The Housing Industry Australia Home Show will be touring the nation throughout the year, coming to Brisbane from March the 16-19th. The event will run over four days, showcasing the best kitchen and bathroom products, as well as the latest home appliances, surface finishes, flooring, furniture and household consumables. The event will be the ultimate experience for DIY enthusiasts and trade professionals alike, with a schedule of live shows planned to inform and advise.
The Brisbane HIA Home Show will run under the banner of The Courier Mail, with the newspaper supporting the event through great seminars and live demonstrations. For those looking to browse the latest home ornaments or appliances, the Home Show will feature home products from more than 250 exhibitors. Products that are just bracing the market will be on show, giving visitors the opportunity to see ScalaMirage patterned glass, side by side fridges from Liebherr and Rubicab Granny Flats.
For anyone a little unsure about their home renovations, a team of industry professionals will be in attendance to solve any home woes. With a free booking, visitors can bring any plans or photos to discuss over a twenty minute period with some of Australia’s best home renovators at the KBDi Advice Centre.
If you’re being dragged along, don’t fret. There’s going to be food, lots of food. Chef Lyn Michell will be utilizing the latest kitchen appliances that are being sold around the show to piece together some refreshing recipes. On the menu is Balsamic Chicken breast with pea & corn frittata, Muffins macerated in Lime & Lemongrass Syrup, Coconut Rice with Hot & Spicy Chicken Wings and much more.
