After a brainstorming session by the exhibition's new owners, Media 10, it was decided that the show needed to provide visitors with the wow factor immediately after they left the tube station and headed to the venue.
As a result Media 10 will be bringing in the talents of Southgate Designs to cover the building's frontage and walkway in grass (see main picture).
Southgate Designs is the company that produces all of the designs for Grand Design Live, another show organised by Media 10.
Under new ownership the Ideal Home Show is set to launch a number of feature areas and celebrity speakers that include Monty Don and Fiona Phillips.
