65th Annual Rhode Island Home Show

PRESS RELEASE

65th Annual Rhode Island Home Show

Providence, RI, (March 3, 2015) - The Rhode Island Convention Center (RICC) will be home to the Rhode Island Home Show March 5 - 8, 2015. More than 20,000 people are expected to experience and explore the largest and longest running exhibition of its kind in Southern New England.

"It's not a traditional booth-oriented format, but an interactive event that will truly inspire you," said John Marcantonio, Executive Director of the Rhode Island Builders Association (RIBA). "Locally organized and produced here in the Ocean State, no other show comes close to the elements and experiences at The RI Home Show!"

"We are pleased to continue the RI Home Show tradition; each and every year the RIBA brings something new and exciting to the show," said Larry Lepore, General Manager of The Rhode Island Convention Center. "This year they are introducing a unique marketplace experience for both homeowner and vendor and there will be two houses to tour."

Showcase #1

Visitors will be able to tour a one-of-a-kind full-sized 32' x 48' seven-room home showcase. Started last September and built by students in the Carpentry Department at Providence Career Technical Academy (PCTA) with materials supplied by the RI Lumber & Building Material Dealers Association, the "house with no roof" will be assembled and finished on-site by the students prior to the show opening on March 5.

The show feature will become an interior design experience that will be fully furnished by Cabot House furniture in Warwick and decorated, in part, by the famous designer Karen Corinha.   

Showcase # 2

In addition, a 200-square foot Tiny House will also be on display and available to TOUR!  These small homes are becoming the latest trend in efficient "micro-living." Built by local manufacturer Tiny House Northeast, it will present a comfortable, livable interior design that intentionally makes use of available space. It highlights an application of materials, new and recycled, that are environmentally friendly or organic. To have the ability to see and tour one of these homes is an amazing experience for visitors to this year's show and is a must-see!
