Make A List. Take some time before coming to the home show to jot down projects you'd like to tackle. Browse the exhibitor list to see which vendors interest you the most.
At Each Entrance... be sure to pick up a home show program to direct you around the show grounds.
Check out the map for the location of your favorite exhibitor, feature or where to win a prize.
Attend a Seminar. A big part of the Home Show is the ability to find people who know how to build, remodel, design, landscape and provide the products and services that you need. Another way is to attend a seminar to tap into that expertise. All seminars are free.
Don't Just Browse. Talk to Vendors. If you are interested in a product or service, leave your name and phone number and ask the vendor to follow up with you after the home show.
The Show is Big! Over 1,000 exhibits with different levels. Come early and plan on spending most of the day. Take a break for lunch at one of the many food vendors. Be sure to visit all thebuildings and Pavilions.
Wear Comfortable Shoes. The show is indoors and outdoors, so dress appropriately.
Pick a Meeting Place... in case you get separated from your party. We suggest the satellite office in the corner of the Sierra Building.
Bring Blueprints... floor plans, sketches and measurements to the show. Many vendors are prepared to take your information.
Get Ready to Shop! There are many items that you can purchase right at the home show. In addition many vendors offer special home show pricing so be prepared to purchase while attending the home show.
Enter To Win!! Many prizes are given away, just for applying, try your luck.
