Expo this weekend
Placeholder Image

There are still spots left for those wishing to exhibit at the second annual North Georgia Home Expo — a trade show for builders, remodelers, realtors and more.


The expo is planned for Feb. 26-27 at the Lakeview Center, 2057 Dawson Forest Road East. The event is organized by the Dawson Lumpkin Homebuilder’s Association.


Association Executive Officer Lori Lewis said last year’s inaugural event was a success with more than 700 in attendance.


“We’re looking for even more this year,” Lewis said.


She added that the event is intended for the general public, “not just for people who are in the building industry.


“Everyone from banks to insurance companies to contractors, landscapers ... a little bit of everything,” she said.


In addition, she said, there will be door prizes and giveaways.


Those who would like to reserve a booth and guarantee a spot at the show should contact organizers no later than Friday.


Applications for the expo can be obtained by calling or e-mailing Lewis at (561) 254-4494 or


For members of the Dawson Lumpkin Home Builder’s Association, it’s $375 for a regular booth and $450 for non-members.


For a booth in the lobby, it’s $450 for members, and $525 for non-members.
