The foundations have been laid for the 2015 Scottish Home Show – launched today by organisers Xcite Media and main sponsor Dandara – which promises to be the biggest and best home and garden exhibition in Scotland.
Excitement is building brick-by-brick as the final plans for the show are unveiled with special guest appearances cemented in place from celebrity interior designer Linda Barker, and TV gardening gurus Tommy Walsh and Charlie Dimmock.
Extending from the lavish to the more practical home and garden merchandise, the Scottish Home Show, taking place at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre from September 25 to 27, will showcase the best products and design innovations in the home improvements market.
From groundbreaking new technology, tools, garden designs and conservatories, to the latest home interiors, bathrooms and kitchens, there’s everything you need to transform your home.
Premium developer Dandara, renowned in north-east Scotland for its high-quality new communities, including Hazelwood and Stoneywood, continues its support for the event as main sponsor for a third year.
Big-name exhibitors already confirmed to appear at the show include household names such as Aga, Bang & Olufsen, Costco, Treehouse and Baxters Food Group, with many more signing up daily.
Darren Ross, director of event organisers Xcite Media Ltd, said: “We are so proud to be back at the AECC again this year, having put together an amazing line-up for our 2015 show. Thanks to the ongoing support of our sponsors and exhibitors, this year we are able to present a show, which in our opinion is our best yet.
“We are privileged to welcome back Linda Barker and Tommy Walsh this year, as well as introducing gardening’s favourite female, Charlie Dimmock, to the show. All celebrities will be hosting a selection of fantastic demonstrations throughout the weekend, providing top tips that you can do yourself at home.
“Due to the popularity of each at last year’s show, we are dedicating self-build and gardening their own zones for the first time. Charlie and Tommy will be based in these zones and hope to have some fun with visitors throughout the weekend.
“We also have live cooking demos with all the celebrities and an area dedicated specifically to buying a new home. From financial and mortgage advice to liaising with premium home builders to secure a plot on the latest development, we have everything you need to know.”
Peter Best, sales manager for Dandara, said: “The Scottish Home Show is the perfect place to show off the benefits of buying new to one of the hungriest house-buying markets in the UK, and we are very pleased to be back as headline supporter of the show for a third year.
“Demand for our new homes at Stoneywood and Hazelwood keeps rising and our showhomes are one of the most-visited attractions in the north-east – creating the Lego ‘mini-me’ version of our Hazelwood Spruce showhome was our way of showing that while doing it yourself can be fun, there’s no substitute for the real thing.”
The Scottish Home Show will this year be raising funds for the Aberdeen FC Community Trust (AFCCT), a recently established standalone charitable organisation and partner of Aberdeen Football Club, that will enable relevant community activities to significantly expand within the city and throughout the north-east of Scotland.
