2019 Home Show Event Descriptions

We are very pleased to bring you the highest quality lineup of home shows with the absolute strongest of ad plans that you’ll find anywhere in the Chicago area.   Not only do our home shows offer the exclusive opportunity to tap into some of the most affluent and active areas of Chicagoland, these events offer you the most impactful and meaningful meeting of buyer and seller on a massive scale.

Our specialty is to provide you solid, smart and highly productive investments for your business and the fact that we continue to deliver heavily attended and highly productive events is why we are the #1 investment for the most active and experienced exhibitors in this market.  There’s a reason and we invite you to join us to see just how productive our home shows will be for you as well.

We have taken great care in selecting exactly when and where we have scheduled each and every home show to provide you ideal geographic coverage for strong productivity of new customers for your business.  In fact, we are covering the vast majority of the Chicagoland suburbs, so there are sure to be events that attract the exact buyers you are looking for.

Overall, you’ll sense a pattern in the descriptions below.  2018 was an incredible season with a HUGE increase in attendance pulling more attendees through than any other circuit of home shows in the Chicago area, hands down. In fact, we’ll go as far to say that it was the most heavily attended and successful season that has ever been produced in Chicagoland.  And this was our 5th year in a row with an increase in attencdance and we fully expect another record in 2019. 

The resulting demand as businesses pull investments from other events and other marketing efforts to invest more heavily into our events will result in the strongest circuit of shows this market has ever seen as all shows are on a sellout pace.

Now is truly the time to get involved in our events, so please read on and we look forward to hearing from you very soon.

Oak Brook, IL – Drury Lane Theater & Event Center - January 19th & 20th, 2019

Update!  Despite being hit with Winter Storm Harper and dangerous travel conditions, wind and cold, our massive advertising plan won the battle pulling thousands of motivated and clearly determined buyers through to door.  Many exhibitors had their best Oak Brook show ever!  It is this same strength that will be implemented at ALL shows in 2019, so call today for our other events! 

Arlington Heights, IL – Arlington International Racecourse – February 16th & 17th, 2019

Our 2018 Arlington event attracted a record crowd with a constant flow of homeowners. This step up will allow us to take the 2019 event to whole new level! Over 10,000 homeowners are projected for 2019. Dozens of great markets throughout the northwest suburbs are served by this event, so if you are interested in gaining new customers within 15 miles of Arlington Heights, this is the event to put your business in.

Tinley Park, IL – Tinley Park Convention Center - March 2nd & 3rd, 2019

Home shows have been produced by other producers at the Tinley Park Convention Center since it was constructed in 2000. When we came together with TPCC management to take the event to a whole new level, that precisely what we did. Not only was it the busiest home show to ever take place at that facility, every exhibitors said it was busiest home show they’ve ever seen ANYWHERE! We agree. The line at opening on Saturday was a football field long and estimates are that over 15,000 homeowners attended this amazing event. As with our other events, the 2019 event will grow substantially to over 60,000 sq. ft. in size. Once again, it will be the largest and most heavily advertised event of its kind to ever take place in the south suburbs. Booth space for this home show is selling quickly, so those who are interested in participating should request space today.

SOLD OUT! Crystal Lake, IL – Holiday Inn Conference Ctr. – March 9th & 10th, 2019

SOLD OUT FOR 2019!  Ask about the waiting list, but we strongly suggest you reserve space in our other events before they also sell out.  Proving itself year after year as a highly productive home show, this year’s Crystal Lake event continues the trend of pulling great crowds of GREAT buyers. This is THE event for homeowners in the area to shop for their homes and they LOVE it! And for 2019, we have access to more ballroom space and the will be even larger!

North Shore / Wheeling, IL – Westin Hotel – March 23rd & 24th, 2019

Our 2018 show here was 25% larger than the 2017 event as this show continues to grow every year. As with all of our home shows, 2019 will be larger than ever, selling out in advance and allowing yet another boost in advertising as we expect a new attendance record. The success of this event comes as no surprise because when it comes to demographic profiles of homeowners in the entire Midwest, the North Shore area is second to none and if you’re interested in meeting thousands of them in just one weekend, this is the event for you.

Naperville, IL – Players Sports Center – April 6th & 7th, 2019

The Naperville / Fox Valley area is an affluent, heavily populated and highly sought after market area. With a perfect mix of a huge population of homeowners, well above average demographics as well as a combination of both newer and older housing stock, this event has no equal in the area for attracting quality homeowners from this fine area. Attendance for 2018 was easily a new record with amazing exhibitor feedback, leading us to a 2019 event that will easily have it’s strongest ad plan ever. The first section, the 20,000 sq. ft. “Green zone” is expected to sellout in the next few weeks, so you guessed it… contact us today if you’d like to join us at this event.

St. Charles, IL – Pheasant Run Resort Mega Center – April 13th & 14th AND Oct. 5th & 6th

Lake County, IL – Lake County Fairgrounds – April 27th & 28th AND Oct. 19th & 20th

Like the Tinley Park Show, Home shows have been run at the Fairgrounds ever since it was built. Our very first show here in 2017 was the largest and most heavily attended home show to ever take place in Lake County with over 10,000 homeowners streaming through the door right from the start. Our 2018 event was much larger and we added thousands of attendees to the turnout. It was a fitting finish to the busiest home show season ever delivered in the Chicagoland area by one producer. This year, the Lake County show actually grew to be the largest home show in the entire Chicago metro area! With a footprint as large as an NFL Football field (endzones included), this event also pulled attendance in the 15,000 range like the Tinley Park Show….in just our second year running If you are looking for buyers by the thousands in Lake County, this is the one and only home show you need to be in, so call or email us today for the latest availability.  Plus!  Those who confirm space in the April show have priority rights to select space in the Lake County Home Show on October 19th & 20th!

Key aspects that our 2019 Home Shows will have in common are:

1) All facilities are very clean and well finished for environments that are welcoming and comfortable to both exhibitors and attendees.  Several are among the finest you’ll find anywhere.
