The people behind the Grand Rapids Boat Show, Ultimate Sports Show, Golf Show and several others have a new show for us.

ShowSpan announced it is launching a new consumer show this January, when it will present the Grand Rapids Remodeling & New Homes Show, in association with the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids at DeVos Place, January 9-11, 2015.

 "There's a need for this type of a focused show that is all about -- and only about! -- the home," says ShowSpan Senior Manager Carolyn Alt. "This show will feature the best of our area's building and design services. It is a valuable tool for everyone looking to build a home, add-on to or remodel their current home, or to refresh and update."

HBAGGR Executive Officer Emily Lubbers agrees. "We are pleased to host the show with ShowSpan," she says. "The Grand Rapids Remodeling & New Homes Show is that perfect opportunity for our members, who need homeowners to think about remodeling or building new homes early in the year."
