What does ideal-LIVING do with my information?

  • The information you provide to ideal-LIVING will not be sold or shared with any outside sources.

We will also put you on the mailing list to receive our next issue of ideal-LIVING magazine.

What are the directions to the show venue?

  • For the best directions you may call the hotel that the show is being held at and the front desk can give you the most current travel directions.

What if there is bad weather?

  • The show will go on. If you are able to travel to the show venue safely, we encourage you to attend the show as we will not be back in your area until the following year.

Can I bring my animal?

  • Animals are cute but not allowed at the show. We may have other attendees who are allergic, and we want everyone to have a great experience. Service animals are exempt but must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices.

What about parking?

  • The hotels offer free parking.

What if a state I am interested in is not represented at the show?

  • We encourage you to still attend as there are many options to consider and we may have something that fits you perfectly that you may not have previously considered.

Is it the same show on both days? Will there be the same communities there?
