Auckland Home Show starts this morning and online pre-sales suggest that interest from the home owning public is undiminished from last year’s near-record.
Running from today, September 5th until Sunday 9th September at the ASB Showgrounds, more than 500 companies will show off the very latest in building, renovation, furnishing and home improvement.
An expected 45,000 visitors will attend the show, looking for products and advice, many taking the opportunity to talk about product benefits, costs and risks, before they commit to them.
Organisers say that up to $100million will be spent at the show or as a result of product enquiries made over the five days.
Show Highlights include:
