Auburn home shows Has New OWNERS!  HERE IS THEIR BACK STORY...
Top of Page

For the last many years, Leilani (Lani) Johnston Horan has been the driving force and vision behind the Auburn Home Shows.
However, recently she has handed the reins to Paul & Lisa Patterson, owners of Patterson Events.  They recently revived the adjacent Placerville Home & Garden Show into a rousing success!
For 35 years, they lived in El Dorado County and have always taken pride in treating their neighbors with respect and kindness. That is also the way they do business.  Having worked in the trade show industry for over 40 years, they have collaborated with various top promoters from all over the country.
Their objective is to share our knowledge and expertise with our friends and put on the finest shows in the area!
And, having been exhibitors  for many years, they understand the business from both the promoter's and vendor's perspective. Observing the practices of today's promoters, they have combined traditional values with modern technology to ensure that there is not a compromise on quality. As vendors themselves, they are empathetic, efficient, and successful promoters.
Although you will begin to see some great changes in both show presentation and staffing, Rachel Morgan will remain booth sales manager. 
Please come by the Show Office and greet the new owners.  They are friendly, personable, likeable, and professional.  You will not be disappointed by their demeanors, or how they transform shows into great success for participating vendors, and for the crowds who come to shop, spend, get great ideas and bring the whole family to enjoy the day!
