Builders, manufacturers and suppliers of the systems-built industry can learn about industry design trends, energy code compliance, copyright law and how to operate and market more effectively during the 2011 SHOWCASE on Oct. 23-25 in Baltimore. And if they register by Sept. 9, they can save $100 off onsite registration.
Held at the Hilton Baltimore, SHOWCASE, presented by NAHB’s Building Systems Councils (BSC), also will feature education and networking opportunities, an exhibitors’ hall and a tour of panelized home producer Shelter Systems’s 120,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art lean manufacturing facility — which maximizes efficiency, utilizes cubic space, reduces labor requirements, and improves customer responsiveness through quicker cycle times.
Tour attendees also will learn how they can incorporate lean manufacturing best-practices into their business models.
Industry Outlook, Leadership Roundtable Discussion
In addition, NAHB Chief Economist David Crowe will provide short- and long-term insights on the industry during an open-forum, question-and-answer session that can help attendees make crucial business decisions.
SHOWCASE also will feature an executive roundtable discussion on business strategies related to marketing, inventory, sustainability and other topics critical to the systems-built industry.
