The 68th Annual Home Show is now the WABA Home & Garden Show! We are excited to add outdoor living specialties to the Show this year – which will expand our already dynamic and successful show.
The Garden Show addition will feature landscaping, lawn and garden related exhibitors on display in the Convention Hall. The home improvement and building related exhibitors will be located in Expo Hall.
We will be assigning exhibitors in different locations this year to keep the Show looking fresh and new. The floorplan has been redesigned to allow for larger and more strategically placed booths throughout the show – including planned placement of retail sales booths in both halls. The floorplan has also been colorized to help you find the right-sized booth, in the right location, for you to exhibit your products and services.
Booth reservations will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservation forms will be date and time stamped as they are received. Booth confirmations will be sent out by May 31, 2021 and contracts will be mailed out no later than the end of June 2021. A 50% deposit will be due with the booth reservation request and payment in full is due by September 15, 2021. Reservations are not guaranteed until they are paid in full. Booths paid in full by July 31, 2021 will receive a 5% discount.
The first 10 days of registration is open to WABA members only. WABA members also receive a 10% discount on their booth (up to $200) and an extra 5% discount if paid in full by July 31, 2021.
We look forward to having a successful 2022 Home & Garden Show and invite you to join us!
