“The expo is an opportunity to meet home experts face-to-face instead of just online,” notes Kelly Wells, marketing coordinator for Wisconn Valley Media Group.

In past couple of ye4ars, homeowners have been spending more time at home due to COVID-19 and have noticed more and more things they would like to change or improve about their living spaces.

They will need help in updating or renovating their home inside and out. Vendors who are involved in any step of the process of indoor and outdoor home improvement are welcome to exhibit.

And vendors who are involved in the behind-the-scenes, such as purchasing a home or seeking financial support, are welcome to exhibit as well.

A great opportunity

“It’s a great opportunity for those looking for everything from full remodeling projects to basic updates to connect with businesses from throughout Southeastern Wisconsin to find their perfect match for the job,” Wells said.

A first for Kenosha, the expo follows 38 years of success for the annual Racine Home Expo, Wells said.

“There were about 1,200 attendees at February’s Racine Expo,” Wells said. “People left with new ideas and great contacts for current and upcoming projects.”

Vendors interested in signing up to be part of the event are encouraged to contact Wells about the Home Expo at email [email protected] or phone 262-656-6209.

They can also visit go.kenoshanews.com/2022homeexpo to sign up to be a vendor as well.
