Marketplace Events Announces Partnership with HGTV Canada Host, Bryan Baeumler

Solon, Ohio – April 29, 2019 – Marketplace Events, the largest producer of business-to-consumer home shows in North America, announced today that the company has partnered with Canada’s top handyman Bryan Baeumler, best known as host of HGTV’s  Disaster DIY, Leave It To Bryan, House of Bryan, Bryan Inc. and Island of Bryan, to promote their 13 home shows across Canada.

His latest series Island of Bryan that premiered on April 7, 2019, has Baeumler and wife Sarah Baeumler renovating an abandoned rundown resort in paradise.

In the past 10 years, Baeumler Approved, which connects Canadian homeowners to local contractors and home service providers and is owned by Baeumler, has exhibited in more than 30 home shows across Canada.

“Partnering with Marketplace Events is a natural fit,” explained Baeumler. “These people are the best in the business, and they know shows. They bring in high quality consumers, create a fresh show year after year and work with exhibitors and partners to maximize our investment.”

"Bryan’s relatability and practical approach to renovating is what makes him loved by many Canadian homeowners," explained Tom Baugh, CEO of Marketplace Events. "He’s one of the most trusted names in the home improvement industry and perfectly represents the type of skilled tradespeople and experts you can find at our shows," he explained.

As part of the partnership, Baeumler will appear in the company’s advertising campaigns across Canada and make personal appearances at select shows each year. "We’ve got some exciting things planned," said Baugh. "Bryan’s quick wit and ability to easily connect with his audience will definitely be impactful and appeal to homeowners and renovation enthusiasts of all kinds."
