Exhibition Park introduces new website for virtual Home and Garden show

E-mail Print

As expected, due to Covid restrictions on large gatherings, the Lethbridge Home and Garden Show, originally postponed to April 7-11, is now pivoting to an online event.


“We’re not allowed in person events due to safety restrictions,” said Exhibition Park Marketing supervisor Mike Wurchterl, noting there will be an online directory to allow vendors to connect with their customers at http://www.hglethbridge.ca


The online platform goes live on Wednesday, April 7, 2021, coinciding with the previously scheduled opening of the in-person Southern Alberta Home & Garden Show 2021, which will not be taking place this year due to indoor gathering restrictions.
Wurchterl noted there is an interactive  map to allow  visitors to locate businesses of interest closest to them.

“ It’s an interactive directory. It’s a nice feature that can remain in place even when we can have in person events again,” he said.

 


 There is also a show guide and contact information and social media contacts for Southern Alberta businesses.


“ We hope people will shop local when they decide to renovate. It’s an opportunity to support home grown business,” he continued.
 They had started preparing  the website  when the event was originally postponed in January.
“In light of the current restrictions we are ensuring that the businesses that participate in the Home & Garden Show still have a place to feature their products and services to the community for the full 12 months of the year,” wrote Lethbridge & District Exhibition COO Mike Warkentin in a press release.
