Building, Buying, Renovating or Enjoying

The Real Home Show 2012 on March 2, 3 & 4 offers consumers the ultimate experience!

Walking through the doors of the Halifax Forum March 2 – 4 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 three intercon- nected 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 2012.

“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, and ask lots of questions so that they will be able to walk away from the show with ideas for their next step.”

Building or renovating should be an experience you look forward to and one key way to achieve this is to do your research and find out the answers to your new home or renovation that will meet your family’s needs.


Be sure to check out the Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association’s display located in the back of the multi-purpose room which will include a display of construction techniques used in today’s building practices.


The heart of every home is the kitchen and to add to the show this year, Hamachi House returns once again as the official food sponsor to the show. Consumers can visit the onsite Bistro to enjoy their offerings.


What’s a great time without the chance to win something? Whether it’s a new kitchen, a $2500 travel voucher for a southern destination trip or even up to $500 in prizes, there will be lots of chances to play and win at the Real Home Show 2012.
