The Home Show is a great way to promote our business to the public. We found it a great success in years past and this year was also fantasic!Judy
We were overwhelmed with the response and interest we had before, during and after the expo due to the extra advertising packages we purchased as well as the support during the Expo from the staff members. As we don’t advertise at all throughout the year, this was a massive event for us and we have already seen the rewards.Chris
