Hundreds of men and women flocked to the Concorde for the Saturday-Sunday affair that featured car shows, health activities, electronics, basketball, dominoes –– and even a “man cave”.

One of the organizers, Barbados Private Sector Association chairman Alex McDonald, told Barbados TODAY the expo had exceeded their expectations, and they were already looking forward to a bigger and better expo next year.

And with Father’s Day just one week away, the females were out in their numbers, taking the opportunity to treat their men to a day out. Some even took the time to make several purchases for their guys from the variety of stalls and services on offer.

“It has been a fantastic two days. We have been getting positive reviews from everybody. We had great events. We had the sound-off, the fittest man competition; we had Caribbean LED doing their thing; we had LIME; we had Massy Stores; and we had lots of people. We saw many more passing through than we expected . . . . We will definitely be back next year,” McDonald said.

Other organizers of the event were media personality Vic Fernandes, attorney-at-law Wilfred Abrahams and businessman Alain Hinds.
