44th Annual Home Improvement & Remodeling Expo
The Housing & Building Association is already thinking SPRING!
Turkey leftovers have been made into soups and casseroles and fall decorations are being replaced with Christmas trees and nativity sets. As fall turns into winter, the Housing & Building Association is already thinking SPRING!
Spending more time indoors give us a chance to look around our home and see the areas that need improvements, updates, and repairs. As we create our to-do lists for 2019, make sure you save the date for our 44th Annual Home Improvement & Remodeling Expo. Our 2019 Expo is taking place March 1-3rd at Two Rivers Convention Center, downtown Grand Junction.
Our expo is the oldest and largest on the Western Slope. Not only is the expo a great resource for finding the professionals to help you with your to-do lists, but it is also the best place to showcase your products and expertise to consumers as a vendor. If you have a product or service that you would like to showcase, keep reading for more information and answers to your questions about the event.
HOME EXPO FAQ’S: What types of vendors showcase their businesses in your show?
We have EVERYONE that is part of the housing industry under one roof during the three days of the expo! From builders/remodelers, landscapers, HVAC companies to suppliers for carpet/tile, windows, cabinets, spas, solar, mortgage lenders…just to name a few! The HBA’s Home Expo is a great way to get your product in front of potential consumers. By creating the one-stop-shopping environment, consumers feel at ease while looking for products and services, getting to know you and your sales team, being able to ask questions, as well as being introduced to the latest products on the market. Whether they are in the market for a brand new home or updating their current one, we want to have a wide variety of services in one location.

When is the deadline to reserve my booth or become a sponsor?
The deadline to reserve your space and be included in our vendor page in the official Home Expo Program is February 2, 2019. Due to high vendor demand, we usually sell out of booths mid-January. We have 125 booths available inside the convention center and 12 outside spaces located in the courtyard. Don’t wait until then, as we may not have any spaces left!
What advertising do you do for the event?
The HBA has a strong network of media partners, including The Daily Sentinel, News Channel 5/Fox 4, and The Vault 100.7! We work closely with these partners promoting the event in the weeks prior to and during the event. From live broadcasts to the official program, this event is heavily marketed on the Western Slope!

What is the Housing & Building Association of Western Colorado?
By now you are likely familiar with two of our largest events: The Home Improvement & Remodeling Expo in the spring, and the Parade of Homes in the fall. You may not be familiar with the organization behind them.
The Housing & Building Association of Western Colorado (HBA) is a not-for-profit professional trade-association that was chartered by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in January 1974.
Over the past 44 years, we have been promoting the housing and building industry on the western slope. Our members consist of companies that not only include builders, developers, and remodelers, but also trade contractors, landscapers, suppliers, plumbers, banks, mortgage lenders, title companies, and many more. Together we work to support our local construction industry.
The first image you may have when one mentions the construction industry is the builder wearing a hard hat, tool belt, cutting lumber and hammering nails. Think beyond that image to how this industry affects almost every business. From the architect, real estate professional, lender, materials suppliers (lumber, windows, doors, insulation), the product manufacturers, installers, (plumbers, electricians, flooring), to the landscapers and nurseries supplying the flowers, plants, trees, and let’s not forget the furniture stores supplying that new living room, dining and bedroom set. For every one home built, over THREE full-time jobs are created.
Whether it’s a remodel or new construction, these jobs are vital in our community and those across the country. Which is why we are here.
Affiliated with the National Association of Homebuilders as well as the Colorado Association of Homebuilders, our collective voice is strong and is heard from Denver to Washington D.C.
The State and National Associations watch the regulations and policies affecting those in the industry as well as the homebuyer, such as mortgage, finance, building codes, energy, and the environment.
Our association and our board of directors are committed to protecting the building industry and our community, keeping the American dream of homeownership in reach. To learn more about our association and our upcoming events, visit us at www.hbawesternco.com for an online list of our members.
