It is important to work with Utah Valley people who understand our climate and living conditions and building codes.

5. You will have fun.
Every family members will find something he or she will like. For the kids, it may be the bounce houses and other family fun. All will enjoy the reasonably priced food. But most of all, you will love what you see, touch and feel with the latest home products.
6. You will come away with so many new ideas.

We are giving out big and small prizes, and you will walk away with samples and giveaways.

Many skilled home improvement experts are not design experts. For example, some contractors are not painters. By talking to the local professionals, you will better understand your project needs.
9. You can comparison shop.
All products are not the same, and all contractors are not the same. Some specialize in smaller jobs; others are whole-house renovators or elaborate kitchen makeover specialists.
10. You will meet some fine people.
Your neighbors who are planning renovations will be there and you can swap ideas. You will meet local business owners and contractors. You can say hello to Roxanne, the show’s organizer and the one who is on the microphone often directing your attention to the exciting activities.
