To meet the need for inpatient care, the exhibit hall of the Baltimore Convention Center has been converted into a facility to treat those recovering from COVID-19. With the uncertainty of when it will return to hosting professional events, Deck Expo is splitting off from the Remodeling Show, which will move to a new format in 2020.
DeckExpo, which previously co-located with Remodeling Show, will now co-locate with the International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo (PSP Expo) from Nov. 11-13 in Las Vegas for the first time.
“Outdoor living is an important segment that’s been on the rise for several years in the pool, spa, and patio communities,” said Ray Giovine, show director for the International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo. “The great energy and audience DeckExpo has cultivated will be key to our combined success as we work together to better serve our industries. We look forward to welcoming DeckExpo among our outdoor living partners, and we can’t wait for a successful show.”
This year’s Remodeling Show will be held in a digital format over the same dates, Oct. 13-15. Through virtual technologies and platforms, the show will continue to showcase the latest building products and techniques, while providing unique opportunities to expand professional reach. As the education program shifts to a virtual experience, building clinics, product demonstrations, and conference sessions will be offered on-demand.
“While we still powerfully believe in the value of a physical event, having to innovate the Remodeling Show this year provided our team with an opportunity to rethink what makes Remodeling great. A big part of that is the education and thought leadership that the show provides, and we’re excited to work with our community to deliver our best in class conference program in a new and more dynamic way,” said Kristen McKercher, Remodeling Show director.
