Rebranded Calgary Renovation Show to feature what's hot for 2017

New Year's resolutions are almost as inevitable as the New Year itself. And if those resolutions include home renovation projects, then the Calgary Renovation Show is here to help.

Previously known as the Calgary Homexpo, the rebranded show returns to Calgary for its 46th year Jan 13 to 15, 2017, but with a new name, new look and new presenter – Marketplace Events, the group behind the Calgary Home + Design Show and Calgary Home + Garden Show.

"The all-new Calgary Renovation Show focuses on reimagining your current space," courtesy of some 200 exhibitors related to the latest in home and renovation trends and products, as well as a variety of guest presenters, said show manager Teri Salazar.

Annual Calgary Home + Design Show comes to town at the perfect time

Alberta's home renovations sector is booming.

The Calgary Home + Design Show is back for its 34th year.

Seems like a match made in heaven.

Brought about by ongoing economic uncertainty, more Albertans are looking for ways to upgrade their space rather than their place. According to Statistics Canada, investment on residential renovation in the province has increased by 3.8 per cent over the first six months of 2015 to $3.1 billion.

Home + Design goes DIY

Workshops give show attendees opportunities to get hands-on

Under a cloud of ongoing economic uncertainty, more Calgarians are bringing projects around the home ... well, in house.

"There seems to be a resurgence of making. More and more people want to learn how to make things for their homes or as gifts," said Calgary style-and-DIY-expert Lacey Haskell who will be among a handful of local experts on hand for a series of workshops at the 2016 edition of the Calgary Home + Design Show Sept. 22 to 25.

Janette Ewen and Jef Hancock will be among dozens of designer gurus on hand at the 32nd annual Home + Design Show, running from Sept. 17 to 20 at the BMO Centre.

Making design easy

32nd annual Home + Design Show returns Sept 17 – 20

From blah bathrooms to cluttered kitchens, homeowners are often encouraged to channel their inner designer.

The trouble is knowing where to start.

"There are a lot of shortcuts to make it easier," said Parker Barrow's Janette Ewen who, with co-owner Jef Hancock, will be among dozens of designer gurus on hand at the BMO Centre Sept. 17-20 for the 32nd annual Home + Design Show.

CREB®Now will be presenting Ewen and Hancock when they take the Trail Appliances Main Stage Sept. 18 at 4 p.m., Sept. 19 at 4:30 p.m. and Sept. 20 at noon.

"And the ideas out there are endless: from storing holiday decorations in an egg carton to painting keys with nail polish for easy identification."
