The Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce will hold the 2012 Building & Design Expo this weekend at the Sheraton Keauhou Convention Center. The free event will feature dozens of companies representing home building, remodeling, landscaping, mortgage lending, insurance and interior design.
The Building Design & Expo runs Friday night 5-8 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. On Friday evening, musician Joe Conti will perform live from 5:30 -7:30 p.m.
Homeowners and renters alike can learn about the latest trends in building construction and design, interior and exterior design, as well as landscaping.
Landscape and plant presentations will be given on Saturday and Sunday and a tropical plant sale will be held during the entire Expo.
This is the eighth year the KKCC has held the Expo, which is the only show of it’s kind on the island. Although the show is held in Keauhou, companies from both east and west Hawaii participate in the Expo. Many vendors typically have “Expo-only” specials on goods and services. Typically, there are drawings and prize give aways during the Expo
This year many of the vendors contributed prizes that will be given away in a Grand Prize Drawing. One attendee will win the Grand Prize drawing valued at more than $3,000. Some of the prizes in the Grand Drawing include a two-night stay at the Sheraton Keauhou, $100 gas gift card, $100 gift certificate to Sam Choy’s, and many other items.
“As the leading advocate for business and commerce in West Hawaii, the Building and Design Expo is an excellent way to bring together our local businesses and the community by providing a venue that’s free and open to the public,” says Vivian Landrrum, president of KKCC.
