Build Your Knowledge at the Custom Builder Symposium
The Custom Builder Symposium will be held at the Lake Las Vegas Resort in Nevada on Oct. 27-29.
Custom home clients continually raise the bar on what they expect from builders. The 2006 Custom Builder Symposium, NAHB’s premier event for custom builders, gives custom builders the opportunity to expand their knowledge base, deliver on their clients’ expectations and ensure profitability.
The symposium will be held Oct. 27-29 in the Lake Las Vegas Resort, Nev. and registration is now open.
Featuring world-class education, plenty of networking opportunities and a practical take-home workbook packed with tips on marketing, management and customer service, the Custom Builder Symposium is a can't-miss opportunity for custom builders to learn from peers who build high-end homes for demanding customers.
"It will not teach you how to pour concrete any better than you already do or teach you how to plumb cut a rafter, but it will teach you how to put money to your bottom line," said past symposium attendee and NAHB Custom Home Builder Committee Chair Dave Stormont, of Stormont Co., Inc. in Kitty Hawk, N.C.
