52nd Annual Tri-State Home Show Set For March 2-4

Friday, February 16, 2018

The Tri-State Home Show, hosted annually by the Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga and presented by EPB Fiber Optics, will kick off its 52nd event edition on March 2, 3 and 4 at the Chattanooga Convention and Trade Center. Hours for the Home Show will be 10 a.m.-8 p.m. on March 2 and 3, and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on March 4.

According to HBAGC Executive Officer Terry Greene, there will be more than 300 vendors and 500 exhibit spaces at this year’s Home Show.  

“If you need it for your home, you’ll find it at the Tri-State Home Show," said Mr. Greene. "There’s an impressive blend of new and returning exhibitors that attendees will truly enjoy. Local and area businesses will display the latest trends in landscaping, basements, new windows, green energy, home building, remodeling, financing, spas and pools, electronics, and so much more.”

Mr. Greene stressed the value of meeting professionals “one-on-one” to ask questions, gain knowledge and learn more about specific products and services. 

“Whether you’re building or renovating, I can’t think of a better place to be get a jump start on home projects, inside or out,” Mr. Greene said. “It’s all under one roof at a great location, plus there’s the added bonus of talking to experts who can answer questions right on the spot.”  

New to this year’s Tri-State Home Show is the “Whova Home Show Mobile App” that allows event visitors to download information on their mobile devices on all of the Home Show vendors, schedule appointments, and research products and services ahead of time. 

“We’re very excited about the Whova Home Show App,” Mr. Greene said. “It takes less than 60 seconds to download on a smartphone and once it’s there, Home Show attendees can do their homework ahead of time. Given today’s technology, it just makes sense to make the Home Show experience as user-friendly as possible, and we believe the mobile app helps make that happen.” 

Admission to the Tri-State Home Show is $8 and there is no charge for anyone 16 or younger. Senior Day is Friday, March 2. Anyone bringing a canned good will receive $1 off and military veterans will also receive a discount. More information is available at www.homeshowchattanooga.com
