The QCBR 2023 Home Show was new and improved and a big success!
We are still excited about the many changes that were made to our 2023 Home Show!
The show was held February 17th, 18th & 19th.
After many years in Illinois, we decided to give Iowa a chance to host the show, and interest was huge! We had a sold-out show with over 110 different businesses filling both “The Fair Center” and the “Iowa Building” at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds in Davenport.
The show had a fresh new look, with new floorplans featuring large cluster booths, new pipe & drape and we also offered stage time to companies wanting to educate the audience about their particular business, and how they could help with your needs.
The Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds had ample parking for vendors and all who attended the show, and if you required a little help, we were ready to assist by offering rides on golf carts – making it a little easier and fun getting to and from your car or to the 2 Home Show Buildings.
The “load in” and “load out” process for the vendors was also an upgrade, as there were 29 overhead garage doors making this process a breeze!
Our mascot, Johnny Bear was also a hit! He made sure to meet all the participants, shaking hands, posing for photos, and passing out gifts to kids.
Both buildings had full concessions with great food and if you wanted a drink, you could have that too!
Our VIP Night was one for the books! We had amazing hors d’oeuvres, dinner and desserts catered from Bridges – plus we offered free beer, soft drinks and water and there was a cash bar, as well. And to kick-off the 2023 Home Show we brought in Quad City legend, Lynn Allen to perform!
So, whether you were a business participating in the show or a ticket buyer coming to check out all the latest trends, best products and new ideas, this show delivered!
