Exhibitor testimonials of the Novi Home and Garden shows

I want to thank-you again for help me get the booth for Lotus Bank—everything I have heard from our Board Members who attended the show, many for the first time, was positive. Some of our commercial customers were also there for the first time and they were very impressed.I look forward to the next shows and will hopefully be reserving a spot shortly for the October event...

This was the best show I have ever participated in—much more traffic, a lot of interest in bromeliads, many stopped by to chat about problems and successes, and they bought—I had almost nothing left when I closed Saturday evening. Whatever you're doing right, keep it up!

Kudos to you for doing such a great job in putting together a fabulous show that everyone could appreciate. We really enjoyed every aspect of it, and look forward to the upcoming show in the Fall.

Exhibiting with the HBA at their home shows is a vital part of our marketing plan. We are there for all 3 shows throughout the year. As the economy seems to improve, the quality of traffic and leads seems to improve. We meet many homeowners who are there to find a contractor for their project.

The Michigan Chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) has voted overwhelmingly to commit to the show. You (Rosalie) do a wonderful job putting it together, and because of you efforts, it was a great show last year!
Carol Herrick, President, MI State Chapter - NKBA
I always look forward to participating in the HBA's Winter and Spring home shows at the Suburban Collection. The number of leads and actual appointments generated from these shows far exceed any other form of marketing that we do and in a very short period of time. It's wonderful for potential clients to see our custom built Glide Out shelving first hand and recognize the ease of access, additional space, organization, value and quality that ShelfGenie will provide for their existing kitchen cabinets, pantries, bathroom vanities... and a multitude of other locations in their home. These shows afford us the opportunity to be up close and personal with the people most interested in updating their homes.

I've personally been a participant at your shows for the past 2 years and my employer has been involved for many more. I was impressed from the beginning and I have seen these shows do nothing but grow and develop. We are always perfecting how we participate and I appreciate your willingness to allow us to have become a strong and integral part of your shows.

The HBA shows have always attracted a good percentage of serious buyers for my products and services over the last ten years. I credit a good portion of my business each year to the quality leads I get from doing the HBA home shows.

If you think you might want to expand your business the Novi show is the only place to go.

The Spring Home & Garden Show continues to amaze me ... it is virtually a non-stop stampede of lookers and buyers. A very production show with quality leads. We have done this show four times now and each year we almost double our prior year sales from it.

The HBA shows have been a valuable part of our marketing the past few years. The shows are well attended, well organized, and provide us with an audience of qualified prospects for our service. It is always a pleasure to work with the HBA staff.

Novi home show in January 2012, brought back memories of shows from the old days. Best turn out for traffic and appointment's from one show in years!!

After years of exhibiting at various home shows and trying out other advertising in many forms, I find the HBA shows are well advertised to the public and bring us quality customers.

I wanted to thank you again for allowing us to showcase our greys at the show. We did get one application from the show and a lot of interest that may translate into future adoptions....you just never know. The group also raised over $500 in donations which will help our fosters and allow us to continue bringing these wonderful retired racers to find their forever homes.

Thank you again for all that you do. Without wonderful people like you it would be harder for us to continue our work.
