Founded by Doug Hope with the Parksville Spring Home Show in 1986, Evergreen Exhibitions Ltd. is now British Columbia’s No.1 Consumer Show Producer with 18 annual events. We currently produce Home Shows across Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.
Our shows have become an integral part of local business communities, providing a place where attendees and exhibitors can connect. We always strive for the best possible exhibitor mix to provide the visiting public with the newest and best products in the industry. This, combined with informative seminars, in booth demonstrations and FREE admission at all events, has proven a recipe for success, as we have now produced over 500 shows.
Meet a few of the individuals who inspire us daily with their hard-working and creative approach to the home show business;
Darcy is the current mastermind behind Evergreen’s success. He is responsible for transforming a large, empty space into a Home Show and takes great pride in the details and finishing touches which make a show run smooth and successful.
Darcy grew up with the shows, so he is the problem solver, improvising when needed to ensure the show goes off without a hitch.
In the office, he is the go-to man for getting group lunches, and always has an interesting fact you didn’t know you needed to hear.

Glenda is our exhibitor extraordinaire. She is responsible for booking you into the best space she can find so you can have the best result possible.
As a former exhibitor, Glenda can work closely with you, sharing the best strategies and practices to ensure you stand out from the crowd and get the most from your time at the shows.
Glenda brings honesty, humour, warmth, fun and flair to the office and the shows. Her wealth of knowledge and experience in many backgrounds, including design and home decor make for countless, interesting conversations.
Always willing to help a friend or give her time to those in need, combined with her love of dogs (and all animals) speaks to her kind and compassionate nature which comes through in all she does.

Romeo was Darcy’s dog, and an integral part of the office team. He would greet you at the door and tell you he never gets treats, even if you just gave him one! He was everyone’s best friend, and often let himself out for a walk when he wanted. The rest of the time, you’d find him sleeping or sitting as close as possible to anyone willing to give him affection.
Romeo passed away in 2019 and his absence is felt daily.
Our display crew is the backbone of our onsite set-up and tear-down.
They are integral in getting the show ready-to-go by setting up draperies, tables and carpets to make the show look it’s best!
If you‘ve exhibited with us, then you likely interacted with them during move-in/move-out. Wether it’s helping unload your vehicle, loaning a tool, help lift a heavy object or even carry things to your booth; They are always eager to help and make exhibitors lives easier.
We are grateful for the hard work, fun and positive attitudes they bring to the shows.
Doug Hope was the Founder of Evergreen Exhibitions. He put on his first show in 1986, eventually producing 18 events each year and grew to be BC’s #1 Consumer Show Producer. Doug visited the office daily and shared his vast knowledge with his staff. He enjoyed his semi-retirement playing golf, hockey, and riding his motorcycles.
Doug passed away in 2018, and is deeply missed.
