The Wichita Area Builders Association has been producing the Home Show for 64 years. It has always been a very popular local event and, over the years, has expanded to include visitors from all over Kansas. A tour of the parking lot shows a minimum of 30 percent out of county car tags.
Most of the people that attend the show are home owners or getting ready to buy their first home. About 20,000 - 25,000 people attend the Show. It maintains its popularity because these people know that they can see just about every home related product in one location. As we always say, it’s the largest window shopping spree around with over 250 exhibiting companies. Every business knows that the people attending are comparing products and doing major research. People feel free to ask questions and not feel pressured.
Remodeling: The remodeling industry is changing. People are so busy that they require contractors to do a lot more than they did a few years ago. Design, product knowledge, major help with product selection is expected. Contractors need to be able to present a full package. Many contractors send their customer to the show to expedite this process.
PEOPLE ARE PUTTING THEIR MONEY WHERE THEIR ADDRESS IS
- If a home is 22 years or older, most likely some of the systems are in need of being replaced or at least upgraded.
- The life of many of the appliances and mechanical systems is nearing an end and surely aren't as efficient and convenient as they need to be.
- Americans will spend 100 billion dollars this year remodeling. The most sought after jobs are opening up the floor plans, new kitchens, creating master suites, changing window and door systems.
