HBA Home Show Recap with Slideshow – 2014

Thank you to all those who prayed for good weather for the 2014 HBA Home Show weekend. The weather was not perfect on Friday, but compared to the weather that hit the day after tear down, we were all quite lucky and pleased.


Many Vendors Claim Their Leads More Than Doubled Compared to the 2013 HBA Home Show


Many positive comments were heard in the crowd in response to the great efforts put forth once again by vendors and volunteers. The show started a little sluggish on Friday, with a cold rain, but then it kicked in high gear on Saturday and concluded on Sunday leaving two plus hours to head home and watch the “Super Bowl.” The Denver Bronco fans that rushed home for the game probably wished they had stayed and torn their booths down Sunday evening, but the Seattle Seahawk fans had a great evening!

Many vendors have been heard commenting that it was not only a great turnout on Saturday, but it was packed with quality leads. In fact, many vendors stated that the entire weekend created quality leads that were well worth the time and effort. Vendors like Barb Baker, with Concrete Enhancements, more than doubled their leads when compared to the 2013 Home Show.
