The 99th Annual Indianapolis Home Show, held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds and Events Center, has been changed to April 23–May 2, 2021. The date change is due to the recent COVID-19 spike, increased limitations on large public gatherings and anticipated COVID-19 restrictions that could still be in place through January.
The Indianapolis Home Show, produced by Marketplace Events, has become an annual event attended by many Hoosiers for inspiration and tackling their home improvement projects. The show includes a wide variety of local home-related exhibitors, including home renovation and services, landscaping displays, décor ideas, home goods shopping and more.
Marketplace Events recently surveyed home show attendees during the pandemic and found that more than 53% of consumers are planning to do a room renovation, such as kitchen or bath. Nearly 70% are interested in comparing pricing, with 45% planning on spending more than $5,000. Interest in all home improvement project categories are higher than prior years, with home more important than ever to consumers.
“By changing the dates to late April, we are more confident in producing a safe and successful show for all involved,” said Laura Groninger, Show Manager at Marketplace Events. “We are diligently working on all necessary adjustments and look forward to reconnecting our local businesses and attendees.”
The Indianapolis Home Show typically features more than 500 exhibitors. Companies interested in being part of the show should contact Show Manager Laura Groninger at [email protected]
The show will be held Friday, April 23 through Sunday, May 2, 2021. Show hours will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. all other days. For more information, visit www.IndianapolisHomeShow.com.
Marketplace Events also produces the Indiana Flower + Patio Show, which is still, at this time, scheduled to take place March 13-21, 2021.
