TORONTO, Oct. 5 /CNW/ - A transformation is taking place in homes across
the GTA. Condos are being snapped up. Re-sales are set for a record year and
housing starts continue to be brisk. The International Home Show, October 5th
to 8th at the International Centre, has more than 500 exhibits catering to an
increasingly affluent, knowledgeable and eco-conscious homeowner.
The internet may provide a starting point, but to select the right home
product or service busy consumers find that time spent comparing the real
thing under one roof, is the expressway to decision making.
The show's new Condo Living section, anchored by the Casalife Condo
Project reflects a sweeping change not just in downtown Toronto, but across
the GTA. The Project offers variable room layouts, colour stories and
multi-purpose furniture concepts that challenge misconceptions about small
Environmental concerns are driving change, and home show products address
that new consciousness. The show's ever-expanding Green Street is packed with
energy efficient and eco-friendly products. There's more on the sustainability
theme as environmental experts Peter Love of the Conservation Bureau of
Ontario, Virtuous Consumer author Leslie Garrett, Bio Builder Stephen
Collette, air quality specialist Peter Burke and many more offer direction
toward a greener home.
To make a house, a home, the show has free decorating advice and demos as
well as daily DIY seminars.
The International Home Show opens today Friday, October 5th through
Monday, October 8th at the International Centre, 6900 Airport Road at Derry,
Mississauga. Friday: 12 noon to 8 pm; Saturday: 10 am to 8 pm; and Sunday &
