2016 Home Shows

Our 2016 Home Show season included 3 shows over a 5 week period between February and March. Two of these shows were “first times,” both for the shows and then for us too. 2016 was also the first time we’ve done 3 home shows in the spring season. The Des Moines Home + Outdoor Living Show also gave me my first opportunity to talk to HGTV stars, The Property Brothers (Jonathon and Drew Scott), about outdoor living – or fishing.

Thanks to Marketplace Events and the Ames Homebuilders Association for organizing and promoting these shows. And, thanks to all of you who came out to these shows.
