Showcase YOUR Business to the LOCAL Community!
The goal of Home Expo is to connect residents with local home improvement businesses and organizations. The intimate feel of the Home Expo allows for face-to-face consultations with eager home owners.
For each event, we offer up to five Business Sponsors. Sponsorship is $2000 per event. Event sponsorship has the following advantages:
- Premium booth location in the hall
- Booth space of approximately 10ft x 10ft
- KKDV 92.1 on air interview the day of the show (KKDV dependent)
- Full page Event Guide advertisement included in the price ($400 value)
- Logo on cover of Event Guide
- Logo on promotional materials and advertisements both on and off line where sponsors are noted
- Please note – only one sponsor is allowed per category
The exhibitor halls will be filled with approximately 40-50 businesses and organizations. One exhibitor space (one 6ft table) is $600, two tables is $1100. A $50 discount will be applied if you note that you are a Lafayette or Danville Chamber Business Member.
- Exhibitor booths are approximately 6ft x 6ft
- Included is one 6ft table and two chairs
- If requested, your booth can be placed close to an electrical outlet (please bring powerstrip and cords)
- For an additional fee, a white, floor length table cloth can be rented the day of the show. We will have this table cloth for you at your table and will return it for you at the end of the day.
- Need more booth space? There is an option to register for two tables. These tables must be beside each other. Cost is $1100.
- For a well-rounded show, we allow only 3-5 businesses/organizations per category. Please register early to secure your spot!
Registration & Setup
The registration starts by you, the business/organization, reviewing all the pertinent information about the show. Please note, there are no refunds or cancellations. Complete the online registration form in it’s entirety. Once received we will confirm your registration and send you an invoice where you will then be able to pay via check, bank transfer or credit card.
This is a one day show open to the public 10am – 4pm. Setup will take place between 8am and 9:30am and tear down needs to be completed by 5pm. Additional setup/teardown information will be provided to each exhibitor a few weeks prior to the show.
To the best of our ability, businesses/organizations within the same category will NOT be placed near each other in the hall. You may request a booth location within the building but please note: we give preference first to sponsors, then to repeat exhibitors. The table layout may change year to year depending on the type of exhibitors.
An Event Guide is printed and distributed at the show. All exhibitor’s contact information will be printed in this booklet. It’s a great resource for attendees! Advertising opportunities are available.
