That’s right folks! It’s hard to believe, but the Vancouver Home + Design Show is back in action with the 2012 fall event, boasting all of the latest and greatest in home and interior design to get your juices flowing and minds racing just in time for your fall décor updates! I pretty much squeal with excitement whenever I see the advertising start to pop up around Vancouver announcing the dates of the show, running October 11 through 14 at BC Place Stadium.
Having attended the show for years, I’ve become pretty good kanoodle buddies with a few of the people who run the show, including Jill Kivett, Show Manager + Spokesperson from Marketplace Events Vancouver. Her thoughts on this year’s show are pretty spectacular…
“The Vancouver Home + Design Show is the ultimate authority on all things lifestyle. With big names like Bryan Baeumler, star of HGTV’s Leave It To Bryan, Jillian Harris, design host of W Network’s Love It or List It Vancouver, Chef Rob Feenie of Cactus Club Café and famed chocolatier Thomas Haas, plus more than 325 exhibitors and a host of new and exciting features, there’s expert insight, innovation and inspiration for living well at every turn. Satisfaction guaranteed – or the cost of admission is on us.”
The show has added a few new twists and elements to the four-day long event, keeping things fresh and exciting for this year’s attendees! I’m most excited to see the new daily breakdown, with key features each day:
- Thursday, October 11 – Savour Thursday, presented by The Beat 94.5 FM
- Friday, October 12 – Style Friday, presented by Park Royal in North Vancouver (we’re got 2-for-1 exclusive passes for you as well)!
- Saturday, October 13 – Design Saturday
- Sunday, October 14 – Renovate Sunday
There are key icons for each of the delays, targeting key celebrity guests and hot products for you to check out, so make sure you grab your show guide and check out which products are hot that day! Definitely a good reason to check out the show more than once this weekend…
Another personal favourite of the show is the HGTV main stage, boasting celebrity acts throughout the weekend, including my style girl-crush Jillian Harris, and hunky handy man SLASH fan of Homorazzi, Bryan Baeumler. Even though he bats for the straights, he’s a worth having a look at!
