The Auckland Home Show to Open its Doors on September 10th

The 2014 Auckland Home Show, the largest home, living and renovation event in Australasia is set to open its doors on Wednesday 10th to Sunday 14th September at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland.
Renowned for its extensive showcase of high-end and innovative products, the Auckland Home Show features more than 500 exhibitors from kitchen and bathroom suppliers, appliances furnishing, garden landscaping and life-enhancing products.

Exhibition and Events New Zealand Exhibition Director Amanda Magnus says that, “Auckland Home Show’s 35th show anniversary will be the biggest one yet!”
“We’ve had to increase our exhibition space by almost 500msq so we can give our visitors even more products and services to experience. We are also presenting many new exhibitors who are bringing along fantastic new ideas to showcase.” She says.

Having expanded its exhibition space in 2014 the Auckland Home Show is bringing more of what home owners and renovators around the country want to see. And while many of the exhibitors are returning after success in previous years, a large number are exhibiting for the first time – promising something fresh for first timers as well as long-time show devotees.

“As always we have huge line-up of events happening at the Auckland Home Show and we feel that visitors are going to be wowed the variety of products, services and workshops on offer this year,” says Magnus.

Must attend seminars and features in 2014 include Town and Country Seminars, offering insight into fast-track energy savings, solar technologies, and tips needed to give your home an 8-star energy rating.

The Design Renovate Decorate Seminars proudly brought to you by Resene, is where you’ll discover the latest in design, colour trends, lighting, bathroom and kitchen design and plenty more.
The stunning Auckland Landscape Supplies Walk of Gardens will inspire with a fresh crop of garden concepts, where visitors can stroll through the gardens and chat to the creators on matters of techniques, products and advice.

Westpac Street of Houses, landscaped by Green Gopher is a full scale walk-through feature of the latest innovations in landscaping, materials, plants, construction and lightweight or portable buildings.

These seminars and features are free and will offer a great opportunity to get advice from prominent designers and spokespeople including Finesse Renovations Murray Kee, Interior Designer Amanda Neill, and Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment’s own Dahna Bond.
The popular SMEG Cooking Theatre is fronted by SMEG Ambassador and Masterchef New Zealand finalist Vanessa Baxter, cooking up a storm alongside celebrity guest chefs Sean Armstrong, Mark Nicholson and Jono Beattie.

Hot on the heels of its successful launch last year, the Auckland Home Show APP is available to download and includes competitions, maps, show specials, new products, timetables and links to social media. The Home Show APP eShowbag alone delivers users well over $50,000 in renovation savings.

“We sold out of exhibitor space more than 10 weeks before the event,” says Magnus.
“I’m positive that this year is going to be the best yet for the Auckland Home Show; a show that is going to inspire encourage and rekindle any visitor’s love for design, renovation and the home. “
