The 2014 Port Elizabeth Algoa FM HOMEMAKERS Expo will be held within our new and beautiful locale of The Boardwalk where the expo will provide an unmatched opportunity to connect with PE's leading home improvement experts. Here you can experience and discuss the very latest home improvement, décor, furniture and home lifestyle trends and products.

The line-up of show features and points of interest include the CHAIRS FOR CHARITY, where local designers are challenged to upscale an old kitchen of dining chair into something bold, bright and individual. See these chairs at the HOMEMAKERS Expo where they will be auctioned off for charity.

Don't miss the popular Eastern Cape BARISTA CHAMPIONSHIP and COFFEE LOVERS THEATRE hosted by SCASA (Speciality Coffee Association of Southern Africa). Top baristas and coffee experts will entertain, inform and inspire you with their impressive performances and knowledgeable insights into coffee preparation and serving.

Meet the hilariously funny and extraordinarily talented local comedian, GINO FABBRI as "The Dealmaker" at this year's expo, where he will literally be cutting special deals in half for our visitors! Follow Gino around the venue to benefit from great specials!

The KIDZONE will offer your children a fun-filled time while you amble at your own pace. At the KidZone we'll be keeping it simple, making it fun and giving parents peace of mind! Simple games from yesteryear offering ideas of how to integrate simple play at home. Children will be encouraged to interact in a number of imaginative games as well as classics, like snakes and ladders and checkers, brought to life on a larger scale. Creative activities like Sandart and the opportunity to design a T-shirt. All in a secure environment allowing parents to enjoy the expo to the full!

HOMESECRETS is a new introduction at this year's expo. Visitors will be introduced to some local style secrets known by designers and decorators for their specialised skills and craftsmanship. Pop in and see SPRAY - BY NEIL PURDON, a family owned business specialising in custom paint finishes of every imaginable option; PAM DE BEER - COLOUR CONSULTANT, an excellent place to start with thousands of paint colours waiting to be explored; STYLE SHADES, a business specialising in the design and manufacturing, restoring and recovering of custom made lamp shades; BEETLE & RHUBARB, homespun treasures locally crafted.
