HIA Hunter Executive Director Craig Jennion said “whether you are planning to renovate or build, a first home buyer, investor or someone looking for inspiration, attending the Show will ensure you see the very best of the home, lifestyle and building sector. 

“Being held on 16 September, the HIA Building & Renovation Show brings together a sensational group of exhibitors to showcase the latest trends in renovation, building, home improvements and outdoor living and best of all it’s free to enter,” he said.

You can also meet the HIA team at the ‘HIA You’re in Good Hands Stand’, with information about apprenticeship pathways, industry training and HIA Membership benefits available.

Another recently added feature in the centre is the Hunter Alfresco Living display, which showcases the latest products and trends designed specifically for outdoor living. 

The Show has always been a family-friendly event and this one will be no different with lots of free children’s entertainment including games, face painting and special guest appearance by The Pretty Amazing Jono, Bob the Builder and Raymond the Ram. All your food and beverage needs will be covered with a barbecue for charity and a fresh coffee van onsite.
