2008 International Builders' Show Registration Open
Registration is now open NAHB’s 2008 International Builders’ Show (IBS), the housing industry’s largest annual trade show and exhibition.
The show is expected to draw more than 100,000 housing professionals — including home and apartment builders, architects, products manufacturers and those involved in every aspect of residential and light commercial construction — to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Feb. 13-16.
The convention will feature more than 1,900 exhibitors spread across more than 1.5 million net square feet of space. They will showcase cutting-edge designs, technologies, products and services in more than 300 categories in home building and light commercial construction.
NAHB will offer nearly 300 education sessions at IBS on multiple topics including green building, tips for succeeding in a slower market, the 50+ housing market, construction codes and the top consumer home trends for 2008.
New to the 2008 show is “Executive Edge,” a day-long program for executives that will feature advice from speakers on leadership in challenging times.
“Now more than ever, housing professionals need to arm themselves with the latest information and resources that will help them weather this slower housing market,” said NAHB President Brian Catalde. “With its unmatched product showcase, impressive speakers and education sessions and unbeatable networking opportunities, this is a show that everyone in the housing industry will want to attend.”
Discounted online registration for IBS is available until Jan. 4. Attendees will be able to register onsite at the show beginning Feb. 10.
