Big Crowds Come Out at Boston Home and Garden Show

By February 27, 2019Appearances, Latest News

It’s a good thing that most of the exhibits in the Life-Changing Products show are set up to be self-service. There were so many people packing the aisles at this year’s Home Show Boston that there was no way for curators to demonstrate them all.

Instead, visitors could open and close a refrigerator door, generating new photos of what’s inside on a tablet. They could turn on music and watch Nanoleaf lights start to dance. They could open a trash can with a simple verbal command. And the fun didn’t end there.

The Boston show is held at the Seaport World Trade Center in what’s known as South Boston. Many people came out to the show from new condominiums that have sprung up around the convention center. The weather cooperated: it was a balmy 40 degrees in February!
