Consumer shows combine forces to create spectacular home and flower event
Mid-Atlantic Home and Flower Show
What do you get when you cross the Mid-Atlantic Home & Garden Show, held each March at the Virginia Beach Convention Center, with the Virginia Flower & Garden Show, held each January at the same venue?

You get the Mid-Atlantic Home & Flower Show, presented by Tidewater Builders Association and The Virginia Horticultural Foundation on February 15-18, 2007.

“We’re bringing together two of the biggest consumer shows in Hampton Roads under one big roof,” says Tidewater Builders Association President John Olivieri. “Our event has traditionally been a place to explore the latest products on the market for your home. Their event is known for lavish display gardens and horticultural experts. Consumers gain a show that can truly help them with both their indoor and outdoor living spaces.”

The event is expected to feature over 600 exhibits and to draw over 25,000 guests. It will feature celebrity speakers and horticultural experts who cover a range of topics pertaining to the home and garden.

“We are combining the best of both shows,” says David Wike, Chair of the Flower Show.
With a cadre of 300 volunteers, the Flower Show’s theme of “dream gardens” will offer horticultural experts, children’s activities, window box competitions, a floral challenge, a European flower market and lavish display gardens.

“Our mission is education” says Wike. “But it’s more than teaching good horticultural practices. It’s the greater gardening community coming together for a festival. It’s a festival event, and it’s fun.”

On the home side, expect the construction of a systems-built (modular) home to take place inside the Convention Center during the course of the event.

It will be the 22nd year for Tidewater Builders Association’s home show and the 14th year for the Virginia Horticultural Foundation’s annual event.
