New year, new ways to explore, learn and network! Join the anticipated 60,000 attendees at the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS), slated for January 9-11, 2018, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
The top 1,400 manufacturers and suppliers from around the globe will be on hand to share their expertise and insights about the latest in-demand light construction products and services — many of which are also showcased in the two official IBS show homes open for tours: The New American Home® and The New American Remodel™.
But interactive exhibits are only the beginning. Register for the IBS today to ensure you’re there to participate in these show-exclusive opportunities:
1. Hands-on Builder Clinics
Today’s buyers demand character and functionality inside and outside their homes. Learn the techniques, tips and tricks for creating incredible custom features and finishes that exceed customer expectations without blowing budgets and timelines. The full schedule of hands-on IBS Builder Clinics is split into three areas over the course of the show: kitchens & bathrooms, outdoor living, and living space & storage maximization.
