HGTV Home Improvement Expert to Star at Closets Expo

SCHAUMBURG, IL – Pat Simpson, CedarSafe home improvement expert and host of HGTV’s “Before & After” and “Fit-It-Up,” will appear at the fifth annual Closets & Home Organization Conference & Expo™, March 18-20, at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center.

Simpson will participate in the presentation of the 3rd annual Top Shelf Design awards and conduct a pair of product installation demonstrations at the Closets Expo.

Simpson’s multiple roles at the Closets Conference & Expo, featuring the Custom Woodworking Conference, are made possible by Giles & Kendall, manufacturer of CedarSafe closet liners.

Simpson will serve as master of ceremonies of the Top Shelf Design awards, an awards program that honors designers for outstanding closet and garage projects. The awards program, scheduled for 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, leads into the Closets Industry Networking Reception.

The first of Simpson’s two free closet product installation demonstrations, focusing on a “High-End Closets Project,” is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Thursday, March 19. Simpson will show how easy and cost-effective it is to dress up a closet with cedar planks.

Simpson’s second presentation, “Maximizing Under-Used Storage Space,” will demonstrate how adding a cedar closet to any home renovation or closet redo is an easy way to add a finished look to a project or enlarge useful quality storage space in other areas, including attics and under stairs.
