SEMCO President Michael Schoppenhorst says, “The Spring Atlanta Home Show has experienced amazing growth during its 40 years in Atlanta. It has earned a well-deserved reputation for offering attendees a fun, festive atmosphere where they can see new products demonstrated, ask questions, talk to the experts, comparison shop and enjoy interactive presentations by popular home and landscape professionals. This is Georgia’s largest home show and it features hundreds of exhibitors who can bring new life to a home by building a new addition, replacing or repairing systems and structures, creating outdoor living spaces and refreshing both interiors and exteriors including decks, kitchens and baths. Show attendees can pick up product samples, schedule appointments and take advantage of Show specials.”
