April 4, 5, & 6, 2014
Carlson Center – Fairbanks, Alaska
A Woman’s Affair took place at the Carlson Center April 5-7, 2013. This was the 12th year for the annual event and it has grown into a highly anticipated spring happening. Next year’s dates are scheduled for April 4, 5, & 6, 2014.
A Woman’s Affair, sponsored by the Law Office of Rita T. Allee, is a trade show organized specifically for women about women. This total women’s show is a place to make contact with women owned businesses, discuss important health issues, get tips for managing finances, become aware of new career opportunities and education possibilities, see the latest fashions, enjoy a makeover or massage, pick up new home-decorating ideas and gardening information, or discover a new hobby…all under one roof.
The 2013 event was a great success. 166 different businesses and agencies participated and the two-day event had a public attendance of nearly 4200, our biggest weekend ever! Vendor response was very positive and many have already signed up for the 2014 show. The public loved the “feel” of the show and enjoyed the opportunity of gathering educational information and shopping. The seminars and health fair that took place throughout the weekend were a huge attraction and were well received by all who attended.
Friday Night Wine Tasting
Friday evening, April 5, opened with a wine tasting from 6pm to 9pm. The evening was sponsored by Image Optical and the tasting was organized by Gold Hill Imported Beer and Fine Wines and K&L Distributors. Like the rest of the weekend, the event was a huge success and we can’t wait to do it again next year!
Health at A Woman’s Affair
Each year a Natural Health section is incorporated into the show. It’s a great opportunity to increase public awareness of choices for natural health and healing in the Fairbanks Community. This year’s Natural Health section was sponsored by Sunshine Health Foods. New to this year’s show was a health fair sponsored by Fairbanks Urgent Care. Their wonderful addition offered services such as Blood Pressure, Height/Weight, BMI/Body Fat %, Cholesterol Check, Glucose Check, Pulmonary Function Testing, and Physical Therapy Advice.
Women’s shows are hot and sweeping the nation in every major city. A Woman’s Affair is your chance to market your business or agency to a large cross section of our community in a single weekend.
Where is it taking place? The Carlson Center. The Center has over 43,000 sq. ft. of available space and is the Interior’s premier location for trade shows.
When is it going to happen? April 4-6, 2014. Daylight is returning to the interior and spring is right around the corner. A great time to start planning summer projects. A great place to showcase yourself and jump-start your spring business.
What about advertising? $7,000 will be spent on advertising A Woman’s Affair. All three medias will be used, TV, Radio, and the newspaper. In addition there will be media co-sponsors to the event that will raise our advertising budget to well over $10,000.

The Natural Health Fair at A Woman’s Affair is a great opportunity to increase public awareness of choices for natural health and healing in the Fairbanks Community.
The addition of The Natural Health Fair turned into a win win situation for all. Natural Health businesses have the opportunity to participate in a pre-existing show with a successful attendance history. The overall show prospered from additional attendance generated by the public interested in natural health products and services offered in our community.
We are looking for a wide variety of natural health professionals who would like to promote their businesses and/or products in an open and widely publicized event.
If you are a natural health professional and would like to promote your business, you won’t want to miss the “Natural Health Fair” at the “A Woman’s Affair” Register now!
