Waikato HomeXPO: Autumn extravaganza of product and services

March 31st 2014

Waikato HomeXPO - Autumn extravaganza of product and services at direct to the consumer prices

It’s time to plant spring bulbs, test the smoke alarms, clean the gutters, stack the firewood and prepare the home for a cosy and comfortable winter.

For three days next week, thousands of existing and future home-owners are expected at the Waikato HomeXPO at Claudelands Arena in Hamilton. Visitors wanting their homes to be warm and comfortable and after expert advice and direct from the manufacturer prices will be spoiled for choice.

Organisers of this year’s Waikato HomeXPO are confident of visitor numbers well in excess of the 15,000 who attended the boutique HomeXPO last year.

Exhibition director Rebecca Hannah said New Zealand was experiencing the biggest construction boom in 40 years with the Waikato identified as one of the busiest regions after Auckland and Christchurch.

“Four leading Waikato new home building companies, Urbo homes, Cambridge Homes, Design Builders and Platinum Homes will showcase their new home designs and visitors will have the opportunity to talk directly with the company owners. There will also be hundreds of exciting new ideas and products for building, renovating and decorating including the latest bathroom products and kitchen designs, double glazing, heating, renovation experts, flooring and paint concepts and spa pools.”

Ms Hannah said visitors were expected to be quick to snap up great deals for building, renovating and a diverse range of home improvements over the three day event. Those looking to book a sun filled break away during the winter months will be spoiled for choice with Classic Escapes special prices.

She said a massive prize pool of more than $100,000 including a Swift GLX auto is also up for grabs.

One of Hamilton’s most popular cafes Hazel Hayes will be setting up a cafe at the HomeXPO serving a variety of the freshest handmade food with a strong focus on seasonal, quality and organic ingredients.

The Waikato HomeXPO is part of the revamped new Waikato Show which celebrates the talent and diversity of the Waikato community with children’s events, a cultural village of ethnic foods, craft fair and environmental and wellbeing exhibitions plus a focus on clubs and creativities. Something for everyone.
