About the Show
First organised in 1979, the Perth Home Show attracted more than 20,000 homeowners looking to build or renovate properties. Showcasing the latest trends and products, the event is designed for serious home builders and renovators that have high disposable incomes. It is supported by Master Builders Western Australia and the Housing Industry Association (HIA), which is the Perth Home Show’s main sponsor. The show is put on by EEA, one of Australia’s largest home show organisers and marketers. According to organisers, approximately $11.4 million in business is generated at or after the show and $5 million in immediate sales are made at the event.
The Build & Design Stage showcases the latest trends in the home building and renovation industry. Leading experts also shared practical renovation and DIY ideas that will help transform properties, both inside and outside. All areas of the home were covered, from creating stunning gardens and landscaping to stylish bathroom and kitchen designs. Sessions were free to attend with addition to the Perth Home Show.
