Building, Buying, Renovating or Enjoying

The Real Home ShowThe Real Home Show 2011 on March 4, 5, 6 offers consumers the ultimate experience!

Walking through the doors of the Halifax Forum March 4 – 6 will be an exciting time for consumers who are looking at building, buying, renovating, or perhaps just looking to see what is available in the latest trends and styles. The four interconnected buildings will be transformed into an area which will display anything and everything one could think of to make the new home or renovation experience one that creates great excitement.

Walk in with a Vision.
Walk out with a Plan.

Professional builders, renovators, interior designers, products, samples and displays of all that is the latest and greatest ideas for an upcoming project will be on display at the Real Home Show 2011.

“The idea of the show is to provide options, opportunities and let consumers know what is out there that may be useful in their project,” says Paul Pettipas, chief executive officer of the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association. “We want people to get excited about their plans, talk to the professionals, attend the seminars and be able to walk away from the show with ideas for their next step.”


From the professionals in the various booths to the great line up of seminar topics, there is a great deal to participate in while at the show. The seminars offer valuable insight to topics that meet a variety of consumers’ interests and take place throughout the weekend. The schedule is included in this publication and will be available at the show. Bring questions and the answers will be easy to find.

Cleaner, Greener Options

The ‘green’ option in residential construction is growing strong! Along with an entire building dedicated to green building
options, vistiors to the show will also be able to identify companies offering green products by an easily identifiable sign
displayed in their booths.

HandyCam Challenge

Something fun to consider is to become involved in a new do-it-yourself renovation contest. The details will be at the show and consumers can find out how they can win up to $1000 in prizes for submitting short videos of their do-it-yourself minor repairs and maintenance over the next several months.


The heart of every home is the kitchen and to add to the show this year, Hamachi House is the official food sponsor to the show. Consumers can plan to sample some of the restaurants products at various times throughout the show, or plan to stay over the mealtime to enjoy their offerings at their onsite Bistro.


What’s a great time without the chance to win something? Whether it’s a new kitchen, a trip for two to a southern destination or even up to $500 in prizes, there will be lots of chances to play and win at the Real Home Show 2011.

Walk in with a Vision. Walk out with a Plan.
