Former President George Bush will be the keynote speaker at “The Magic of America” grand opening ceremonies at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 19, in the Orleans Hotel Arena. The President who signed into law the Americans With Disabilities Act and the Clean Air Act, successfully negotiated the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and served during a period of major global realignments will share his thoughts on the American economy and the world at large and the critical contributions home builders make to the quality of life in our nation.
Former Michigan Congressman Guy Vander Jagt will also appear during the opening ceremonies as the emcee for an entertainment extravaganza produced by NAHB.
Jeffrey R. Immelt, chairman of the board and CEO of General Electric Company, will open the tecHOMExpo in the Convention Center at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 20, with a keynote address on the state of technology and its likely evolution over the next few years, and how builders can best take advantage of these developments.
