WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Hundreds of people came through the Convention Center this weekend for a Home Expo.

Organizers say about 100 vendors set up shop, displaying everything related to the home, from pools and Jacuzzis to grills, kitchen appliances and bedding.

The say it helps to bring business to local companies that have booths at the Expo and it helps out customers by providing a "one-stop-shop".

"It's good for the consumer because again they can come to one place and look at everything from kitchens to windows to bedding," said Dean Marks of American Consumer Shows. "It's great for the local businessmen  because it keeps them busy for the whole summer and into the fall until our next show."

Marks says after a show like this, some of the companies could walk away with half a million dollars in business for the next couple months.
