HBA Home Remodeling Expo Opens with Media Attention

The HBA of Greater Springfield’s 2011 Home Remodeling Expo Opened Friday to larger than anticipated crowds amid positive local media attention.  Coverage on KOLR/KOZL (watch video by clicking here), the Springfield Business Journal, and the Springfield News-Leader (early-week and late-week) helped set the stage for a successful weekend.

It was a busier-than typical opening Friday at the Home Builders Association of Greater Springfield’s annual Home Remodeling Expo. The annual event opened at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds for the weekend of October 14-16 to strong crowds. Organizers say that bodes well for strong crowds on Saturday and Sunday. Below, get a feel for vendor setup and opending day of the show by watching a couple of quick highlight videos:

Last year’s EXPO was named BEST HOME or INDUSTRY TRADE SHOW for 2010 by the National Association of Home Builders.  Building on last year’s success, the 2011 version promises everything consumers have come to expect – and a whole lot of what’s new!
