Final preparations are underway for the 150 exhibitors on their way to the Home Expo in Kirchberg.

The event, a combination of the Home & Living Fair and National Housing Week, will open its doors from 9 to 17 October at LuxExpo The Box.

Housing and the notion of home have experienced a major revival among the population, following the confinement periods of the pandemic. Being forced to rethink their teleworking habits, many people have also reorganised their homes--or are planning to.

Institutional exhibitors will also be present at the event to provide advice on projects, particularly on those related to real estate or energy renovation.

“We are proud to say that Home Expo is an event that has withstood the crisis. It is the only one that has been able to take place without interruption thanks to the will of the participants and the strict sanitary protocol that we have put in place,” said Morgan Gromy, CEO of LuxExpo The Box.

The 2020 edition attracted fewer people but was held nevertheless.

Antique dealers and more

In addition to the housing professionals, Home Expo remains an unmissable event in the Luxembourg landscape and, as in previous years, will feature a large number of restaurants and convivialities. Domaines Vinsmoselle will also be offering a “hidden bar” to be found within the exhibition.

Throughout the event, industry professionals and the general public will be able to take part in a number of themed conferences with housing as the main theme. Numerous subjects will be discussed, including cohabitation, the future of housing, the place of nature in the city and others.

In parallel, DIY workshops will be organised and visitors will also be able to benefit from a personal shopper service or attend the recording and broadcasting of a live TV show.

Free entry, but registration required

In order to comply with sanitary measures, the event will take place under the CovidCheck regime. It will also be possible to get tested for free. Admission is free, but visitors must register online and reserve a time slot in advance.
