The Ideal Home Show 2018, held at Olympia London from 17 March to 2 April, has announced its line-up of property experts.
The show, sponsored by Zoopla, will feature Phil Spencer, Charlie Luxton, Martin Roberts and Kunle Barker, giving visitors the benefit of their property knowledge and specialist areas of expertise. Providing tips and advice to the public, visitors can see them live at the show throughout the 17-day event on the Super Theatre stage.
With recent data from Zoopla revealing that the average price of a home in Britain went up in value by £9,652 during 2017, with each property increasing by £28 per day, the property market would appear to be in rude health. Given the current strength of the market, would-be homeowners and investors are being advised to spend wisely – whether that be on securing a dream home or looking to maximise their investments.
The celebrity property experts aim to help with that mission, with Phil Spencer answering questions in an exclusive Q&A session and sharing experiences of his hit TV shows Location, Location, Location and Love It or List It (currently showing on Channel 4).
Joining Phil Spencer will be agricultural designer and TV presenter Charlie Luxton, who will focus on sustainable architecture. Martin Roberts – one part of the Homes Under the Hammer presenting team and a former I’m a Celebrity contestant – will also be on hand to offer advice on buying property at auction, while Kunle Barker, property expert and presenter of ITV’s prime time Love Your Home & Garden, gives top tips to help homeowners realise the potential ‘hidden inside their bricks and mortar’.
“I really enjoy this event,” Phil Spencer said. “The Ideal Home Show showcases the latest innovations, the brightest ideas and offers so much inspiration to the thousands of visitors that attend. It’s a great day out and also provides consumers with as much information as possible to help them make better-informed property decisions.”
In addition to the property experts gracing the Super Theatre stage, the Ideal Home Show will also feature a whole host of other celebrities and experts providing exclusive demonstrations and top tips for every area of the home. This includes home improvements, interior design, home entertainment, gardening, expert workshops and inspiring home advice.
“We are very pleased to announce Phil, Charlie, Martin and Kunle as part of our line-up for 2018,” Rob Nathan, marketing director for the Ideal Home Show, commented. “It is a fantastic opportunity for the public to learn from the best and come face-to-face with some great personalities.”
The Ideal Home Show celebrates its 110th year anniversary in 2018. This time out the show is made up of six sections: Interiors, Home Renovation, Gardens, Style, Homewares and Home Accessories, and plays host to over 600 exhibitors. Visitors are promised an array of exclusive offers and a packed programme of talks and demonstrations to keep them occupied throughout.
What’s more, foodies are well-catered for at the event, with celebrity chefs and drinks industry experts taking to the ‘Foodie Stage and Drinks Station’ at the Eat & Drink Festival, which takes place alongside the Ideal Home Show. Attendees to the Ideal Home Show can enjoy free entry to the Eat & Drink Festival, with a number of leading street-food and world-class chefs cooking up a storm.
