Kona-Kohala Chamber's 2019 Hawai‘i Island Living & Design Expo – A Big Success!
With over 40 exhibitors under one roof, the 2019 Living & Design Expo was a huge success! Attendees were inspired by new home designs, ideas for home improvements and solutions for comfortable living.
Strong sponsorship started with HPM Building Supply and Honsador Building Products, the show’s headline sponsors, each with expansive booths full of innovative and exciting products and services. More sponsor support came from Dickinson General Contracting, Hawai‘i Community Federal Credit Union, Hawai‘i Gas, Renewable Energy Services, Royal Pools of Hawai‘i and West Hawai‘i Today.
Event admission and parking were free and activities included awards for best booths, fun games, prize giveaways and live radio D.J. Darde Gamayo from KAPA FM on Saturday.
Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Wendy Laros states, “Every booth space was taken on the convention floor and this provided an excellent selection for attendees. There’s really no other show like this on the island where the community can find inspiring solutions for comfortable living all under one roof on one weekend!”
