Free Stands at Home & Garden Show for Community Groups

Free Stands at Nelson Home & Garden Show for Community Groups

Organisers of the upcoming Nelson Home & Garden Show, running 29 September – 1 October at the Saxton Stadium in Stoke, have announced today that they have two free exhibitor stands to give away to local community groups.

Show director, Josh Shanley said, “This is a chance for deserving community organisations to participate a popular and upbeat event free of charge. There are two stands up for grabs, one indoors and one outdoors. All applicants need to do is contact us and say why they think they deserve a free stand. The two organisations that put forward the best reasons will receive free exhibiting space at the Show.”

“Last year the Show attracted over 8,200 people, so it’s a fantastic chance for the successful community groups to promote themselves to the public. The Saxton Stadium will be packed with products and inspiration for beautifying the home and garden, loads of show-only specials and free daily Ask an Expert sessions.”

“Cat and Jeremy, fan favourites from the Villa Wars series of The Block NZ, will be there over the weekend. Cat will judge an interior design competition on the Saturday and, along with Jeremy, will give a free ‘Ask an Expert’ discussion at 12.30 pm on ‘The Block NZ - Inside Story’. They will both be joined by Resident Builder, Peter Wolfkamp for the talk at the same time on Sunday. One lucky show visitor will win the show prize, a $10,000 Wholesale Landscapes dream makeover. We love pulling all that together for our show visitors, but it’s also really nice to be able to support local community groups when we can too.” Mr. Shanley said.

Submissions will need to be in to Jade Promotions by Monday 25 September. The Nelson Home & Garden Show will run for three days from Friday 29 September - Sunday 1 October 2017 at the Saxton Stadium.
