(Cleveland, OH) - The recent agreement between the Industrial Realty Group (IRG) and I-X Center Corp. allows the Great Big Home + Garden Show, one of the largest and most successful home and garden events in North America, to return to the I-X Center, February 11-20, 2022, and future years.
After I-X Center Corp announced last September that the venue was closing permanently due to COVID, MPE made plans to move the Home + Garden Show to the Convention Center in downtown Cleveland starting in 2022.
It’s possible the 2022 Great Big Home + Garden Show layout will look different, depending on warehousing commitments in the South Hall of the I-X Center, traditionally the area where the event’s 30,000 square feet of feature gardens, showcased under theatrical lights are placed.The gardens, which take the area’s top landscape designers more than two weeks to install, may be relocated on the main show floor.
The company also announced that they intend to produce the hugely popular Cleveland Christmas Connection this year in its normal November date pattern.
More details on the Cleveland Christmas Connection, which attracts more than 400 exhibitors and 40,000 attendees over three days, will be announced soon. Marketplace Events produces six other shows in Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Des Moines and Charlotte, where they operate the 12-day Southern Christmas Show, the largest consumer holiday show in the U.S.
Those interested in exhibiting or attending the Cleveland Christmas Connection in November or the Great Big Home + Garden Show next spring, may visit GreatBigHomeandGardenShow.com for information.
