Marketplace Events buys two Winnipeg home shows

Marketplace Events of Cleveland, OH has purchased two consumer home shows from the Manitoba Home Builders' Association. The annual shows are the Kitchen, Bath & Renovation Show, held in January, and the Garden Show, held in March. Both shows take place at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg. With this acquisition, Marketplace Events now operates 13 annual shows in six Canadian markets, as well as 29 shows in the US.

"We've been nothing but impressed with the potential of the home show business in Winnipeg and with the leadership of the Manitoba Home Builders' Association," said Tom Baugh, CEO of Marketplace Events. "Based on the strong consumer show history of the Winnipeg market and the dramatic expansion of the RBC Convention Centre, our expectations of growth in Manitoba are significant. We think this is a smart acquisition, both short and long term."
