It’s January, and the start of another new year! It’s also only one week until the Winnipeg renovation show — which runs Jan. 12-14 at the RBC Convention Centre.
This show has always kicked off the new year for home renovations, and Manitobans traditionally spend more on home renovations per capita than any other province. Manitoba continues to be the only province where more money is spent on renovations than new-home construction on a consistent basis.
The Winnipeg renovation show provides consumers the chance to visit with hundreds of renovation suppliers all under one roof. It is also unique in that it provides a one-stop venue for consumers to test the renovation market and see, touch and feel what’s new and exciting in home renovation.
The lifestyle stage is featuring special guest speakers — including Bryan Baeumler from HGTV — and other presentations on outdoor renovations, renovation financing and home entertaining. The design studio will provide great demonstrations on the latest trends in home design. There is a full slate of presenters throughout the show, with plenty of valuable information to share with you.
Your ticket to the show gets you in to see all of the entertaining and interesting stage presenters, as well as the chance to visit the huge selection of fantastic show exhibitors.
The ask-a-renovator booth will be staffed by professional Manitoba Home Builders’ Association RenoMark renovators, who are available to answer questions about an upgrade or renovation project you may be planning or dreaming about. These professional renovators can provide you with a free, 15-minute consultation to help steer you in the right direction towards a new project for your home. Whether you are a do-it-your-selfer or looking for a professional to help, the ask-a-renovator booth is the perfect starting point for your next renovation project.
No matter how big or small, no matter if you’re committed to or just considering a project, make sure you start your next renovation project off on the right foot with professional advice. Come to the show and you will be able to pick the brains of some of Manitoba’s finest renovators.
Be sure to get your tickets soon so that you don’t miss out on the first big home-renovation event of the year.
Lannie McInnes is president of the Manitoba Home Builders’ Association.
