Sponsored by BIA
The BIA-Hawaii Home Building & Remodeling Show is coming up at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall and will run from January 24-26, 2020. The event is a one-stop-shop for anyone looking to build a new or remodel an existing home. With about 30,000 attendees every year, it’s a must for local homeowners and potential homeowners. Guests have the opportunity to meet and talk to licensed contractors and suppliers, attend informative seminars and find a little inspiration.
If you’re thinking about doing any work on your home, you’ll find experts who can help you plan and get started. The BIA-Hawaii Home Building & Remodeling Show is also a great place to gather ideas about projects. Every exhibitor is going to be able to provide you with finished project examples and even new products and lines that have come out in 2020.
With so much to see, where should you start? The very best thing that you can do is pick up a Home Show guide. These are online at BIAHawaii.org or in the January issue of Hawaii Home + Remodeling Magazine. Go through the guide and mark which exhibitors you’re going to see, write out your questions, and attend some of the free seminars. Make the most of your time and take advantage of the free learning opportunities! You’re never going to have builders, contractors, suppliers and even licensing and consumer-safeguard agencies all under the same roof – unless you go to this show.
The seminars are held Saturday and Sunday and all are free with the price of admission. The sessions range from home security screens and doors to remodeling options. You’ll be able to learn more about solar power and if you should build new or remodel, things to expect during a renovation project, surface selection – like floors, countertops, even condo remodeling, because that is a different type of job entirely and condo owners need help understanding how to get through the project with as little pain as possible.
The event will be held at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall. Admission is available for $8 at the Blaisdell Box Office. Tickets are cash only, but for $10 you can get admission for the whole weekend or just $2 on Kupuna Sunday if you’re 60 or over. Insider tip: Arrive before 5 p.m. for the best parking. This applies to Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
