B.Y.O.D. – Bring Your Own Dreams
At Suburban Indy Shows we invite you to B.Y.O.D. – Bring Your Own Dreams!
We understand there are thousands of ideas for home improvement only a click away. Whether its Pintrest, HGTV, Houzz or simple Google search… ideas are endless and easy to find right from your own couch!
So you’ve found that idea… that dream… now what? If your an expert handyman, craftsman, etc. Then get to work! But if you have a history of more Pintrest Fails than Pintrest Wins… you might need to hire some help.
You could stay on the couch, search business websites, scour BBB reviews and ask Facebook friends for recommendations… and maybe that works for you. But maybe, maybe your the type of person that likes to look someone in the eye before you commit hundreds or thousands of dollars on a project to them. Maybe you want to have a conversation and ask questions. Maybe you want to feel comfortable with the person doing the job and not simply how their website portrays their business. That’s where we come in!
We have invited some of the top Suburban Indy Home & Outdoor Living experts to Grand Park for our show… to meet with you!
Your time is valuable! You don’t need to drive all around town, set up appointments, coordinate schedules, etc. Just come to our show, take a leisurely stroll through our no hassle isles and find the local expert who can help your dreams become reality!
Design Open House
Our primary show feature area welcomes you to browse through the creations of some of the top Suburban Indy area designers for your home’s interior and exterior!
We have asked them to showcase their talents for you by designing rooms, outdoor living spaces, gardens, etc. for you to browse through, get ideas from and be inspired!
This is an area for shoppers! Shoppers who love to support local businesses!
We’ll have exhibitors from Suburban Indy showcasing cash and carry style products that you’ll love! Here’s a list of retail products our neighbors can expect to find at the show!
Recycled/upcycled products, honey and syrup based deliciousness, homemade bath and body products, candles, aprons, towels, kitchen gadgets, artisan chocolate, hand painted items, stained glass, hand made furniture and other wood products, Hoosier-based merchandise, fall fashion, living walls, living fences, moss walls, spices, sauces, dips, fall nursery plants and decor, storage solutions, wine and more!

It’s an amazing feeling to get to pick you who do business with! That feeling goes two ways…
You get to browse many experts at our shows and select who you feel most comfortable with handling your next project!
We have a clean slate in selecting only the best exhibitors! We have learned from showgoers in our 17+ years of show production experience! We know which exhibitors people want to see and which ones they avoid eye contact with as they sprint by their booth! Those aggressive, pushy exhibitors are not welcome at Suburban Indy Shows! Sure, with over 200 exhibits its very unlikely you’re going to be interested in every one… but our goal is to allow you to relax as you walk the aisles and quite simply, enjoy the show!

A week or so before the show opens, we’ll release our show map to help you plan your visit, scout your route, find your path to happiness!
Or just be like your dad and say “to heck with directions” and wander through our neighborhood!
