Modular Industry Leaders to Share Concerns at SHOWCASE
The two leading trade associations representing the modular home industry — NAHB’s Building Systems Councils (BSC) and the Pennsylvania-based Modular Building Systems Association (MBSA) — will meet in open forum during the BSC’s 25th annual SHOWCASE conference and trade show this fall to identify industry issues and strategize solutions.
Online registration is now available for SHOWCASE, which will be help on Oct. 25-28 at the Marco Island Marriott in Marco Island, Fla.
“Inviting the MBSA members is a tremendous step in advancing the interests of the systems-built industry,” said Michael H. Weber, the 2009 BSC chairman. “Getting industry leaders together to strategize best practices and position the industry for success is beneficial to builders and buyers in the housing market.”
“We are excited to participate in the SHOWCASE,” said Chad C. Harvey, MBSA executive director. “We share many members with the BSC, which means that we also share similar concerns on many issues. By coming together in this forum, we have provided a tremendous opportunity for the entire industry to meet and work together.”
The BSC’s strength is in promoting modular homes as a housing solution for builders and buyers across the country while the MBSA specializes in advancing the regulatory and legislative interests of the modular industry at the state and local level. The associations have worked together for years addressing issues concerning the modular industry.
SHOWCASE, a conference for manufacturers, suppliers and builders of concrete, log, modular and panelized building systems, offers networking opportunities, education sessions and exhibitors showcasing the latest in building systems products and services. Education sessions this year will cover green building, energy codes, economic updates, sales and marketing strategies and more.
