About this Business for sale in Hawkes Bay

Great Profitable Business – Three Premium Home Shows

An opportunity of this type does not come along very often. After 25 years it is time for the current owners to take a break and pass the baton to someone else with fresh energy and drive.

What is on offer is three of the top Home Shows in the country:

  • Auckland South – running annually since 2014
  • Queenstown – running annually since 2011
  • Otago Home show – an amazing run of over 30 years of annual shows

These shows attract strong national brands and are well supported by the local businesses and trades, which is why Queenstown for example, sells out every year. The strength of the exhibitors is what makes these shows great, seeing crowds of visitors flock to them every year which has ensured the longevity of the shows.

Venues are already booked for the 2021 shows.

This is a true lifestyle business with hours that can be tailored to suit you. Currently run by a husband and wife team, they average around 20-25 hours each a week. Sometimes the ‘call’ of the beach or café is too great and wins over work.

The business is run out of Hawkes Bay at present, but it could be run from anywhere in the country.

Great profits mean that you could hire an events manager to co-ordinate the actual events if you wanted.

Strong shows – indeed they are. However, someone who is a bit more social media savvy could certainly help grow this business even more.

There is no doubt Kiwis are proud of their homes and we love nothing better than attending Home Shows to see what has come to the market and putting our ideas to the professionals who can turn those ideas and dreams into reality.

Preference is to sell the three Home Shows as a package but a good offer for a singular show would certainly be looked at.
