Canadian shelter mags get face time with style divas

The first annual Style at Home Show in Toronto is expecting more than 20,000 visitors to interact with exhibitors, celebrity style experts and advertisers.

The first annual Style at Home Show – bringing to life leading Canadian home and garden magazines like Style at Home, Canadian Gardening and Canadian Home & County – will take place from Oct. 17 to 19 at Toronto’s Exhibition Place.

The event is backed by an extensive media campaign in print, online, radio and television. Promoted more as a shopping event and less as a home show, the Style at Home Show entails sampling and live presentation opportunities for brands before an expected crowd of 20,000-25,000 consumers with decorating questions.

At the show, the HomeSense Celebrity Main Stage will feature HGTV personnel such as Sarah Richardson, Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan. Attendees can also meet with Style at Home magazine’s senior design editor, Margot Austin.
