New Home Technology To Be Highlight Of March Expo
Advances in technology for the home and remodeling trends will be showcased in this year’s Home & New Product Show. Presented by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser and Pacific Expos, the show is scheduled for March 27-29 at Blaisdell Center Exhibition Hall.
“The show has been ‘re-invigorated’ with many exciting new exhibits and drawings for prizes, including trips to Las Vegas throughout all three days of the show,” said Pacific Expos Event Producer Jadelin Chun. “There will actually be a chance to win $1 million. Attendees will have an opportunity to sign up to become one of 20 lucky individuals who will be chosen on Sunday, the closing day of the show. On a date to be announced, these individuals will gather in the iHeart Radio Music Hall, where one of them will have a chance to win a million dollars. We’re very excited to offer this game in this show.”
Attendees will have a hands-on opportunity to experience new technologies and new products coming out in the Hawaii marketplace, for example, Oceanic Time Warner Cable’s “Intelligent Home.” Among the special exhibits are The Man Cave Zone and Crafters Village. Those who might be interested in investing in a Hawaii-based start-up company should make it a point to check out the “Live Blue Start-Ups Technology Accelerator Show” at 6 p.m. March 27.
“The mission of this show is to provide all the information any homeowner or home improver might need to upgrade their living environment and lifestyle. Top professionals from Hawaii’s building and remodeling industry, landscape companies, garden suppliers, home furnishings and appliance vendors will all be there and available to talk one-on-one with show attendees,” Chun said. “They will provide handouts and many will be holding their own prize drawings.”
Show hours are from 5 to 10 p.m., March 27; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., March 28; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., March 29.
