2020 Home Show Event Descriptions

We are very pleased to bring you the highest quality lineup of home shows with the absolute strongest advertising plans that you’ll find anywhere in the Chicago area, bar none.  Not only do our home shows offer the exclusive opportunity to tap into some of the most affluent and active areas of Chicagoland, these events offer you the most impactful and meaningful meeting of buyer and seller on a massive scale.

Our specialty is to provide you solid, smart and highly productive investments for your business and the fact that we continue to deliver heavily attended and highly productive events is why we are the #1 investment for the most active and experienced exhibitors in this market.  There’s a reason and we invite you to join us to see just how productive our home shows will be for you as well.

We have taken great care in selecting exactly when and where we have scheduled each and every home show to provide you ideal geographic coverage for strong productivity of new customers for your business.  In fact, we are covering the vast majority of the Chicagoland suburbs, so there are sure to be events that attract the exact buyers you are looking for.

Overall, you’ll sense a pattern in the descriptions below.  In the past several years, we have delivered increasing numbers of attendees every season, attracting more homeowners than any other circuit of home shows in the Chicago area, hands down. In fact, we’ll go as far to say that it was the most heavily attended and successful season that has ever been produced in this market.  2019 was our 6th year in a row with an increase in attendance and we fully expect another record in 2020. 

The resulting demand as businesses pull investments from other events and other marketing efforts to invest more heavily into our events will result in the strongest circuit of shows this market has ever seen as we will continue to push for bigger, better home shows for ALL of our exhibitors.

Now is truly the time to get involved in our events, so please read on and we look forward to hearing from you very soon.

Oak Brook, IL – Drury Lane Theater & Event Center - January 18th & 19th, 2020

Once again, this show has proven why it is #1 for so many businesses year after year.  Consistently pulling huge crowds every single year without fail.  Ever since we introduced this event 6 years ago, we’ve packed the aisles every time.  There’s never been a better event to kick off your year, so don’t delay as this show is nearly 100% sold out!

Arlington Heights, IL – Arlington International Racecourse – February 15th & 16th, 2020

Home shows have been hosted at Arlington Racecourse for decades and we have taken this event to a new level with a constant flow of homeowners each and every time. Over 10,000 homeowners are projected for 2020.  Dozens of great markets throughout the northwest suburbs are served by this event, so if you are interested in gaining new customers within 15 miles of Arlington Heights, this is the event to put your business in.

Tinley Park, IL – Tinley Park Convention Center - March 7th - 8th & October 3rd - 4th, 2020

Home shows have been produced by other producers at the Tinley Park Convention Center since it was constructed in 2000.  When we came together with TPCC management to do what we do best and take the event to a whole new level, that precisely what we did.  Not only was it the busiest home show to ever take place at that facility, every exhibitors said it was busiest home show they’ve ever seen ANYWHERE! We agree. The line at opening on Saturday was a football field long and estimates are that over 15,000 homeowners attended this amazing event.  As with our other events, our upcoming event will grow substantially to 60,000 sq. ft. in size.  Once again, it will be the largest and most heavily advertised event of its kind to ever take place in the south suburbs.  Booth space for this home show is selling at a record pace, so those who are interested in participating should request space today.  Those who reserve space at the 2020 spring show will have priority rights to space in the October 3rd & 4th, 2020 Tinley Park Home show as well as the spring 2021 show as well!

Crystal Lake, IL – Holiday Inn Conf. – March 14th - 15th & Sept. 26 - 27, 2020

SOLD OUT FOR 2020!  Ask about the waiting list, but we strongly suggest you reserve space in our other events before they also sell out.  Proving itself year after year as a highly productive home show, this year’s Crystal Lake event continues the trend of pulling great crowds of GREAT buyers. This is THE event for homeowners in the area to shop for their homes and they LOVE it!  Those who reserve space and/or secure space on the waiting list at the 2020 spring show will have priority rights to space in the September 26 & 27, 2020 Crystal Lake Home Show as well as the spring 2021 show as well!

North Shore / Wheeling, IL – Westin Hotel – Jan. 9th & 10th, 2021

This even will return January 9th & 10th, 2021.  It is easily an advance sellout, so if you’re looking to target the most affluen market in Chicagoland, don’t delay.  The success of this event comes as no surprise because when it comes to demographic profiles of homeowners in the entire Midwest, the North Shore area is second to none and if you’re interested in meeting thousands of them in just one weekend, this is the event for you.

Naperville, IL – Players Sports Center – April 4th & 5th, 2020

The Naperville / Fox Valley area is an affluent, heavily populated and highly sought after market area. With a perfect mix of a huge population of homeowners, well above average demographics as well as a combination of both newer and older housing stock, this event has no equal in the area for attracting quality homeowners from this fine area.  Attendance is solid every year with amazing exhibitor feedback, leading us to a 2020 event that will easily have it’s strongest ad plan ever.  The first section, the 20,000 sq. ft. “Green zone” will be sold out any day now, so you guessed it… contact us today if you’d like to join us at this event.

St. Charles, IL – Pheasant Run Resort Mega Center – April 18th - 19th & Oct. 24th - 25th, 2020

The Pheasant Run Home & Garden show returns to the Pheasant Run Resort Mega Center on April 18th & 19th and over 10,000 homeowners are easily expected to this unprecedented event.  The advertising plan will be off the charts and the timing is absolutely ideal to lock in new customers as these buyers will be ready to commit!  The majority of the booth space has already sold out with new requests coming in daily, so contact us today for the latest availability!  Plus, those who confirm space in the April show have priority rights to select space in the Pheasant Run show on October 24th & 25th!

Lake County, IL – Lake County Fairgrounds – April 25th - 26th & Oct. 17th - 18th, 2020

Like the Tinley Park Show, Home shows have been run at the Fairgrounds ever since it was built. Our very first show here in 2017 was the largest and most heavily attended home show to ever take place in Lake County with over 10,000 homeowners streaming through the door right from the start.  Our 2018 event was much larger and we added thousands of attendees to the turnout.  And in 2019, the Lake County show actually grew to be the largest home show in the entire Chicago metro area! With a footprint as large as an NFL Football field (endzones included), this event also pulled attendance in the 15,000 range like the Tinley Park Show.  If you are looking for buyers by the thousands in Lake County, this is the one and only home show you need to be in, so call or email us today for the latest availability.  Plus!  Those who confirm space in the April show have priority rights to select space in the Lake County Home Show on October 17th & 18th!

Key aspects that our Home Shows will have in common are:

1) All facilities are very clean and well finished for environments that are welcoming and comfortable to both exhibitors and attendees.  Several are among the finest you’ll find anywhere.

2) All events target mid to high demographic market areas with very active communities.  Our specialty is attracting quality homeowners with disposable incomes and a track record of high consumer spending.  We’ve taken the steps to bring you True Buyers, not “Tire Kickers”.

3) Our Home Shows are clearly the dominant, if not exclusive events in the markets they serve, so they truly stand out to the community as the best choices to hire businesses like yours and to purchase products and services to improve their homes.  Also, nearby access from major routes and expressways helps them attend with ease.

4) Our 2020 Home Shows will be supported by the most substantial media campaigns, including local, major, targeted AND broadcast media such as the top major TV networks to provide you the best opportunities to meet and speak with thousands of qualified homeowners from these areas.  The total reach this season is projected to easily exceed a staggering 200 MILLION impressions! Easily unmatched in the Chicago area.
