With a successful move to a new venue, we welcomed an amazing 20 174 visitors through our doors. Thank you to each and every exhibitor who made this show a success.

A vibrant vibe was pumping through the underground level of the venue. From walking through the beautifully designed entrance, a great selection of inviting stands and home improvement professionals to a coffee aroma inviting you deeper into the expo and taking you to the Gourmet Garage that was inspired by great food and of course all in the company of the talented comedian, Gino Fabbri, an absolute pleasure at this year's expo!
