The Holmes Magazine, the Magazine to Make It Right, 2010 Tour featuring Mike Holmes, host of Holmes On Homes® on HGTV, takes off this week and Belgard Hardscapes will be there every mile of the way.
The 2010 tour kicks off in Nashville on Nov. 18, then heads south to Atlanta (11/19) before bussing up the east coast to Charlotte (11/20), Richmond (11/21) and New York City (11/22). A pre-Thanksgiving stop in Pittsburgh (11/24) precedes its final stop in Chicago for a Black Friday event on Nov. 26.
Holmes is best known as host of Holmes on Homes® on HGTV where he helps rescue homeowners from repair and renovation disasters. The Holmes Magazine Tour is the promotional launch of the new consumer magazine being offered in the US.
Mike Holmes will be present at each tour location to sign autographs and meet fans, while Belgard representatives will be in attendance to interact with event goers and handout giveaways.
“This is a great opportunity to interact in a fun way with our customers and to make more homeowners aware of the benefits of adding an outdoor living space to their home,” says Ken O’Neill, vice-president of marketing for Belgard.
While Holmes primarily concentrates on home repairs, Belgard sees the tour as an opportunity to connect with homeowners who may also be interested in adding value and enjoyment through a new or renovated outdoor living space. And as the country’s premier outdoor hardscapes provider, Belgard is ready to assist homeowners however they may need it.
