Last year's show, which was held at the Hazel & J.W. Ruby Community Center at Mylan Park, was once again our best show ever, with 113 exhibitors occupying 170 spaces. Attendance was phenomenal (over 7,000) and we are hoping to make this year's show even better.
The North Central West Virginia Home Builders Association "Home Show 2014" is scheduled to be held on March 7, 8 & 9, 2014. The hours for the show will be from 12pm-7pm on Friday, 10am-7pm on Saturday and 11am-5pm on Sunday.
Most of our exhibitors have expressed their desire to return again this year, and we have given them a priority placement deadline for their booth space of January 6, 2014. All other booth assignments will be made on a first received basis.
We are continuing to offer the outdoor booth spaces which are 20'x20' and have electric available. The price is the same as the indoor 10'x10' spaces. Tents/Canopies are not provided.
We will again be using a setup schedule based on booth location, which will be sent with your executed contract and begin on Wednesday, March 5, 2014.
Our promotional package will include advertising on local radio stations, in local newspapers, on local television, on the web and other mediums. Our promotional package will exceed $45,000.00. This has proven to be a very effective way to draw Interested traffic to the show. We are once again working with West Virginia Radio Corporation (WVAQ, WAJR, WKKW, WFBY), the Dominion Post, WBOY-TV, Comcast and Home Improvement Magazine on Home Show packages for our exhibitors. This will allow our exhibitors to do additional advertising customized for their businesses at a greatly reduced rate. We are also continuing our web presence with the help of Asayo Creative/WV Radio, which will provide much more information about the show. There are a few spaces still available on this year's "Show Bag". Please let us know if you are interested in taking one of these spots.
We still believe that you would be hard pressed to find any marketing event that will provide you with this type of exposure at such a small cost. If you have not participated before, there is no better time than now to start. If you haven't participated in a while, there is no better time than now to come back.
