The Staycation Expo returns to Devonshire Mall this weekend, encouraging local residents to explore the great things to see and do in their own backyard. The Staycation Expo, running from May 12th to 14th, will focus on helping local residents explore their own backyard by planning a Staycation featuring 45+ exhibitors profiling key attractions, tour options, wineries, craft breweries, and summer festivals and more exhibiting inside Devonshire Mall.

“Through this collaborative marketing partnership with Devonshire Mall, who has generously opened their doors to welcome us, our tourism partners are afforded the opportunity to showcase some of the most unique things to explore in our region to the Devonshire Mall patrons,” said Gordon Orr, CEO of Tourism Windsor Essex. “This weekend, thousands will learn more about our region and be able to share those messages with their friends and together explore more of our region.”

A new aspect of the Staycation Expo is the Staycation Passport, an incentive program designed to help visitors explore all the stops at the Staycation Expo. Visitors can pick up a passport as they enter the Expo and get it stamped at eight different exhibitors displayed at Devonshire Mall for the chance to win a $500 Devonshire Mall gift card. More details are available at visitwindsoressex.com/staycation.

In addition, Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island released their 2022/2023 Official Visitor Guide Wednesday afternoon. The guide will be distributed locally and through digital campaigns across Ontario as a major marketing lure to bring visitors to our region.

“This year’s guide will stand out on display racks and on coffee tables, featuring an experience in our vineyards showing friends and family coming together for a unique buyable experience. More than ever, people are looking for unique experiences and tours when they plan a trip, and this year’s guide is packed with 92 pages of unique opportunities available in Windsor Essex.” Orr said. “Our industry was hit the hardest during the COVID-19 pandemic and will take the longest to recover, and the release of the visitor guide is a positive step in the reopening of the industry.’

Locals are encouraged to visit the Staycation Expo this weekend to pick up their own copy of the 2022/2023 Official Visitor Guide, or to view a digital version of the 2022/2023 Official Visitor Guide online here.
