LONDON, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
This year's Ideal Home Show, sponsored by Everest Home Improvements, opens its doors today - March 16th. The show will bring together over 600 different exhibitors and promises visitors a unique shopping experience, along with the chance to win a handyman for a day.
The first exhibition was held in 1908 at the Olympia exhibition centre, with sections dedicated to "phases of home life" such as construction, food and cookery, furniture and decoration. Demonstrations and contests included an arts and crafts competition and a competition to design the "Ideal Home".
Wareham Smith, advertising manager of the Daily Mail, founded the exhibition as a marketing event for the newspaper.
As well as offering the chance to win a handyman for the day Everest Home Improvements are also giving visitors the chance to win one of two other prizes:
1st Prize: Win your perfect entrance
The first-prize winner will receive a free Everest front door including installation.
2nd Prize: Handyman for a day
A "handyman" will spend a day at the winner's home. Everest handymen are trained professionals and will endeavour to complete any task, no matter how big or small, during the day.
3rd Prize: Subscription to Beautiful Kitchens or Ideal Home
Subscriptions to both Beautiful Kitchens and Ideal Home magazine will be gifted to five runners-up.
