SH Show Productions’ planning of The Dayton Home & Outdoor Living Show, the largest home show in the region is coming to a close as the three day Dayton Convention Center showcase draws near. The event will be held from March 8-10.
Filled with a plethora of ideas, trends and talents, the show features more than 225 exhibitors at the Dayton Convention Center showcasing, including the latest in home improvement, outdoor living, kitchen & bath design, culinary demonstrations and more.
“The Dayton Home & Outdoor Living Show is a show that offers all things for your home or outdoor living spaces.” Says Randy Phillips, the showcase director.
“So after a long winter if you are thinking of sprucing up a bit or doing a full remodel of your home you may come and talk with the experts to get ideas or little or a lot of help to make that happen.”
This year’s show will be celebrating its 25th year. Starting as the Dayton Home & Garden Show the namesake changed as more and more clients and attendee’s outdoor spaces have become less garden focused and more entertainment based.
“Guests will see a wide variety of products and services.” Phillips continues, “And talk with experts in paint and design. On Friday we will also feature a new ‘Junior Chef Showdown’ and students of local culinary schools will compete with one another to create a dish to delight our judges from the items in our mystery basket and be named Junior Chef Showdown Champ.”
Saturday and Sunday will feature the same event but in place of students, professional Chefs from local restaurants including Meadowlark, Wheat Penny, Lily’s Bistro, The Watermark, The Dayton Club, Winds Café and The Chef’s Case will be in competition.
The winner of each will face off on Sunday to be crowned “Dayton’s Chef Showdown Champ”
“Come prepared to spend the day, ask questions, get ideas,” Phillips says about being prepared for the show.
“…Walk away with a plan to create your ideal home for now and in the future, whether this is your for now home or the home that you will age in place, we have the experts to help you create just that.”
“We have everything for the home, apartment, or dream home in your future,” Phillips says.
He went on to say:
“You should come and immerse yourself in all things for the home and garden, or just come for a glimpse of spring with the flora that is throughout the show.”
Attending a show with professional vendors is more than just a purchasing opportunity. Attendees receive ideas and updated trends whether you are a renter or a homeowner.
Phillips wants attendees of this event to leave with one key asset, “Knowledge on how to start a plan.” He says. “Or just fresh ideas for the home or apartment or perhaps a great way to prepare a quick meal for the home. I would not want to be under the time clock of the chef showdown but it sure is fun to watch!”
For the first time as a part of the show, SH Show Production will also be holding a Career Advancement (Job Fair).
Contacting trade schools and colleges, SH Show Productions have invited students to speak with potential employers. They are the first home show in the U.S. to offer such an option.
The Dayton Home & Outdoor Living Show will be held March 8-10 at The Dayton Convention Center.
