DeckExpo Changes Location as Sister Remodeling Show Goes Online
The exhibit hall of the Baltimore Convention Center is now used as a facility for recovering patients of COVID-19. It meets the need for inpatient care in the city.
The uncertainty of a return to hosting professional events led to the decision that Deck Expo is temporarily splitting off from the Remodeling Show. It will move to a new format sometime this year.
“Outdoor living is an important segment that’s been on the rise for several years in the pool, spa, and patio communities. The great energy and audience DeckExpo has cultivated will be key to our combined success as we work together to better serve our industries,” said Ray Giovine, show director for the International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo.
DeckExpo co-located with Remodeling Show in previous years.
However, for the first time it will now co-locate with the International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo (PSP Expo) from Nov. 11-13 in Las Vegas.
“We look forward to welcoming DeckExpo among our outdoor living partners, and we can’t wait for a successful show,” continued Ray Giovine.
“While we still powerfully believe in the value of a physical event, having to innovate the Remodeling Show this year provided our team with an opportunity to rethink what makes Remodeling great,” said Kristen McKercher, Remodeling Show director.
This year’s Remodeling Show will have a digital format on Oct. 13-15.
Using virtual platforms, the show will continue to display the latest building products and techniques.
It will also provide opportunities for professionals to network and connect.
The education program’s change to a virtual experience led to on-demand offers of conference sessions, building clinics, and product demonstrations.
“A big part of that is the education and thought leadership that the show provides, and we’re excited to work with our community to deliver our best in class conference program in a new and more dynamic way,” mentioned Kristen McKercher.
