High expectations for year two of home show
Short & Paulk and Conger LP Gas host the South Georgia Home Showcase in Tifton.
Last year’s inaugural South Georgia Home Showcase drew some 1,500 attendees. “This year’s show will be much bigger,” says Jay Short, president and CEO of Short & Paulk Supply Co.
Short & Paulk is co-host of the second-annual Showcase, along with Conger LP Gas. The Feb. 11-12 event in Tifton, Ga., will feature more than 100 home improvement and propane manufacturers.
“We are building on last year’s event,” said Short. “Our goal is to create a venue where our friends in South Georgia can interact with the experts, see new and innovative products, discuss style and design trends, earn continuing education credits, and see live building science demonstrations.” [Read about the inspiration for the event here.]
