SANATOGA PA – The people have spoken, and their choices for best exhibitors during the recent Home Show at Sunnybrook Ballroom in Sanatoga – conducted by the Building Industries Exchange of Pottstown and Vicinity chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry – were announced Monday (April 22, 2013) by NARI-BIE Operations Director Eileen Gilbert.
The chapter awarded first-place honors to kitchen and bath specialists Luicana’s Unique Design of Boyertown; second to Pottstown residential contractor Hakun Construction Inc.; and third to Hetrick Gardens Landscape and Nursery Center, also in Pottstown. Awards were presented earlier this month during the chapter’s membership dinner meeting, Gilbert reported.
Thousands of people attended the show, which this year returned to its Sunnybrook roots, and many “enjoyed voting for their favorite display,” Gilbert noted. And “I enjoy listening to what criteria (on which) they base their vote,” she added.
Upon arriving at the 59th annual Home Show, adult visitors were given a ballot asking them to identify their favorite exhibit. Ballots were tallied at the close of the show. This the third year in which the chapter provided its audience with the opportunity to select top exhibitors. The show itself is what Gilbert called “a hometown event that provides an informational, no pressure, all-under-one-roof experience” for property owners and those who hope to be.
Next year’s show planning is already under way. Interested vendors, Gilbert said, should call the BIE at 610 323-1700.
