Your home is your sanctuary, and you should treat it as such. Here to help you transform your living space into an oasis from the stress of everyday life is the Orlando Fall Home & Garden Show. The fall edition of this annual show is designed to inspire your home improvement efforts, and features items for indoor and outdoor spaces. Held at the Orange County Convention Center, the show draws hundreds of design, décor, building, and landscape experts each year. To get the most out of your visit, follow our tips for attending the Orlando Fall Home & Garden Show.
Create a Plan of Action
Check out the schedule of events before arriving at the convention. You won’t want to miss your favorite speakers and special presentations! Creating a plan beforehand ensures a smooth, calm day at the show.
Visit All Vendors
Before buying anything, it is a good idea to take a look at all of the vendor booths. You might find items that work better in your space or that are a better price. Once you’ve surveyed the offerings, you’ll be able to choose the best products for your home at the best price.
Bring Swatches or Photos of Current Projects
The experts at the Orlando Fall Home & Garden Show are here to help you accomplish your home improvement projects. Bringing photos of current projects or color swatches can help you visualize your creation and provide a context for the items you are looking at. You’ll also want to bring any necessary measurements so you don’t end up with items that are too big or too small for your space.
Wear Comfortable Shoes
As the second largest convention center in the nation, the Orange County Convention Center promises lots of walking. Since you’ll be on your feet all day, you’ll want to make sure you bring a pair of comfortable, worn-in shoes. There is plenty of room for strollers, so don’t hesitate to bring them if you’ll be attending with small children.
Pack a Snack
In addition to strollers, packing a small snack and a bottle of water is a great idea if the kids are coming along. Even if they aren’t, you may want to bring a snack for yourself. Hangry home improvement benefits no one.
Bring a Bag
As with all conventions, you’re bound to receive freebies, business cards, and more at the Orlando Fall Home & Garden Show. Bring a small tote bag to carry any freebies and samples you may receive.
Stay Close to the Fun
Try to book a hotel as close to the convention center as possible. This way you can enjoy more of the fun without the traffic and commute. When you stay at Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando, you’ll be within walking distance to the Orange County Convention Center. Plus, you’ll also be within minutes of other Orlando attractions so there will always be something to do. To book your Orlando stay, call 407-996-8585.
