Home reno show in town

Locals were treated to a one-stop shop for information on everything to do with the building industry, Saturday in Penticton.

The Home and Reno Show, put on in Penticton by the Canadian Home Builders Association South Okanagan, is halfway through its 23rd annual event.

The two-day show features more than 130 booths from up and down the Okanagan.

"The 100-plus businesses that are represented in this show are some of the best in our valley," Carol Sudchak said, CMBA executive officer.

"The best part of this show is being able to network with these businesses on a one-on-one, and see what's new and exciting out there in the industry."

Craig McJannet, owner-operator of Kelowna-based Solar Centre which installs tubular skylights, said his business has been at the show for the past five years.

He said the event is a chance to create exposure and build relationships — and he said the timing of it in early March is productive as well, with more people around as spring nears.

"We seem to get good traction here," McJannet said, noting not everyone knows a product like the tubular skylight exists, which he said is a less-expensive alternative to traditional skylights in homes.

Other exhibitors include home builders, suppliers, manufacturers, developers, insurance providers, financial institutions and other related businesses.

The public can visit the final day of the show at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Admission is $4, and proceeds are used by the non-profit CHBA for education and innovation opportunities, according to Sudchak.
