The Ideal Home Show is by far Ireland’s largest, best attended and most successful exhibition for home owners. Such is the demand for this event among both visitors and exhibitors that it is held in both Spring and Autumn.
Both events sell out with up to 250 exhibitors and each achieves an attendance of between 25,000 and 30,000 visitors.
The event is promoted as providing home owners with the advice, inspiration and resources they need to undertake their home improvement projects. It is a comprehensive event covering all aspects of home improvements from simple labour saving devices to bespoke furniture, interiors, kitchens and bathrooms to extensions, major renovations and new builds.
Visitor attend with budgets to spend that often run into hundreds of thousands of Euro.
Exhibitions are unlike any other form or advertising or promotion. They offer what is known as ‘Face to Face Marketing’. You, as an exhibitor, have the opportunity to meet new customers and prospective customers, show them your product first hand in real life and develop the relationship which is essential for any major expenditure.
Some exhibitors are interested in direct sales and bring stock to the event. Others are interesting in finding home owners who are planning major project that will require everything from architectural, design or building services to kitchens, bathrooms, furnishing, doors & windows, insulation, flooring, lighting and more.
The event is feature driven with at least five major feature such as the Showhouse and Colourtrend Interior Design Forum at each events together with advice centres, theatres and one to one consultations.
