The 2013 HBA Home Show (sponsored by Meek’s) was an unqualified success. More than 13,500 visitors enjoyed all of the new booths and the new booth locations. Attendance was up and people were extremely interested in speaking with vendors to discuss projects they were ready to get started on – a great sign for the local construction industry. In addition, more than 4,400 HBA Event Magazine were distributed at the Home Show and more than 4,400 impressions and 600+ reads of the digital version of the same publication were recorded as of January 28nd. This was the first year the digital version of the magazine was made available well in advance of the Home Show and it proved to be quite popular.
2013 was the year of change for the Home Show – all vendors were in a different location. Even though change is quite painful, the outcome was worth it. This year was the third time all vendors were required to change locations and the end result is always a fantastic looking show with multiple new displays.
