The Building Industry Association of Hawaii’s Remodel It Right expo drew 7,767 people to the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, BIA-Hawaii said today.
Attendance was up slightly from the 7,696 that attended the event last year, said Karen Nakamura, BIA-Hawaii CEO.
“The top categories of interest were photovoltaics, kitchens and bathrooms, followed by windows, Energy Star appliances and green products that save people money with lower utility bills, rebates and tax credits,” said Nakamura in a news release.
“Since approximately 60 percent of Oahu homes are more than 50 years old and could benefit from a remodeling project, we are very committed to this building industry consumer event,” she said.
