Home & Garden Show first event held at newly-renovated Caloosa Sound Convention Center – NBC2 News

FORT MYERS, Fla. – As part of the construction of the Luminary Hotel that opens to the public this week, the Caloosa Sound Convention Center was given a face-lift.

The first event to test it out was this weekend’s Home and Garden Show.

In 1991, the Home and Garden Show was the first event to be held in the space formally known as the Harbor Side Event Center.

On Saturday and Sunday, both vendors and visitors admired the newly-renovated space at its first event.

Organizers made sure everyone was following CDC guidelines.

“Because of COVID, we’ve social distanced our exhibitors, we’ve kept them away from one another,” said David Pardi, Florida Show Manager. “Instead of selling out the room, we’ve done about 75 percent of the booths we’ve sold. We’re keeping everyone away from one another- 10-foot isles.”

The Home and Garden Show says they’ll be back in Fort Myers in January 2021.
