Karen Nakamura, BIA-Hawaii CEO stated,
“We are surprised and very happy with the results of this year’s show. Out total attendance of 9,743 is a +25% increase over last year and our Sunday attendance of 4,311 is the highest number of Sunday attendees since this event premiered in 2005. Our exhibitors reported thousands of solid leads from attendees who came to the Expo with their plans, specific questions and timelines. Many families came to the Expo this year that were very actively planning whole house remodeling projects and were interested in seeking information from our experts. Popular topics included saving money by reducing energy consumption with solar photo voltaic panels, energy Starappliances, windows and green products that save people money with lower utility bills, rebates and tax credits. 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.”
