In addition to hosting over 600 exhibitors, the show will include many of its popular features, including celebrity speakers at the Speakers Lounge, hands-on learning at the DIY Centre and an on-site tour of a full two bedroom house + garden suite by Bonneville Homes.

Plus, a home show classic: the Ask an Expert booth, which offers visitors free 15-minute one-on-one consultations with home renovation and home design experts.

Visitors should bring ideas and floorplans – but also be sure to book a time slot early upon arrival at the show due to the popularity of this feature and the limited spots available.

The Ask an Expert booth is offered by BILD and RenoMark as a free, non-sales-related public service to make the expertise of BILD members available to GTA homeowners as they consider renovations.
