The Johnson County Home Remodeling Show returns

The Johnson County Home + Remodeling Show was canceled just two days before it opened at Overland Park due to the pandemic. It’s finally back this weekend. Many of the sellers hope it will get their businesses back on their feet. Getting ready for a major remodel show is no joke for the salespeople opening a store. Cropping, trimming and looking the front display means everything. For some, like Rob Kenley, provider of Eco Spa KC, it’s less about the display and more about the show itself. “75% of our hot tub sales come from home shows,” said Kenley. Last year when they were preparing for the Overland Park show, COVID-19 closed everything. “They told us to go home about two days earlier,” Kenley said. The news was devastating to Eco Spa KC’s business. At least Kenley had a place to relax while he tried to figure out what to do next. “Yeah, luckily we had a few lying around,” said Kenley. Overland Park Home Show Manager Shannon Nathe is excited to be part of this year’s rejuvenated Home Show. More than 150 suppliers have an exhibition this year. Samantha Juchem set up the display for Ecovole Solar on Thursday. “There will be a lot of traffic and that is very important to us,” said Juchem. Many of the salespeople say the show, which didn’t take place last year, caused a lot of uncertainty. The show, which returns to the Overland Park Convention Center this weekend, is at least a little return to normal. “We still have a long way to go, of course, but it’s a step in the right direction,” said Kenley. The show says ticket sales are higher than they have been this weekend. Each booth should be placed at least 10 feet apart. The Johnson County Home + Remodeling Show opens Friday and runs through Sunday evening.

The Johnson County Home + Remodeling Show was canceled just two days before it opened at Overland Park due to the pandemic. This weekend it’s finally that time again.

Many of the providers hope that they will start their business again. Getting ready for a major remodel show is no joke for the salespeople opening a store. Cutting, trimming and the beautiful look of the display front mean everything.
