I would like to take this time to thank the team at Marketplace Events on a job well done at this year's 2017 Calgary Home + Garden Show. We have participated in the show for 5 straight years and have seen improvements every year. The show allows customers to come and shop for the trade they are looking for to execute the project they are planning for in the spring or sometime down the road and at the show they can see what the contractor can do with their rented space in such a short period of time. It's such a good way for the consumer to learn more about the industry under one roof.
-Fab Saghir, Blue Lake Contracting
We have been involved with the Calgary Home + Garden Show for 6 years now, and have no intentions of not being involved in the future. We find that the Home + Garden Show brings us qualified, serious leads, which have turned into many successful projects over every season we have been in the show. We also find the timing of the show to be great for us, because it gets people thinking about landscaping a couple months before we can normally start their project. This allows time to work out design, budget and schedule so that the project is that much more efficient when the weather decides to cooperate.
-Thomas Rochow, Oasis Construction Landscaping Ltd.
We absolutely love this show. It is our favorite trade show. Amazing staff, lots of visitors. We couldn't ask for a better event!
-Kathleen White, The Calgary Herald
We believe it is THE show to attract homeowners and potential homeowners looking for shiny new, and tried and true.
-R. David Murray, Ecostone Products
The Calgary Home + Garden Show is great for putting us in direct contact with people that are specifically looking for the services that we provide. It is easy to showcase ourselves and our business. Lots of great leads and sales are generated at this show.
-Suzette Tumbas, Rocket Renovations
A lot of consumers (or potential customers), said they trust companies who invest so much to be in the show, and shows credibility and weeds out the "bad guys". Being connected to the show tells people we are a reputable company with nothing to hide. We had a lot of positive feed back which encouraged us even more to come back every year. Our investment in the show paid off 10 fold in the first week after the show. We are very pleased and recommend the show to all future potential exhibitors.
-Peter Gill, Abby Renovations Ltd.
The Home & Garden show is the biggest show of the year for us. We are guaranteed to come out of the show with a record amount of new loyal customers who are ready to buy! Unlike other shows we do, attendees to the H&G show are ready to buy!
-Brigitte Legault, Green Earth Organics
The consumer traffic is always excellent at this show - this the ONE that we look forward to for generating spring work.
-Alex, Handyman Connection
This show allows you to be in the largest of box stores and the most intimate of boutiques all under the same roof.
-David Mactavish, Emco Corporation – HVAC Division
Great show! It was busy the entire time, and people were interested in talking about renovations. We find the Home and Garden Show to be the best show for us, as we generate the most amount of leads.
-Suzette Tumbas, Rocket Renovations
The people behind the scenes at the show were helpful and cooperative. They made it easy for an out-of-area exhibitor to execute.
-D DeROCCO, CWF
The Home & Garden Show was a great success yet again for our business. It was busy and yet the space is accommodating for visitors and doesn't become over crowded.
-Jessica Martinez, Budget Blinds
I think it is a great show for both the businesses as well as the consumer. There is a lot of great products and it is also fantastic for networking. It is unfair when we put a lot of work into our booth and money to have a booth and people walk around and promote their business that aren't in the show.
-Heather Saunders, Designers View
This was one of the best shows in years! Great energy throughout the show! Customers are in a buying mood, not just tire-kicking! In spite of the cold, Saturday was 'crazy busy' ... in a good way!! Thanks!!
-Steve Neubauer, Blue Grass Garden Centre
The whole team of MPE are really great to work with.
-Darin Grift, Griffys Ventures Inc.
This is the BEST show I have had in the six years I have been doing the show. This show is always run with professionalism. They are always there to answer questions or find out anything you need.
-Brenda Topley, Black Sheep Design Studio
Any questions I had prior to the show were answered promptly. During the show all concerns or questions I had at the show office were dealt with quickly and everyone was friendly even under pressure. Same experience at the events office with prompt and friendly service.
-Mark Sibley, Sigmadek Ltd.
The show gave us amazing exposure to showcase our products! It far exceeded our expectations!
-Jennifer Adams, Scentsy.
