HIA's You're in Good Hands stand

HIA staff were on site in 2022 to provide information and direct you to exhibitors able to assist with your building and renovation needs.
For those looking to join or already working in the industry, HIA can provide advice on pathways, training and professional development.
Make sure you come and say hello to the friendly and professional HIA team over the HOMEFEST weekend in 2023!

Something for the kids!

HIA's HOMEFEST Charity Partner for 2022, The Royal Flying Doctor Service Tasmania, had plenty of fun activities for the kids of all ages over the weekend.

The kids got to try out an aeromedical training simulator, flew their own mission using the virtual reality goggles or even practice their bandaging and stethoscope skills.

Free popcorn, lollypops, face painting, dress ups, colouring-in competitions and plenty more kids prizes were won from all of our awesome exhibitors!
