Waikato HomeXPO a Win Win for Home Owners and Businesses

Thousands of home owners were treated to a fantastic array of inspiration, innovation and renovation ideas and products at the three day Waikato HomeXPO.

More than 11,000 visitors to the second boutique HomeXPO, part of the revamped New Waikato Show held at Claudelands Events Centre, took advantage of unbeatable prices for quality products and services while exhibitors were reaping the benefits of a healthy building market.

New home owners, those planning to build or renovate had direct access to manufacturers and business owners, free advice from industry and the chance to experience a vast range of innovations under one roof during the event.

Straight Paint director Scott Cambie and Raglan Flooring Xtra owners Andy Harlow were among the 60 exhibitors who are looking forward to months of healthy business activity as a result of the HomeXPO.

"The strong inquiry for our services will help us to fill our books over the winter months," said Scott Cambie from Straight Paint. "It was the perfect opportunity to establish new customers to join our 'clients for life' philosophy."

The Waikato HomeXPO was staged by Hannah & Associates who this year celebrate the 30th anniversary of the country’s largest consumer event of its type, the Waikato Home &Garden Show which is scheduled to be held at the Claudelands Event Centre from 2-5 October 2014.
