The Philly Home Show is definitely something to check out if you’re in the area.
Philly Home & Garden Show
Dates: February 15-17, 2019
Location: Greater Philadelphia Expo Center – Oaks, PA
The Philly Home & Garden Show is similar to its home show-only cousin, but features more sessions and vendors about gardening. If you’re looking for an expo that features more workshops on landscaping and outdoor projects for your property, the Philly Home & Garden Show is likely a better option to attend.
Trade shows are always great experiences to attend, but ones pertaining to homes and living space seem to hold a more personal touch, as homeowners gain insight and ideas for how they would like to transform their own homes. More than anything, home shows are fun and offer opportunities to get out and join other homeowners and professionals to make your home the place you want it to be.
