Tony Wood, producer of Texwood Shows, is very familiar with professionally run Home and Garden Shows, originating as a salesman working with his father in 1988 at the George R. Brown Convention Center and now producing high quality home and garden shows in Sugar Land, Cy-Fair, and The Woodlands annually. After hosting The Woodlands Home and Garden Show at the Waterway Marriott for the last 16 years in both the Fall and Spring, he is looking forward to the show March 2-3 at the Lone Star Convention Center in Conroe.
“I’ve been in the marketing industry all my life with a major in Broadcasting/Advertising from Missouri State University. After college I worked in advertising selling radio, cable TV, and other promotional opportunities”, said Tony Wood.
Fast forward to 2019 and the upward surge of Home and Garden Shows and reality TV Shows that highlight home improvement ideas, with Fixer Upper and the Boise Boys.
“The internet has changed the delivery of media to make it more accessible to view home products, but homeowners are finding they can’t do everything online…and they don’t want to make a large home improvement decision without meeting the contractor face to face. Nothing beats talking to professional contractors for big projects in person. The Home and Garden Show allows exhibitors to “strut their stuff” at their booth and show the public what is beyond their website”.
The Montgomery County Home and Garden Show features HGTV’s Boise Boys, Clint Robertson and Luke Caldwell to the speaker line-up on Saturday, March 2, 2019. Clint Robertson and Luke Caldwell, best friends and home renovation experts, do beautiful home transformations in HGTV’s series Boise Boys. The duo says they are an unlikely pairing of two very different people—Luke, a designer, is a “stylistic visionary” and Clint is a “getter-done” licensed contractor.
After Boise Boys delivered solid ratings in its first season, HGTV ordered an additional 13 one-hour episodes premiering in April 2019. Great timing for the community to see the Timber and Love renovation experts and discover what brought them together to restore homes as a team.
With over 200 exhibitors sharing new home improvement products and services from landscaping, roofing, outdoor remodeling, pools, attics, painters, flooring, decorators, remodeling kitchens, bathrooms, bathtubs, skylights, pest/mosquito control, kitchen accessories, hot tubs, windows/window treatments, and even garages, attendees will be buzzing with fresh ideas for their homes.
Featured exhibitors and speakers include Primo Hot Tubs and Swim Spas, and ABM Cabinets, both professional local businesses in the home improvement industry in Montgomery County. Primo Hot tubs and Swim Spas will offer buy direct incentives up to 50% off for participants that purchase a new therapeutic hot tub or swim spa during the show. Visit the custom Luxury Kitchen at the show by ABM Cabinets. Enjoy having a luxurious kitchen or bathroom with true custom-made cabinets by Wellborn and RD Henry, Cambria quartz countertops, or enhance your backyard with a new extended porch area featuring a beautiful outdoor kitchen.
Each of the Texwood Shows partners with a local non-profit to give back to the community and allow exposure for their mission at the show. The Montgomery County Home and Garden Show features Community Assistance Center, formerly Crisis Assistance Center serving all of Montgomery County with a hand up to individuals and families experiencing financial crisis with basic needs-housing, food, clothing, and utilities. Through collaborations in the community and faith partners they are able to assist the individuals to attain financial independence by delivering sustainable solutions.
“The change to “Community Assistance Center” (CAC)is more reflective of who we serve in the community and our vision to strengthen Montgomery County one neighbor at a time,” said Executive Director Jennifer Landers. “CAC is excited to be the charity partner for the inaugural Montgomery County Home and Garden show. The show provides a great way for us to get exposure in a fun environment, as we assist our neighbors in need to keep them moving forward with housing, and basic needs to be self-sustainable”.

We have very few complaints over the years from exhibitors or homeowners. It is rewarding to know that our shows maintain integrity with high caliber professionals in the home improvement industry.
