Greater Charlotte Home & Landscape Show returns

Ati Williams of HGTV to share home improvement tips with show guests

The Greater Charlotte Home and Landscape Show will return in January to provide guests with the latest trends and products in home improvement, gardening, landscaping and outdoor décor.

Hosted by Marketplace Events and featuring a wide variety of exhibitors, the show will be held at the Cabarrus Arena and Events Center in Concord, where guests will be able to stroll through a variety of garden and landscape displays, shop for unique gifts, sample a variety of local wines and receive advice from experts in remodeling, flooring and much more.

At the Main Stage, guests will hear presentations from Ati Williams of HGTV. Williams was the host of HGTV’s “DC Flippers” and is the Principal of Honeycomb Residential. A renovation ninja, general contractor and design creative, Williams became interested in renovation and real estate when she purchased her first home and has since worked on dozens of renovations, from cosmetic builds to complete gut rehabs.

Pets for adoption from the Humane Society of Concord & Greater Cabarrus County as well as Krietzer’s Critter Corral Puppy Rescue will also be on hand at the show.

The show will be held from Friday, Jan. 24, through Sunday, Jan. 26. Show hours will be from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
