Sixty-Seventh Annual Home Builders Association of Greater Knoxville Home Show, Friday, April 20, through Sunday, April 22, featured 125 vendors — most of which are HBAGK members — and more than 200 booths in Knoxville Convention Center. “It was totally sold out. There was not one empty booth this year,” said Ashley Burnette, HBAGK executive vice president. “The real key to this show is, if you are actively getting ready to build, or if your are ready to start adding an addition on your home, or renovating, this is an ideal show to attend,” he added. “It’s because all of the (Knoxville metro) builders are here, all of the renovation companies are here, all of the key suppliers are here.”
With the overwhelming percentage of show attendees residential homeowners, “this is a show, unlike other shows, where you’ll see person after person walking around holding blueprints,” Burnette said.
