The 31st Waikato Home & Garden Show

1st - 4th October 2015

We promised to take the 30th celebration Waikato Home and Garden Show to another level and we delivered on our promise! Feedback and accolades from some of the 33,200 visitors and from many of the exhibitors has been heart warming for my team at Hannah & Associates Exhibitions, who have worked thousands of hours to bring this great event to Claudelands Event Centre in Hamilton.

For the first time ever we incorporated the huge sporting Arena into the exhibition. We indulged our imagination and pushed boundaries to create a special space celebrating past, present and future.

The stunning floral entry co-ordinated by floral art conveyor Maureen Clark was themed party time and incorporated the Waikato Designer of the Year Awards. The holographic waterfall created a spectacular entry to the pavilion - a specially designed Italian water fountain, a Mediterranean garden, a five room concept house, the very latest in building products, outdoor design and a nod to Hamilton's 150 year history with a photo board display, displays from Pacific Aerospace, a 200 year old photo player and a veteran racing car were bought to a cohesive whole by veteran exhibition designer Dave Walmsley.

During the weekend a number of exhibitors achieved record results selling out of products! The seven restaurant, café and wine bars offered a wide variety of choices including salmon, scallops, slow roasted lamb shanks from Domaine Restaurant, Mediterranean platters from Vilagrads, homemade Italian pasta, hot ham off the bone meals and fresh organic salads with pulled chicken from Bird on a Wire in the Stables Café and Bar. Smegs huge display was one of the Shows highlights again this year. New Zealand’s leading product and design specialists and designers came together to bring the latest ideas and innovative solutions for the home.

The Waikato Home and Garden Show in association with ‘The Colour Space’ on the Smeg stand was privileged to host innovative design leaders who collaborated to provide design and colour inspiration for home owners renovating or building a new home.

Plans are well underway for the 2015 Waikato Home and Garden Show. Save the dates now 1-4 October 2015.

See you at the Home Show!
