The 2014 Building & Remodeling Expo is set for February 14-16, 2014 and fast approaching.  There is still time to sign up for your spot with open spaces available yet at the Washington County Fair Park Pavilion. You can meet with local perspective customers at a much lower cost than other shows. We have free parking with reasonable entry costs for attendee's. There will also be many complimentary tickets available for you to hand out! 


This year we are featuring expanded advertising on Fox 6 along with our usual local radio and newspapers advertisement, and an ad in the MBA Home Building & Remodeling Expo(Downtown Milwaukee) handout. We will have guest speaker Gus Gnorski formerly from Channel 6's "Ask Gus" both Saturday and Sunday at 2:00. Last year Gus was one of the most successfully attended seminars in years. Again we will have children's birdhouse and toolbox building for the kids and children's face painting, always a huge success for the kids.


Sponsoring opportunities are filling up fast, but there are still some available. Our feature sponsor this year is Uptown Motors in Slinger.

Presidential_Message A Message from the WCBA
President, Dirk Wildt


Reflecting on the Associations progress over the past year I am happy to announce that the WCBA has had a good year.  Our events such as the Tour of Homes and The Home Building and Remodeling EXPO are increasing in vendor participation and with the bigger advertising budgets appropriated we are hoping to generate more interest with the general public and create larger attendance at all our events.


On another note, some of you may have heard that indicators are showing that there is going to be a significant increase in interest in home building and remodeling in 2014 and that it promises to be a better year than many have experienced in a long time.  Let's hope that the experts are right and may the New Year be the best it can be for all of you!


See you at the Holiday Party!
