About Inspired Expos
Inspired Expos was started in 2005. We produce two home expo events a year in San Luis Obispo, two per year in Paso Robles, two per year in Monterey and a health expo each year also in San Luis Obispo.
The vision behind the home expos is to create a location for local residents to meet face to face with local companies who can help them to create a beautiful living environment and increase the value of their homes. The health expo provides a location for residents to meet face to face with a variety of health, wellness, and fitness providers in the area.
Join us at an expo to
- Meet local experts
- Choose someone you trust
- Bring your inspirations to life!
