Participating organizations are Newton Housing Development Corporation, the Greater Newton Area Chamber of Commerce, Newton Development Corporation, Newton Convention & Visitors Bureau and the city’s marketing group, ‘Get to Know Newton’. All five have contributed both funds and volunteers to ensure that Newton is well represented at the show.
In addition, Iowa Speedway donated two 2016 Season Passes to the track’s upscale Newton Club as an Enter-to-Win sweepstakes prize, which will be awarded to one of the attendees who sign up in Newton’s booth during the show.
“We are grateful to our community partners for making it possible to have a significant presence for Newton at this important event in Des Moines,” said Natalie Umsted, Senior Analyst for the City of Newton. “We’ll be exposed to literally thousands of people over the next four days, and will have an opportunity to tell everyone that living, working, opening a business, or visiting Newton is their best choice!”
With expected attendance of over 60,000, this year’s Home & Garden Show will be held at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, where more than 400 exhibitors will offer insights on remodeling, kitchens and baths, landscaping, flooring, and home décor to attendees.
