More than 1,500 attended the inaugural expo last year, and more than 500 hopeful quinceañeras registered at the show, surpassing all expectations. This magazine is unique to the Tampa Bay area; no other magazine provides local information about the Quince tradition. "We saw the growing need that existed in the market and this magazine and expo provides the link between consumers and businesses in the "special occasions" industry, says Giovanni Gutierrez, sales and marketing manager.
