If you missed last year’s Made in Strathcona tours, you can catch the business owners at the “Meet the Makers Expo” on Saturday June 13 from 11Am – 3PM at MakerLabs at 780 East Cordova.
This must-see event invites the public to learn about Strathcona’s businesses, a chance to meet the makers, enjoy delicious food and drinks, and be a part of the future vision for East Hastings. Strathcona has been home to many successful businesses like Yolk’s, Sunrise Soya Foods, Hootsuite, and Aritzia; and continues to be a hub for many independent mixed-use, manufacturing and retail businesses that continue to thrive. Located between Clark, Venables Street, and Gore Avenue, Strathcona provides an authentic, community oriented experience for visitors, businesses & the public.
The “Meet the Makers Expo” will be hosted at MakersLabs with 17 Strathcona businesses in the sectors of restaurants, cafes, breweries, and locally made goods and services. The expo will include interactive booths, workshops, demonstrations and complimentary samples of the products that are ‘Made in Strathcona’. Bob Rennie, the leading real estate marketer in Vancouver and the marketer behind Strathcona Village (a mixed use development on East Hastings) will be facilitating a panel discussion with four Strathcona businesses to discuss the SBIA’s plans to revitalize East Hastings. During the discussion, stakeholders will weigh in on their personal connection to Strathcona and what they hope to see implemented as part of the revitalization of East Hastings.
“The SBIA is very excited to be hosting the “Meet the Makers Expo” this year,” states Joji Kumagai, Executive Director of the Strathcona Business Improvement Association. “The event will be a great opportunity for the public to connect with businesses in Strathcona, enjoy food and demonstrations, participate in a game of urban design and engage in dialogue about the revitalisation of East Hastings. We want the community have a voice in the change and, at the same time, share innovation and celebrate local, independent talent.”

From 11AM-3PM, the public will meet the founders behind the businesses, ask questions, watch demonstrations and offer input as to what they would like to see.
