New name, same great show

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES - By Todd Lewys

NEWS­FLASH: the Kitchen, Bath & Reno Show has a new name. The show — which is now run by Van­cou­ver-based Mar­ket­place Events — is now known as the Win­nipeg Ren­o­va­tion Show. How­ever, while the show’s ti­tle has changed, its fo­cus hasn’t, said Jill Kivett, Western Canada re­gional event co-or­di­na­tor for Mar­ket­place Events. “Ac­tu­ally, the big­gest change to the show is its name,” said Kivett. “While the Win­nipeg Ren­o­va­tion Show will en­com­pass all things ren­o­va­tions, its fo­cus will still be big on kitchen and bath ren­o­va­tions. Run­ning home shows is what we do — we run 13 shows across Canada and 30 in the United States. We be­lieve hav­ing our ex­per­tise be­hind the show will make it that much bet­ter.” One key area in which the show, run­ning Jan. 15-17 at the RBC Con­ven­tion Cen­tre, will be greatly im­proved is ac­ces­si­bil­ity and af­ford­abil­ity of show tick­ets. For the first time, peo­ple will be able to pur­chase tick­ets on­line at where adult tick­ets are $9.

“And there’s an in­cen­tive to do that. When you buy tick­ets on­line, you’ll get $3 off each ticket. Se­niors over 60 will also be able to get into the show for $5 be­tween noon and 5 p.m. on Fri­day, Jan­uary 15,” said Kivett. Those im­prove­ments aside, the show’s for­mat will re­main largely the same. Pop­u­lar

HGTV’s Bryan Baeumler will ap­pear Fri­day and Satur­day at the Win­nipeg Ren­o­va­tion Show.
