21st annual North Atlanta Home Show & Outdoor Living Expo coming to Gwinnett
More than 150 remodeling experts will soon gather in Gwinnett County for the 21st annual North Atlanta Home Show & Outdoor Living Expo, which is set to run Feb. 9-11 at Duluth’s Infinite Energy Center.
The expo, which features representatives from kitchen and bath remodeling to flooring and home automation, has been expanded this year to include an outdoor living area that will feature landscape design, outdoor living, fire pits, outdoor lighting and more.
The show will also offer buyer discounts, product demonstrations and feature several speakers, including Egypt Sherrod on the Reliable Heating & Air Home Show Stage, host of HGTV’s “Flipping Virgins,” “Property Virgins” and “Urban Oasis.”
She will speak about real estate investing and home improvement upgrades on Saturday, Feb. 10 at 1 and 3 p.m.
“Over the past 21 years, the North Atlanta Home Show has grown in popularity, with attendees who are looking for ways to remodel, repair and refresh their home,” said Michael Schoppenhorst, president of SEMCO Productions, the organization that puts on the show. “Because so many home improvement experts are exhibiting in one place, attendees can comparison shop, see products demonstrated, speak one-on-one with the exhibitors and even make appointments for professionals to come to their homes.”
In addition to vendor booths, the expo will feature the “Terrapin Backyard Beer Garden” in the outdoor living area, where attendees can sample the Athens-based brewery’s products.
A $5 beer tasting donation will benefit the Georgia SPCA, which will also have adoptable animals and merchandise for sale for patrons.
Tickets cost $8, though on Friday, anyone who works in the home industry will receive free admission to the show by showing his or her business card at the main entrance.
Every day, children age 12 and under and adults age 65 and older (with I.D.) will be admitted for free and military personnel and first responders (with I.D.) will receive a free ticket with the purchase of one general admission ticket.
On site parking is free.
