The Maricopa County Home and Landscape Show arrives at State Farm Stadium in Glendale July 16-18.
The Home and Landscape Show allows people to shop at local businesses and attend seminars and workshops.
Katie Jones, director of shows for Maricopa County Home Shows, said the home shows offered “consumers the ability to come to a central location and shop at multiple exhibitor booths.”
Jones said the show has a variety of vendors and companies for visitors to check out.
“It has everything from interior design to housewares, home design, home improvement companies, landscapers, seminars, gardening,” she said. “It revolves so exclusively and specifically around home improvement, home improvement, and garden improvement.”
The next show at State Farm Stadium will host several special events, including demonstrations, performances and seminars. These include a beginner’s glass engraving class, demonstrations of beeswax candle making, and dog training. Jones said there will be two scenes at the show.
One will be dedicated to the renovation and improvement of housing. Clients can meet experts there and learn more about home improvement projects. The other stage hosts gardening and landscaping and will be taught by the AU Master Gardener program.
The bestselling features will return this year.
“We also got our head office back by popular demand, and this is our craft workshop where you can go in… build your own craft and come away with that craft,” she said.
These crafts range from painted panels to garden terrariums.
Jones said the Home and Landscape Show will offer free wine tastings and “a free landscaping consultation” valued at $ 350. Anyone interested in landscaping consultation should bring photos and measurements of their yard.
Jones said of about 800 booth locations at the show, about 700 featured local contractors and businesses discussing projects and services in a “very safe and controlled filtered environment.”
“They have the opportunity to speak with reputable, licensed and selected contractors,” Jones said.
“We make sure they’re properly licensed through the Arizona Registrar of Contractors. This way, when you come to the salon, you can shop with confidence.
Local artisans will also sell their crafts and wares. Many of them rely on the show for their business.
“They rely on the leads generated by the home shows to keep their employees on the payroll,” she said. “Then companies are able to develop and retain these employees. “
By hosting five home shows throughout the year at locations in Phoenix, Glendale and Scottsdale, he also opens up new opportunities for these businesses.
“It gives businesses the opportunity to exhibit and meet people from areas of the valley who don’t necessarily travel to their homes, which also increases their growth,” Jones said.
She said that because businesses from across the valley come to these shows, they also provide an easier way for the public to find companies to do business with.
“Now they’re exposed to those valley businesses that aren’t readily available, or you don’t have to put them online and do some research on your own,” Jones said.
“You can come spend an hour or two at the Home Show and do it all in such a short time. “
