The event, which is sponsored by NARI-BIE, will take place from March 4th to 6th at the Coventry Mall in the former Ross Dress for Less location as it provides over 30,000 square feet for the Expo to spread into. This will allow for more events and additional activities designed to include the whole family.
Tammy Hetrick, a NARI-BIE member who was hired as the event coordinator said that this was the right time to revamp the event a little.
“Homeowners’ needs are changing and the way they get their information is changing. They seem to go to the Internet first when searching for services,” she pointed out. “We decided as a committee that if we’re going to stay current we need to make the expo an event you can take your wife and the entire family to.”
The expo is free of charge, and in addition to providing information and demonstrations from creative and remodeling vendors, it will provide activities and entertainment for the entire family.
“We want everyone to come: The single mom with three kids, the young couple who just bought a house – anyone that might have a project they need to do around the house,” commented Hetrick.
The location will feature a 15-foot-by-40-foot entertainment platform which will host a variety of events such as the Pottstown “Frosts” cake decorating contest on Friday, a demonstration of martial arts skills and mastery by local Tae Kwon Do students on Saturday, and the Pottstown “Chops” Contest which will feature local restaurant chefs on Sunday.
There is still room available for vendors for this year, as the venue is currently half way full, added Hetrick. Interested vendors can contact Hetrick by e-mail at email@example.com, by calling the NARI-BIE office at 610-323-1700, or by visiting http://pottstownfamilyandhomeexpo.com.
The Expo will be open to visitors from 2 to 9 p.m. on March 4th, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on March 5th, and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on March 6th.
