Our countdown to this year’s Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Expo is on. In less than two weeks, our team will converge on the Georgia World Congress Center, in Atlanta, Georgia, to experience one of the most significant indoor/outdoor lifestyle events, in the nation.
We’re looking forward to three busy days in the Almo Premium Appliances booth, #2513, but are also excited about the following events/happenings of HPBExpo 2017:
The “Almo Backyard” and Outdoor Kitchen Expedition
This year, we’re introducing a new space, as part of our exhibition, that speaks to the growing trend of luxurious outdoor kitchens; The Almo Backyard. Featuring the best in outdoor entertainment and living, the “Almo Backyard” will showcase a peerless-AV all-weather television, Hanover outdoor furniture and outdoor appliances from Liebherr and U-Line Corporation, that showcase modern amenities expected in today’s outdoor living spaces.
Additionally, The Outdoor Kitchen Expedition is on the road again, this time bringing its high-quality, luxury grills and grilling accessories to folks that eat, sleep and breathe barbecue and outdoor entertaining. With cutting edge products and new offerings from Alfresco, Artisan and Heat, the 40 ft. long, 14 ft. wide trailer is the anchor of the Almo Premium exhibition. Playing our favorite BBQ games, like cornhole and ladder golf, the “Almo Backyard” is a must see.
In all the excitement, we’re certainly looking forward to attending one of the many educational courses offered, March 1-3. With more than 50 seminars being offered, ranging in topics from Technology Integration in Business, to Best Ways to Sell Seasonal Products, to Competition in online spaces, the learning opportunities are endless.
New Product Pavilion
Known as one of the most popular areas to visit on the show floor, the New Product Pavilion, is brimming with the industry’s latest and greatest. We took a peek at some of this year’s entries and can’t wait to see these innovations, live and in-person. Our own Blaze Outdoor Products is showcasing its 20” Aluminum Kamado with shelves on cart and the 30” griddle on deluxe cart with shelves, in the Pavilion.
