Liquified Creative Annapolis

The Spring 2021 Homeowners Expo has been delayed due to the COVID outbreak in the area. “We are excited to get our shows back on track for 2022,” said Scott Smith, President of Mid-Atlantic Expos, “and to once again have our educational seminars for our guests this year, as well as many market exhibitors. with great products and homewares.” Admission is $6 for adults and kids under 17 are free!

In 2006, Mid Atlantic Expos launched its first community home and garden exhibit at the National Guard Armory in Annapolis. “I had this idea and chose Rupert Boneham, star of the television series Survivor, as a special guest. Rupert put up the radio and TV spots for me, and the theme was ‘Can you survive a home improvement project “?”

For the next 17 years, Mid Atlantic Expos has helped homeowners discover great opportunities for their homes with local and regional companies specializing in everything from walkways to roofs to landscaping. Most exhibitors do not have showrooms and are family businesses that depend on trade shows to serve as retail space to meet potential customers. Over the years, educational seminars have featured celebrity speakers including Sabrina Soto, Vern Yip, Alison Victoria, Nicole Simpson, Richard Karn, Tom Silva, Kevin O’Conner, Paul James, Jason Cameron and Matt Blashaw.
