This year, over 400 exhibitors will fill the BC Place Stadium with everything from Jacuzzis to bed mattresses, furniture items, fireplaces, massage chairs, kitchen gadgets, window displays, and outdoor home decor elements. There will also be a significant number of lawn care services, gutter repair, outdoor patio furniture, and lighting professionals in attendance.
