The Manitoba Electrical Expo is pleased to announce a partnership with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for the 2015 Electrical Expo.

Members will have an opportunity to have their picture taken with players, and non-members will have a chance to hear about membership opportunities, and even join up at the Expo. The co–promotion is a great way for us to offer a little extra entertainment to the show and allow the Bombers the opportunity to make their upcoming pre-season ticket promotion available to all who attend.

The Electrical Expo will "Kick Off" with a beautiful hot breakfast on the morning of May 20th with special guest Kyle Walters, General Manager of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as our featured speaker.

The breakfast will be held on the main floor of the Assiniboia downs, right next door to the Expo, at 8:00 am. Tickets will go on sale shortly and will be available from our Electrical Association website. Watch for details coming soon!!
