Home Show canceled, plans for next year | Newspaper


MARTINSBURG – According to Jennifer Church, Office Administrator at Eastern Panhandle Home Builders, even though the Eastern Panhandle Home Show is canceled this year, the team is eager to plan the event for the future.

“It’s canceled, but we’re looking at the spring of next year,” Church said. “Usually we have it in the spring, but we pushed it back this year because of COVID and ended up canceling it anyway. “

The event was postponed to February and was then officially canceled in August.

The show, which is typically held at the Berkeley Plaza in Martinsburg, was also canceled last year due to COVID-19, but in 2019, at the 24th annual event, the show was a big hit.

With over 3,800 visitors and 180 businesses in attendance, the Eastern Panhandle Home Builders Association looks forward to continuing the event into the future with similar, if not better, numbers once things get safer for large gatherings.

In a letter posted on the Eastern Panhandle Home Builders website to members, exhibitors and attendees of the Home Show, he said the EPHBA is committed to providing the community and members with a living room. quality housing.

“With this in mind, we have decided to postpone the 2021 Home Show and are actively planning a Home Show in the spring of 2022,” the letter said. “It was not an easy decision, however, due to some conflicts with our previous site, the timing of COVID-related restrictions, and feedback from our attendees, we felt it would be the best decision.”

The letter goes on to say that in 2022 there will be a new venue and new goals for success.

“We can’t wait to come back, to a new location in 2022, and have a more successful event for everyone involved. We will post more information on dates, times and location when that information becomes available, ”the letter said. “We look forward to seeing you at our Home Show in 2022.”
