After the success of its Turnover Fair held last year at the SMX Convention Centre in SM Aura Premier, SM Home takes the activity a notch higher by launching its very first SM Home Fair at a bigger venue in SMX Convention Centre Mall of Asia.
The three-day event scheduled this weekend (June 28 to 30) features around 60 brands and offers up to 60% discount on selected new and hard-to-find home accessories to shoppers.
The best part is this event is FREE and open to the public – so go ahead and shop to your hearts desire!
During the launch last Friday, SM Home AVP for Marketing Tom Castaneda said that the event will also feature a lot of different activities and talks facilitated by around 20 experts sharing hacks which includes celebrity chefs, interior designers and a certified KonMari consultant.
Joining Castaneda at the launch event are noted interior designer and editor Rachelle Medina and architect Arlene Maslog.
Medina suggests that shoppers go for the big ticket items and splurge on home items that they will be using most often like beds, mattresses, sofas, and basic appliances such as ref and gas range.
Your “save for later” items might include decors or other glam appliances.
Celebs Tessa Prieto-Valdes and the Kramers dropped by yesterday afternoon for a meet-and-greet inside the venue.
“SM Home has always been more than just a ubiquitous home store with unbeatable prices on a wide range of home items. We’ve always strived to have our customers think of SM Home as a partner in making their house a home,” shared Castaneda, “That’s why this year we decided to take the store on the road, so to speak, at the SMX Convention Center MOA, and offer three jam-packed days of activities to help more people make their houses, apartments or condos homes.”

For additional inspiration, SM Home turned the venue into an incredible show house for the entire weekend with creatively executed booth spaces, special pop-up vignettes and stylish photo booths.
“From the moment attendees reached the registration area for the SM Home Fair, we wanted to have design inspiration waiting for them,” explained Castaneda. “Along with our own special pop-up vignettes, we asked all participating brands to spruce up their booth spaces in stylish ways, as a way of inspiring people to say ‘Hey, I think I know how I can do something like that at home.’”
Participating brands includes:
