Home Show Events for 2023-2024
For centuries, people across the globe have utilized face-to-face gatherings to conduct the majority of their commerce. In fact, event marketing is one of the oldest (if not the oldest) forms of marketing still in use today.
(To see our full list of upcoming Minnesota Home Shows, visit our Show Schedule page.)
But how does something as “archaic” as events, remain so beneficial today, despite the introduction of new technologies like TV, the internet and direct mail? And how are events still a thing with everything going on in the world?
Well, the answers boil down to basic human nature!
Participating in live events, and specifically a remodeling expo, has numerous unique advantages for home improvement companies that simply cannot be duplicated with any other form of marketing currently available.
This is why home shows and remodeling expos are still the number #1 choice of marketing for many major home service professionals across the country!

Meeting customers face-to-face allows you to shorten your sales cycle by qualifying buyers on-the-spot, building trust, gathering information, brand building, and so much more. When having a face-to-face conversation with someone, humans are able to discern so much about each other in a very short amount of time. From observing facial expressions to tone of voice, it’s how we’re all built to process information.
Contrast that with other marketing channels such as TV, radio, or print – which are all very one-sided forms of marketing. With these, you are spewing out information to large, un-targeted masses of people which makes these marketing options incredibly inefficient by comparison.
Television, radio, and print is basically tossing money at a large group of people and hoping they are buyers, or even worse - hoping those buyers take action and reach out to you! Which is asking a LOT of someone, when you think about it!
Now, consider internet marketing. This type of marketing can allow for better targeting – if you know what you’re doing. But, if you’re not well versed in the technology, it can be extremely unforgiving. For the uneducated, you can waste thousands and thousands of dollars without seeing any results.
Even those who consider themselves decent internet marketers are likely spending too much for customers leads. That is because internet marketing is a shark infested ocean with savvy players backed by large pocketbooks. As costs of impressions go up, so does your cost-per-lead…
Participating at a remodeling expo will allow your company – whether it is big and small - to compete on a level playing field, with a low barrier to entry, and reach huge crowds of targeted & qualified buyers. Here at Minnesota Home Shows, we do the heavy lifting to bring our customers consistent leads at an unbeatable price.
So, what does the future of events look like? Never better!
Studies show customers prefer live events because it gives them control of the shopping experience. They can receive multiple quotes, vet companies, and gain insight into their home projects.
At Minnesota Home Shows, 2023 was a year for our record books. We broke every one of our Attendee and Exhibitor records! Participating in and attending live events to do business not some hush, hush secret. In fact, that's why hundreds of Minnesota companies participate and why tens of thousands of attendees visit our shows every year!
So, if you’re not yet registered for our upcoming remodeling expos, we have 10 great Home Shows to look forward to, beginning this fall!
