CONTENT about YOUR business

  • Each Home Show booth package is linked with ADVERTISING INCHES you choose to use to promote your business. We provide a set number of advertising inches, mostly like 30” per every 10’x10’ booth, and then you are able to promote your products and services to the consumer AND tell them to come and see you at the show.  Many exhibitors have Home Show Specials and grab this opportunity to reach the marketplace with a reduced rate package on the advertising portion of their Home Show buy.
  • In addition, THE HOME SHOW SPECIAL SECTION is filled with additional advertising opportunities for the more than 35 sponsors each year who we offer customized booth and advertising packages.  This section publishes in both the Courier & Press and the Henderson Gleaner on the Thursday prior to the show serving as a preview of what is in store for show attendees.  Show maps, stage schedules, articles on presenters, special featured areas of the show are throughout this large broadsheet section!  Our special section can feature YOUR business, just ask us for details!
