parking lots that are 3 to 4 minutes walk away (e.g. Square One) to ensure a smooth experience for your selves and others.
  • For breakout rooms, please make sure you arrive early. There are only 9 spots per executive on the roundtable and they will be assigned on a first come first serve basis on the day of the event. This could be a life changing conversation with executives who are flying from across Canada and the world so don’t miss out.
  • Plan your visit so you are there for a very special book launch at 1:00 p.m. for “Boy in the Library”. Last year, Sultan (Founder of Experience Your Life Expo) had launched a new project to build libraries around the world ( Since that time, he has built 20 libraries in 7 countries. This book captures that journey and is a guide for anyone looking for inspiration to follow their dreams. We have a 100 people capacity for this session so signup early on 29th Sep!
  • If you don’t have a breakout room ticket, you can still be on the waitlist. We will assign you a seat in case there is a cancellation or no-show. Again, showing up early is key.
