PRESS RELEASE — AS the festive season draws near, planning of the highly anticipated Home Showcase kicks into high gear. The Property Race Home Showcase presented by Courts is set for December 14-15, 2019 at the Grande Pavillion in Rodney Bay (temporary structure near the Yacht Club). The event will welcome scores of exhibitors and presenters showcasing opportunities for land and home purchases, mortgage information, décor and household goods and even opportunities to shop around for service providers. Conceptualised by the management of Property Race, a new tv show all about owning your home, the event will bring all key stakeholders under one roof for a weekend of shopping and networking.
The event which is free for attendees, will provide a warm and energised environment for shopping with exclusive deals, and of course, sensitization of various aspect of home ownership. A critical component at the Welcome Cocktail on December 12th, 2019 is the launching of the Getit App (interactive online space for consumers to shop around for service providers in a safe space) and the promotion of an up-and-coming start up, Exotic Cuisine. All are welcome to attend to shop and be part of this first of its kind initiative.
A tradesman and contractor registry exercise are also earmarked for the period, to begin identifying the best of the best from each discipline, developing training and setting standards for the industry which will positively impact customers and the economy as a whole.
Exhibitors include but not limited to Courts Ready Finance, Bank of Saint Lucia, Excellent Stores, Décor Finishings, Caribbean Habitats, Radio Shack, GK Insurance, St. Lucia Woodworking United, IBS Inc, Caribbean Metals Ltd, Lara’s Construction, Cinnamon Hill, Model Homes, G&G Interiors, Bodley Works, Lewis Industries, H&L Environmental Services, Alternative Security, Calabash Condos, Quick Delivery, St. Lucia Bureau of Standards, Exotic Cuisine, AdVizze Consulting Inc, Flow, Mediazone, Fix It and Getit App. Visit www.propertyrace.com for all exhibitor information.
According to Event Coordinator Ms. Preville, AdVizze Consulting Inc, ‘We are excited to see the concept materialise into an actual event after years of planning, which will give attendees access to the providers for products and services, and also function as a platform for business development of the many small to medium enterprises and start-ups who are not in a position to promote themselves at this level.”
She added that the intervention of Invest Saint Lucia has added a new dimension to the event, as it is aligned with their new strategic direction. For Ms. Preville, “For businesses to thrive and the economy to grow, the onus is on us to create opportunities outside of the usual spaces we operate in. We hope this event will become a staple in the business development circuit and would like to encourage more businesses to participate.”
