Event brings home builders, suppliers, owners together

The Home Builders Association of Greater Springfield is doing something a little different at this year's home show.

According to Louise Henson, HBA executive officer, the home show got its start about 20 years ago. "What makes it different this year," she said, "is that now it's called the Home Builders Association Home and Remodeling Show."

During the three-day run of the show, Feb. 5-7 at the University Plaza Trade Center, visitors will be able to participate in seminars and see the latest in home construction and home improvement products and services.

Seminars will be presented by HBA members, all of whom are professionals in their fields, Henson said. Topic range from interior decorating, to custom home building, remodeling and what a home owner can do to make a home easier to sell before it's put on the market.

Exhibitors at the event will include suppliers, subcontractors, builders and remodelers. The emphasis of the show is not selling, however, but information.

"This is a non-selling show," Henson said. "People won't be bombarding you with products; they'll be explaining things. The show is a place to learn the how-tos and whys of owning a home. The ultimate dream is owning your own home. There'll also be Realtors there who can answer your questions about buying a home.

"We invite everyone in the community to come out to the show. Come see the innovative products and new trends in the industry," she added.

The HBA Home and Remodeling show opens at 1 p.m. Feb. 5. at the University Plaza Trade Center, 625 E. St. Louis. The show continues 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Feb. 6 and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Feb. 7. The cost is $3 per day or, $5 for all three days.


A variety of home products and services will be featured in the 1999 Home Builders Association Home & Remodeling Show, as shown here at the 1998 show.[[In-content Ad]]
