6 reasons to visit the 2019 Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo + Win!

Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo with the theme Raw Comfort, takes place from 28 February – 3 March 2019 at the Ticketpro Dome in Northumberland, Johannesburg. The show is known for bringing homeowners and suppliers together offering ways for you to see, touch, feel and compare products and services. The HOMEMAKERS Expo gives you the opportunity to come face-to-face with the craftspeople or knowledgeable experts who provide visitors with the best understanding of the product.

This year the Johannesburg edition will boast over 350 exhibitors, covering 85 home related categories. With over 35 000 visitors to the show each year, you will not be the one missing out! Visit the lovilee Instagram account to WIN some tickets to this event!

Raw Comfort – to embrace perfect imperfections.

The theme for the show this year aims to empower the visitors to the show to get in touch with a more organic world. Gone is the need for peoples’ homes to look like the Joneses – Our homes are authentically us, stripped from all pretense. There is also a focus on product transparency, to shop with a higher conscience focusing on wellness and sustainability, wanting to know the person or story behind our purchase. A growing trend worth embracing.

8 reasons to visit the 2019 Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo

1. The Tuis|Home Theatre
The ever popular Tuis|Home theatre is back with food, wine and DIY demonstrations. The lovilees over at this local magazine has a programme lined up that will leave you skilled and inspired. Create your perfect Pinterest-worthy home!

2. Books and Banter Theatre (I am totally looking forward to this one!)
This is a first ever and exclusive to Johannesburg HOMEMAKERS Expo, the show will host a Wordsmith Theatre where Editor’s will gather in forum, where book publishers will sit amongst the writer and where we can comfortable look deeper into the life’s and stories of everyday bloggers. I am so looking forward to meeting the digital heroes and creatives behind the accounts and books that I follow on a regular basis.

3. Raw Workshops
The Raw workshop will bring a wealth of interesting demonstrations where craftsmen show off the beginnings of their product of trade. Find yourself at the heart of the development of manufacturing lines of products that we dream and plan to have in our homes.

Some of the raw products that you will get to know better in this theatre involve the making of steel creations, glass, wool and weaving and of course the ever popular medium of cement. Meet us in the Raw workshop where we will bring a refreshing showcase of how to work with concrete and how to use it in your décor. Proudly brought to you by World of Decorative Concrete (WODC).

4. Young Designers Challenge
The creative geniuses at the University of Johannesburg accepted the challenge to turn an existing power tool into a dual purpose machine. Their new hybrid tools could see a drill turn into a food processor. You will simply HAVE TO visit this years’ expo to experience the evolved multipurpose tools of the future.

5. Truly Artisan and Pets
Truly Artisan will once again not disappoint with the latest styles and buys for your home and ‘pawesome’ family members.

6. D’Vine Life
Families, friends and food-loving fanatics can whet their appetites to their hearts’ content at the HOMEMAKERS Food Market. Delightful delicacies await those with a passion for varying cuisine!
