Joburg to host Grand Designs Live expo in 2010

Grand Designs Live is a home renovation exhibition that claims to cover it all. Built on the success of the award-winning UK consumer event, it will take place at the Coca-Cola Dome, Johannesburg, 21-23 May 2010.

As a TV show, it has brought stylish yet accessible home renovation and design solutions to viewers around the world. Now the series is coming to Johannesburg and promises to give South Africans the opportunity to be inspired by the vast number of ways to turn a house into a home.

“It is not only a long-running TV programme, it's become a formidable international brand recognised by people all over the globe,” explains Ben Gannon, exhibition director for Grand Designs Live. “This initiative will spark some great ideas for visitors to go and create unique improvements in their own homes.”

The exhibition will have a host of different shows under one roof, with six dedicated areas showcasing the best in interiors, technology, build/DIY, kitchens, bathrooms and gardens.
