2018 HOME SHOW

April 13-15, 2018

18 Vendor App • 18 Floor Plan

Continued Success at this Year's Show

The 47th Annual Greater Olean Area Home Show welcomed more than 2,537 visitors April 13-15 (about 200 less than last year).  Eighty-three vendors were on hand to display and demonstrate products from hot tubs, to gardening supplies, along with heating and cooling systems.  The event, hosted by the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce, was co-sponsored by their fifty-four corporate sponsors.

Brianna Eaton, Refined Furnishings of Olean stated, “I received a lot of positive feedback for my business, many sales.  A few folks have expressed interested in my refurbishing some of their own pieces as well as donating some for me to refine and sell.  The home show was an amazing opportunity to get my business name out there.”
 
The vendors at the Home Show were enrolled in a contest for “Best Booth” based on neatness, presentation, props, information, and theme-related.  The theme this year is “#destinationRenovation.”  Winners for 2018 Greater Olean Area Home Show go to BEST USE OF THEME – VanDyke Agency of Great Valley, NY; BEST OVERALL BOOTH – Countryside Woodworking, Penn Yan, NY. Congratulations to both and thanks to the judges for their time and coordination.  Prizes are discounts on 2019’s Greater Olean Area Home Show rental.
 
"The construction and new improvements at the William O. Smith Rec Center that started right after last year’s home show were great for our home show visitors and our vendors, stated, Meme K. Yanetsko, COO GOACC.   Visitors were treated to a separate demonstration area, inside one of the party rooms at the center.  The demos all appeared to have many in attendance due to this separated space.  Also, the concrete flooring through out the center had a softer material place on top durable for ice skates to walk throughout the center, but very accommodating to all the visitors.  And lastly, the restrooms in the main lobby — obviously aged and well used, the bathrooms both saw updated facilities."

Ion Zimmerman, of Countryside Woodworking, added, “The Olean Home Show gave us a chance to inform visitors of our poly outdoor furniture for decks and patios, including tables and Adirondack chairs. We made some great new friends and had a decent amount of sales.”          

The winner of the Home Depot of Olean /Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce Home Show Door GRAND PRIZE: -- NEXGrill 5-burner grill went to Erin Hitchcock, Olean.
