HONOLULU- The 12th Annual BIA Remodel It Right Expo, held on August 12-14 at the Neal Blaisdell Exhibition Hall, generated 7,403 attendees. Corporate Sponsors Servco Home & Appliance Distribution Center and the Hawaiian Electric Companies presented Hawaii’s top contractors, suppliers, building industry experts and associates. The Expo included seminars on a range of topics for remodeling your home, from new window treatments and energy storage to information on aging in place and accessory dwelling units (ADU’s). The Expo also offered many new free seminars for consumers, as well as seminars on remodeling your kitchen and bath, which were well-attended and extremely informative.

Our Aging-in-place seminars were presented by BIA members who are Certified Aging In Place Specialists (CAPS), and packed with information to help families modify their homes to meet their needs. Completed surveys included positive feedback from seminar attendees about the quality of the seminars.

Gladys Quinto Marrone, BIA-Hawaii CEO/Chief Lobbyist stated, “Our exhibitors reported high quality leads from attendees who were very serious about obtaining information for specific renovation projects.

“I had six customers from the show on Friday night in my showroom Saturday, ready to make purchases,” stated Clayton Gomi, Showroom Manager, Ferguson Enterprises.

Our most popular exhibitors featured products and services for windows, kitchens, and bathrooms. PV companies with their expanded product lines and the latest remodeling trends were also highly sought-after by attendees. With the median prices of homes increasing every year and the shortage of housing inventory, educating homeowners on remodeling older homes and adding accessory dwelling units (ADU’s) is our current focus for this annual event.”

Kamuela Potter, President of Organized Hawaii, said that it was another great show for them with customers ready to customize their home, as well as repeat customers.
