Are you staying at an Aldergrove hotel during “Movember”? If you are, then you definitely need to stop by The Vancouver Men’s Show at the Tradex Trade and Exhibition Center located just 15 minutes from our BEST WESTERN PLUS Country Meadows Hotel. We’re sure that many of you have heard of “Movember,” a huge fundraising event which takes place every November and raises money for prostate cancer research. Fortunately for guests visiting the Aldergrove area this November, Prostate Cancer Canada has taken support for the event to a whole new level with the inaugural Vancouver Men’s Show an exhibition that showcases the hottest trends and most innovative men’s consumer products, and spreads awareness about prostate cancer risks.
If you’re not interested in the consumer side of the event, or are travelling with children and family, don’t worry, the event has something for everyone from a silent auction and a “hot rod zone” to a BC strongman competition and a stand-up comedy show. Why not visit our Aldergrove hotel location, in November and stop by the event to help show your support for a worthy cause? Tickets start at $10.00 for adults and $6.00 for youth, and, if you’re sporting a supportive moustache, you save $2.00 off your entry fee.
Our hotel chooses to support special events like this one at TRADEX by offering all year round aldergrove hotel specials to attendees and exhibitors of the shows. These specials include free room upgrades and room and entertainment highlights during your stay.
If you’re visiting the Fraser Valley with a significant other, why not try out one of our fun and romance packages which include: accommodation, a welcome basket with champagne and chocolate, late checkout, afterhours access to our pool and free breakfast in our hotel restaurant.
