The North East Home Expo returns to the Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough later this year, providing a premier showcase to Teesside home owners looking to make their dream home visions a reality.
Keen to build on the success of 2015, the expo has expanded further, after the feedback from visitors who visited the inaugural event held last year.
The North East Home Expo gives visitors the opportunity to chat informally with professionals from the build, design and interior businesses, allowing them to meet the experts who will offer impartial advice on any issues that home owners may have with their home improvements, renovation projects, DIY mishaps, or on work they are considering in the future.
It also allows members of the public to learn more about self-building a new house, an option that more and more people are looking in to as an alternative, rather than moving or expanding their existing home.
With free entry to visitors on both Friday and Saturday, October 7 and 8, there will be a wealth of experience offered by the exhibitors already involved, with more space now open to interested companies looking to showcase their work.
There is also a growing demand for seminars on both days with a scheduled programme of informative talks and presentations to be compiled soon.
As each exhibitor is confirmed there will be promotion of their involvement on social media, along with inclusion in the expo brochure given to each visitor over the two days.
Jonathan Park, owner of 2020 Lifestyle, the company behind the expo concept, said: “For me the idea was a totally a selfish one, spending a lot of time working on other people’s houses I never really got the opportunity to meet other tradespeople.
“I wanted to devise a show where the public would get to learn more about the do’s & don’ts of home improvement, but also to actually get to know the person you are trusting to do the work on your house.
“For me as a business it’s a perfect opportunity to get to know the other exhibitors, from a wide range of design, home build & renovating companies, that I could perhaps collaborate on with future projects.
“We still have some spaces available for more local exhibitors to get involved, we are allowing two businesses from each business category which gives members of the public a choice. The predicted footfall is already up on last year with more visitor bookings for Friday & Saturday.”
The expo is looking to grow further over the next five years, building on the relationship with Middlesbrough FC and the wide range of exhibitors that are now finding the expo a great marketing opportunity.
