More than 10,000 people looking for home ideas and inspiration are expected to visit Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre this weekend for the Scottish Home Show, sponsored by premium developer Dandara.
Now in its sixth year, the three-day event promises to be a one stop shop for anyone who is looking to move or improve with expert advice available on everything from taking on your first mortgage to DIY, interior design and gardening.
Celebrity builder Tommy Walsh will be on hand to share his DIY hints and tips with visitors and there will be live demonstrations including home improvement and flower arranging masterclasses at the main stage.
Tommy will also be served his ‘food heaven’ or ‘food hell’ in the event’s version of popular TV cooking show ‘Saturday Kitchen’ with Eat on the Green chef Craig Wilson taking inspiration from the event’s redesigned food and drink area ‘Food Street’.
For the first time, visitors will be able to download a Scottish Home Show app which features an interactive map, all exhibitor’s details, full demo schedule and live news feed. There’s also an opportunity to win prizes including a limited edition framed Ron Lawson painting, champagne afternoon tea for two at Meldrum House and a chair from Stirling furniture.
The Scottish Home Show was acquired by SHS Exhibitions Ltd in November 2016.
New managing director, Allison Walker said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors to this weekend’s Scottish Home Show in Aberdeen, it’s the perfect event for anyone who is thinking about making a move or looking to get creative in their current home.
“We have more than 200 exhibitors coming along, promising a really varied and exciting line up which visitors can explore on our app.
“We are extremely grateful to our main sponsor Dandara, who has supported the event since it began and to Tommy Walsh who always goes above and beyond to make the event a success.”
Peter Best, head of sales at Dandara in Aberdeen, says: “The Scottish Home Show is always a fantastic event so we’re really pleased to show our support for the sixth year running.
“Our friendly Dandara sales team is looking forward to welcoming visitors to our stand where they can find out more about our beautiful homes at Hazelwood, Fairley Grove and Stoneywood, and the benefits of buying a new energy-efficient home built to deliver the ‘Dandara Difference’.”
