A Tribute to Your Home

There's no place like home. It's your pride and joy, the place that evokes a sigh of relief when you walk through the door, and where your heart is. The 2017 Port Elizabeth HOMEMAKERS Expo celebrates your home with the theme, “A Tribute to Your Home”.
You’ll find all the inspiration, advice, great new ideas, and thousands of products – everything you need to show your love for your home - at this year’s Port Elizabeth HOMEMAKERS Expo.

The show brings you top-notch exhibitors showcasing an array of beautiful products and professional service, all under one roof. The expo provides you with the perfect opportunity to browse, compare, and purchase all the things you need for your home and garden projects.

The Port Elizabeth HOMEMAKERS Expo is packed with specials, deals, competitions, and features you’ll find nowhere else.

Win a CAR!
HOMEMAKERS Expo is taking it up a notch by giving away a shiny new Datsun Go!
The fuel efficient Go is great for zipping around town, it is great for going to the beach, but the greatest thing about it, is being the envy of all your neighbours.
To enter you will need to GO to the show!
This year HOMEMAKERS Expo is making your home (and car) dreams come true.

See how Joff, PE’s very own graffiti artist turns a bare wall into a local Port Elizabeth brag wall. See him actively bring his art to life during Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the show. Graffiti is an up and coming art genre that combats inner city decay.

NMMU Design Students
The 3rd Year NMMU Design students will showcase their enjoyable and communicative display inspired by the idealistic image of a child's depiction of what a house looks like; a house, hedge and happy clouds.

The students then also designed an interactive facade on the house structure that then poses the question "What makes your house a home?" and then an array of answers can be answered by looping colourful wool around the pegs, eventually creating a colourful layered facade.

See this display as you enter the 2nd hall from the Food Court.
