MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Home Deco Expo International will feature HGTV star, designer and expert carpenter Ty Pennington as the headline speaker of its new furniture trade show which opens Feb. 29 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Open exclusively to industry professionals, Home Deco Expo brings suppliers from around the world, offering residential and commercial furniture, lighting and décor, rugs and flooring, and a diverse assortment of materials to create beautiful interior and exterior spaces.
Pennington will share with HDX attendees his unique stories and insights from the many interesting home improvement projects from his more than two decades of popular TV shows as well as his personal projects away from the camera. He also will be available to answer questions from attendees.
Pennington first garnered national attention as the quirky and creative carpenter on the groundbreaking home improvement series Trading Spaces. Later as host of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, he helped transform the lives of hundreds while inspiring millions more around the world to volunteer their time to help others. He’s hosted a series of other shows and traveled the country breathing new life into homes and communities, including several current series with HGTV that include Battle on the Beach, Rock the Block and Hometown Takeover, with other projects upcoming.
In addition to his extensive television work, Ty is recognized for his design expertise and style. He has launched fabric, furniture and flooring lines, and has written multiple books, including How Good Design Can Change Your Life, an intimate look at his design inspirations with décor advice and tips, and New York Times bestseller Ty’s Tricks, which is part reference and part behind-the-scenes in his own home, which he completely remodeled himself. His most recent book, Life to the Extreme, details his initial struggle with, and story on how he overcame, the challenges of living with ADHD.
