The Rio Rancho Home Improvement Marketplace Show is working with the city of Rio Rancho and the Rio Rancho Events Center to bring the event to the RREC Sept. 9-10.

The Rio Rancho Homeshow will feature experts in home improvement and home business technology experts. The event sponsor, Mark’s Plumbing and Heating, will be providing one event attendee a “Home Energy Efficiency Upgrade,” valued at over $8,000.

The goal of the event is to bring new home innovations to the public.

“Working with the events center, we’ve been able to save some great booth space at terrific reduced prices for  local businesses,” said David Griffin, owner of High Desert Communications.

Griffin and John Pravato have partnered to produce more than 30 home show events.

“We’d like to thank the city of Rio Rancho and the surrounding communities for supporting this event,” Pravato said. “We’re committed to holding down attendance ticket prices and exhibitor booth costs. Attendees pay only $5 for adults; children 14 and under are free, along with parking.”

The home show will also give away a pair of tickets each day to Ringo Starr and his All-star band, which will be performing at the RREC on Sept. 20.
