HONOLULU- The 10th Annual BIA Remodel It Right, Remodel It Green Expo, held on the rescheduled dates of September 5-7 at the Blaisdell Arena, generated a significant decline of attendees compared to the 10,000 attendees last year. Sponsors Servco, Hawaii Gas, Honsador Holdings and Gentry Homes presented Hawaii’s top contractors, suppliers, building industry experts and associates. The unique "Meet the Experts, Remodel It Right and Remodel It Green” interactive presentations offered educational round table sessions with experts from the entire spectrum of the remodeling industry.       

 

Gladys Quinto Marrone, BIA-Hawaii CEO stated, "We had several challenges with the rescheduled expo that ranged from confusion on our new dates and location, to the many other events including the UH Football and Volleyball games and the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival. Our total attendance of 4,000 is a 60% decline below last year and the lowest number of attendees since this event premiered in 2005. Our exhibitors reported solid leads from attendees who were very serious about coming to get information for specific renovation projects. Many families came to the Expo this year that were very actively planning multi-generational remodeling projects and interested in seeking information from our experts. Our ‘Meet the Experts’ seminars were packed and the most popular exhibitors featured products and services for kitchens, bathrooms and the latest remodeling trends. Since approximately 60% of Oahu homes are more than 50 years old and could benefit from a remodeling project, we are very committed to this building industry consumer event that is designed to educate homeowners in a collaborative environment.”
