The National Association of Home Builders will soon welcome tens of thousands of remodelers and other industry professionals to Las Vegas for the 2024 International Builders’ Show (IBS) from Feb. 27-29 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
There is no other opportunity to find such a collection of expertise, products, and services, as well as networking and education, all in one place.
Attendees return home with exciting new ideas that pay off in today’s highly competitive market. Your clients want it all, especially at a time when home prices and interest rates are high and more homeowners choose to stay and remodel. The educational programs and innovative products you find at the Builders’ Show help you give your clients a great product.
With more than 1,300 exhibitors—and an incredible number of events and education sessions—the show offers plenty of great choices to maximize your time. There is so much content that it’s important to plan in advance to identify the offerings most important to you.
Remodeling Central and Symposium
A ”must” for any remodeler at the show is Remodeling Central. Remodeling Central is a dynamic place where like-minded professionals explore ideas and refine their skills. Amid the hustle and bustle of IBS, the central offers a welcoming place to take a break, grab refreshments, and network.
You’ll also find engaging education opportunities at Remodeling Central, with programs led by top industry professionals. Beyond training available at the central, the IBS Education program offers more than 100 sessions in nine different tracks. And be sure to check out the daily Game Changer sessions featuring nationally recognized thought leaders who can transform the way we think about and address critical industry issues.
New this year is a Remodeling Symposium taking place ahead of the show. It will feature industry experts sharing best practices and process improvements, including design, building techniques, sales and marketing, project management, and more.
For many, the product exhibitions are the top draw. This year, the show floor is separated into six categories, plus the Outdoor Exhibits. I recommend you make time to walk through the New Product Zone where the latest products and technologies make their debut. Be among the first to discover the next industry-changing innovation.
This is where it all comes together for today’s remodeler. If you’re looking to take your career or your company to the next level, then the 2024 International Builders’ Show is the event for new ideas and new techniques to unlock your full potential. I hope to see you there. You can register now at buildersshow.com
