 The June 5th expo will help young Latinas and their families lessen the stress of planning and preparing for their perfect Quince celebration.

Los Angeles – June 1, 2011. Judith Chavez, a resident of the City of Orange, had no idea how overwhelming planning a Quinceañera would be; however “Ever since Alexis was little, I wondered what her party would be like, and since I didn’t have a Quinceañera myself, I knew I would stop at nothing to ensure that my daughter’s special day was unforgettable.”

As many Latinos that keep the Quinceañera celebration a tradition in their families know—cooks, bakers, and seamstresses in the family used to offer their services as gifts and contributions. However, with more party planning services available at lower costs, families are looking to lessen the stress that comes with preparing a party and to allow all invited to enjoy the festivities. With time and energy running out, Judith has decided to employ professionals for her daughter’s June 2012 Quinceañera.

According to Liliana Zambrano, Senior Director of Sales for Hispanic media company El Clasificado, more families are opting for this choice as, nowadays, it’s common for families to want practicality at the best possible price without sacrificing quality. “The family experience is priceless,” Zambrano states, “But when you can to hire a professional who can provide the services you need at a great price it’s an opportunity you have to take.”

Anticipating the high demand for Quinceañera party planning services, El Clasificado created the “Quinceañ Expo and Fashion Show” events in 2006 to help families organize the traditional gala by providing attendees with a location to meet a variety of Quince product and service providers. “Since the launch of our Expo events,” declares Liliana, “the demand from both the public and party service providers has progressed so much that El Clasificado will host 5 expositions in different cities of Southern California this year.”

The next Expo and Fashion Show held on Sunday, June 5, 2011 at the Crowne Plaza Anaheim Resort will allow attendees to meet numerous party product and service providers including: reception venue rentals, caterers, DJ’s, hairstylists, and a wide variety of party services. In addition, a fashion show by David’s Bridal, Roxy’s Bridal, and The Men’s Wearhouse & MW Tux, will showcase modern gown designs for the Quinceañeras as well as dress and tuxedo options for the court. Also, a raffle will provide attendees a chance to win a custom Quinceañera gown valued at $1,000 or an iPad.

The “ Expo and Fashion Show” is presented by El Clasificado and stage sponsor Verizon Wireless “My Fabulous Quince,” with the additional support of the Aquarium of the Pacific, Sheraton Park Hotel at the Anaheim Resort, and the media sponsorship of Latino 96.3.
