“We are very pleased to partner with the Master Builders and the Seattle Home Show,” said Mei-Mei Chan, Vice President of Advertising for The Seattle Times. “The Seattle Home Show is a very successful, well-run operation, and we’re pleased to add to its success with the power of our print and online media network.”

The Master Builders Association and its member exhibitors will benefit from this new partnership and welcomes The Seattle Times as a co-presenting sponsor. “Our association and our members are excited for this new chapter of Seattle Home Show history to begin. We welcome The Seattle Times as co-presenting sponsor,” said Sam Anderson, Executive Officer.

“We have long served the advertising needs of many of the show exhibitors by helping them reach the highest quality prospects in the marketplace,” said Chan. “The partnership with the Seattle Home Show is a way to further support their success, as well as to help home owners find solutions to their home-improvement needs.”
