The Chicago Southland & Will County
Home Improvement Expo 2017

MESSAGE TO EXHIBITORS

Spring is when homeowners’ biggest remodeling plans come to fruition, so do not miss this grand show!  Last year we unveiled our first event at the new and beautiful Tinley Park Convention Center.  This popular and long-running show had been passed down to our company to host and comes with a built-in loyal crowd.  Join us again for our second spring installment of what turned out to be a fantastic show.  This key market is your best shot at Southland Chicago homeowners.  By focusing on your booth presentation and creating engaging learning experiences for attendees, you are sure to leave with an abundance of leads and set appointments.  Our goal is to provide an easy, comfortable way for homeowners and contractors to discuss possibilities face-to-face in a positive buying environment.  Admission fees will be charged to attendees.
