New England Burials at Sea Exhibiting at AARP Life @50+ Show

MARSHFIELD, Mass. – New England Burial at Sea will exhibit at AARP's Spring 2014 Life@50+ event being May, 8-10 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

The event is open to the public. AARP caters to over 90 million members across the USA who are 50-plus years of age.

"We are delighted to have been hand selected to participate in this year's Boston AARP Life@50+ event after a seven year review from AARP," said NEBAS founder Capt. Brad White. "They have to be very particular to choose well respected vendors who help enhance the quality of their well established brand - we have been vetted and feel it's a great opportunity for us to explain our services to their customer base whether for themselves or the elders in their families."

White added, "As the culture of death and dying is changing at a rapid clip, scatterings and full body burials at sea are now more in vogue as a celebratory and enhanced alternative for a person's final wish. It makes sense for us to meet the expected attendance of over 40,000 show goers at this highly publicized Boston event to share our available programs to the public so they can then ask for it by name at their local funeral home during their pre need and at need planning meetings."

In addition, White is offering a free and informative Boston Harbor Sunset Cruise (Where light refreshments will be served) at 7 p.m. May 8 to the first 30 licensed funeral directors (and their guests) that reserve by April 1.

"What better way to show our sea burial certified funeral directors, and those that wish to become certified, what and how we do it while touring historic Boston Harbor," White said, adding, "if more than 30 attendee’s sign up for the free cruise, it is easy to add more boats."

The Boston AARP three day event is the largest held annually for AARP with over 400 vendors and guest speakers Laura Bush, Whoopi Goldberg, Jay Leno and more. Life@50+ has additional dynamic speakers for Boston including music superstar and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Linda Ronstadt, author and real-life inspiration for the movie "Captain Phillips," Captain Richard Phillips and HGTV stars of "Kitchen Cousins" and "Cousins Undercover," Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri.
