This year’s Home Staging Forum was an outstanding success for the second year running. The 2019 event was held on the 16th November 2019 at the magnificent Waldorf Hilton Hotel in London, UK.

Led by HSA Founder Paloma Harrington-Griffin, the event saw over 100 participants from the home staging community across Europe visiting to show their support, network, and be in with the chance of winning a prestigious Home Staging Association UK & Ireland award.

During the event, we were joined by guest speakers Hayley Smith, Duncan Gunn, Alex Willcocks, Teresa Ling, Anita Richardson, James Turner, Peter Bauman and Natalie Evans who shared their advice on topics surrounding what they look for in a stager, marketing, and photography as a sales tool. There was also an opportunity to network with fellow home stagers and watch presentations.

This year was also a very exciting one, as it was the first year of The Home Staging Awards. This is where home staging professionals and companies had the opportunity to nominate themselves for a series of awards prior to the event, judged by a line up of industry experts handpicked by the HSA UK & Ireland:
