The Interior Alaska Building Association’s Home Show, sponsored by Lowe’s, takes place March 24-26 at the Carlson Center. The 2016 event had over 140 different vendors and over 5000 people in attendance. The show’s continued success attracts statewide and nationwide businesses alike and has become a major community event for people interested in every aspect of northern living. It is the only home show in Fairbanks and has become the unofficial kick off to spring and the building season in our community. From financing to new construction to remodeling to refurnishing…it’s all there in one location on one floor with lots of free parking. There are free seminars all weekend with tips and advice on improving your home and saving you money!
The 2017 IABA Home Show will be an excellent chance for vendors to market goods to a wide cross section of our community. You won’t want to miss this once-a-year opportunity to be part of the excitement, profit, and fun. The theme for 2017 will be “Follow The Yellow Brick Road” and we are excited to see what kind of Wizard of Oz fun the vendors put together.
It will take place at the Carlson Center, the interior’s premier location for trade shows. 43,000 sq. ft. of available space laid out in single 10×10 spaces and multi spaces.
This will be the 33rd annual event and will take place on Mar 24-26, 2017. A great time to start planning a summer project, and a great place to highlight your business to the project minded section of Fairbanks.
The IABA HOME SHOW’s continued and growing success is due to the quality of the vendors and the home related merchandise that is available at the event. To insure growth in this direction preference for new vendors will be given to businesses that are directly related to the home and home building.
$7,000 will be spent on advertising The IABA HOME SHOW. All four medias will be used, TV, Radio, the newspaper, and social media. In addition there will be media co-sponsors to the event that will raise our advertising budget to well over $10,000.
Seminars and hands on demonstrations take place throughout the weekend. From home loans to how to build an energy rated home. If your company has a topic or demonstration to present time slots may be requested by contacting KO Productions at least a month prior to the show.
The IABA HOME SHOW is sponsored by the Interior Alaska Building Association. Proceeds from the event go to support this nonprofit agency whose mission is to promote safe, durable and affordable housing while coordinating all fields related to the building industry for the benefit of our community and the industry as a whole.
