Greetings from the Riverbend Sports Complex!
We are coming to you today from the Quinceañera Magazine – Utah expo, a lively and colorful event full of fun and celebratory themes. The quinceañera is a very, very important cultural celebration for Latin American girls, marking the transition to womanhood and stretching back to around 550 B.C.
As the event sponsor, VIP Limousine arrived early in the day with two limousines to flank the main stage: the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and the Hummer H2. We had guests getting in and out of them all day long, checking out the luxurious and stylish interiors and modern exteriors. Additionally, several of the models as well as the emcee took pictures with the vehicles.
Quinceañera Magazine – Utah, as the host, set up the stage with a catwalk for several rounds of models, showing off some modern and some traditional styles of dresses for all of the girls. They also featured some young and skillful dancers set to the best possible music for a party: Latin.
One particularly incredible thing about this expo was the number of different companies featured here with their products and services. Here’s a list of some which are featured:
- Joyeria Uribe
- Sunny Day’s Cakes
- Princess House
- U-nique Floral
- Ataly Stylo’s
- Rumba Libre Band
- Montenegro Events
- Mi Ranchito
- Complete Weddings and Events

A great thing about these expos is they allow local companies to come together and showcase the best of what they have to offer. For important events, it is very helpful to know where you can turn for particular services, and furthermore to know that they will meet or exceed your expectations to make the day special. This is crucial in the quinceañera market. That’s why as one of these companies, VIP Limousine is committed to world class limousine service and providing VIP treatment from start to finish.
