Tips for Visitors

Tips to make your visit a success

Home & Interiors will offer a wealth of fun and fabulous exhibits and features you won’t find anywhere else. It will showcase ideas for your home and garden and offer an opportunity to save money on almost any project.

You can see, feel and listen to the products you are considering and there will be plenty of experts on hand to give free advice.  You can also save time by visiting many companies in one place without having to drive around the country or spending hours on the internet.

If you have challenges with any of your living spaces, you can find solutions because the Home & Interiors event offers hands-on exhibits relating to kitchens, design, outdoor living, a great selection of building/remodelling products, and green products.

Sometimes it can be hard to visualise what a product would look like in your home and we can help bridge that gap because our exhibitors will display and showcase examples of what their products actually look like when they are in place.


Before the Show

Make travel and accommodation bookings early to maximise on discounted rates.

Stay at accommodation close to the venue to save on travelling and to give you a place to rest, sort through information gathered, and refocus your energy.

Be prepared with a pen and notepad to jot down important notes for the many new ideas and products you will see.

If you’re contemplating a particular upgrade, bring along the plans or even a sketch of your proposed project to discuss with the experts.

Take colour swatches, measurements of spaces and walls so that when you see the perfect piece you will know instantly if it fits.

Take a light and comfortable carry-all for accumulated materials.

Choose the seminars that are relevant to you and allow enough time to sit in (half an hour each) and follow up with the presenter afterwards if you have more questions. 

Take advantage of the special show prices while you’re there.

Home & Interiors will have a show supplement available in the days prior to the show opening. Watch the Wairarapa Times newspaper for this valuable guide.
