MONDAY MORNING MESSAGE
FROM THE CEO
MICHAEL C. STOSKOPF
FALL NOVI HOME SHOW KICKS OFF 2021-2022 SEASON!
Last weekend, October 8-10, the HBA of Southeastern Michigan kicked off the 2021-2022 Home Show season with its annual Fall Show at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.
I am pleased to report that attendance and exhibitor participation was on-par with our 2019, the last time we were able to produce this show. We were also able to successfully work, once again, with the Michigan Manufactured Housing Association (MMHA). As has been done for over 5 years, MMHA was able to bring in 3 models as “features” integrated into our floorplan.
As you can see from the adjacent photo, many attendees filled the aisles and all of the exhibitors I spoke with indicated that they were booking solid follow-up leads for every manner of residential home improvement, remodeling and even new construction.
Our next home show is one of our longest running events. The Winter Edition of the Novi Home Show will be held January 21-23, 2022, as always, at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.
This is our most well-attended show and, by the looks of early reservations, will be one of our largest in several years.
If your business sells directly to existing or potential homeowners, I strongly recommend that you plan to participate in the January Home Show. With thousands of attendees crammed into 3 days, this is a terrific and proven method to acquire solid leads and get your 2022 started right!
As an HBA member, you also receive 10% OFF of published rates for your booth, up to $300 per show.
Call Brian Starrs today at (248) 202-7300 or email him at: firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your booth! As always, you can also get more information about the show at: https://www.novihomeshow.com/the-novi-home-show-winter.html
