Spring is in the air: It’s Home Expo time in Port Alberni!

Glenwood Sports Centre set to host annual building, renovation and home decor show

Are you getting the bug to upgrade or renovate your home, but don’t quite know where to start or who to call?

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to browse many of the latest innovations in the home improvement industry and talk to experts in the field, all under one roof?

The annual Port Alberni Spring Home Expo offers you that opportunity for free, with over 80 building, renovation and decor exhibitors gathering March 9-10 at the Glenwood Sports Centre.

“If you’re in the market or are just thinking about making changes in your home, it’s a great way to be able to do your comparison shopping,” says Darcy Hope, president of home show producer Evergreen Exhibitions. “It’s sort of like a mall for home improvements for the weekend.”

Here’s some other reasons to check out the Spring Home Expo:

  • Find special deals Not only are there people with expertise you can call on here, many dealers offer special Home Expo pricing on their products and services, or limited availability items, only to attendees.
  • Samples anyone? Looking for portable options to check out how that colour or material looks in your own home environment? Collect your free samples from participating merchants.
  • Watch and learn In-booth demonstrations spotlighting everything from cleaners to food processors make it easier to understand how well certain items can work for you.
  • Discover local products Like to support Alberni Valley businesses and manufacturers? Ask upon your arrival about local vendors at the show.
  • Giveaway time The show features a number of door prizes, contests and promotions in the vendors booths, so enter early and often!

Make your list before you arrive

Whether you’re needing information on materials for that back sundeck project, inquiring about flooring options, are looking for kitchen and bathroom renovation ideas, or are in the market for a new hot tub, chances are you’ll find what you’re looking for at the Home Expo.

“If you’re looking to get your home ready for spring, it’s a great way to find out what you can do,” Darcy says. “It can be a big time saver for you, rather than having to call individual contractors and dealers.”

You’ll meet local experts with whom you can discuss your list of projects, and find options for those finishing touches to help create your dream home.
