RALEIGH, NC, July 23, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- MSA Marketing has announced its selection as media agency for the downtown Raleigh Home Show. MSA will assist Marketplace Events in growing media partnerships and maximizing exposure for the annual fall and spring shows.
Marketplace Events, North America's largest home show producer, recently purchased the two annual home shows, which have been held at the Raleigh Convention Center since 2008 when the venue first opened.
As the premier destination for home and garden enthusiasts, the annual home shows are the consumers' first choice for ideas and information on products and services related to home improvement projects, including renovation, remodeling and home decor.
"As the fourth fastest-growing U.S. metro area, coupled with the flourishing real estate and construction industries, Raleigh is a fantastic home show market," said Ryan Rose, Vice President of Marketplace Events. "We expect the downtown Raleigh Fall and Spring Home Shows to thrive within the community -- we're excited to grow these shows into not-to-be-missed experiences for both visitors and exhibitors."
Through accessing key marketing opportunities and identifying strategic media avenues, MSA will focus on effectively and efficiently reaching the targeted audience, in turn, driving attendance and awareness for the annual home shows.
"Marketplace Events is the preeminent home and garden show producer, with a wealth of success and experience spanning the North America. We look forward to building their consumer base in the community as well as across the region," said Jan Johnson, President and CEO of MSA.
The downtown Raleigh Fall Home Show will be held September 5-7, 2014. The downtown Raleigh Spring Home Show is February 13-15, 2015.
