Home and Reno Show in Penticton this weekend

Event takes place March 3 and 4 at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre

The Canadian Home Builders’ Association South Okanagan hosts the 23rd Annual Home and Reno Show on March 3 to 4 at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre.

“If you’re planning an upcoming renovation, remodel, outdoor project or innovative additions to your home this weekend is for you,” says Carol Sudchak, CHBA executive officer. “The South Okanagan’s continued growth is reflected in the 23rd annual show’s exhibitors. We’ve been sold out since January, with a very long waitlist for businesses to exhibit. We’ve got new building and design companies, and suppliers of patio, deck and pool products, adding to this year’s roster. The boom continues in our region and industry.”

Over 130 booths representing local and national companies include realtors and real estate agencies, home builders, land developers, home security providers, renewable energy services, heating and cooling, trade contractors, product and material manufacturers, building product suppliers, lending institutions, insurance providers, and service professionals will fill the 28,000 sq. ft. ballroom.

New this year, B.C. Housing is hosting a Continuing Professional Development workshop for licensed builders. The Building Smart with B.C. Energy Step Code takes place on Saturday in Meeting Room 2/3. Advanced registration is required. More information is available online at www.BCHousing.org.

The show, sponsored by Parker’s Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, Jeep, is open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Spectra managed Penticton Trade and Convention Centre. Admission is $4, which includes entry to win a $2,500 closet and blind package from Skyview Closets & Blinds. Visit the free Kid’s Fun Zone, sponsored by Modu-Loc and Par-T-Perfect, in the North Lobby.
