Tourism Development Manager André Nabors and Division representative Ashlee Kirk promoted North Carolina as a retirement destination at the Ideal Living Resort & Retirement Expo in Long Island, N.Y., this past weekend. The Expo drew approximately 600 potential retirees from the region interested in exploring opportunities and conversing with exhibitors from across the Southeast.
Attendees talked with experts from towns and community developers to gain insights and get answers to help plan, design and enjoy their retirement. North Carolina has consistently been one of the most requested states by the attendees. The Division attended the Expo to continue its efforts to promote the N.C. Certified Retirement Community Program, which consists of Asheboro, Lumberton, Marion, Mount Airy, Sanford, Pittsboro and Eden.
