A Zoomer Is Supposed to be a Boomer with Zip. MIA at the Zoomer Show In Toronto

I don’t know why I go to the Zoomer show every year, perhaps it was because Moses Znaimer was one of the first to recognize this market and has tried to own it. The trouble is, from the music he plays on his radio stations to the stuff on his TV (really, the Benny Hill Show?) to the booths in the zoomer show and the audience visiting it, skews senior, not boomer. I honestly don’t think any of us are thinking about planned purchases of cemetery plots yet.

There were only two interesting products in the place; I liked the idea of these pullout kitchen drawers for aftermarket installation in kitchens. But then this would be good for anyone, not just those who are having trouble bending down and getting to the back of a kitchen, that is how kitchens should have been designed in the first place.
