NAHB, 2014 – The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) officially opened online registration today for the 2015 NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS), the largest annual light construction tradeshow in the world.
The 2015 show, to be held in Las Vegas, Jan. 20-22, is part of the second annual Design & Construction Week,™ a co-location with the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), hosted by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), and the International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE). New this year, two other shows will also join the event, including The International Surface Event (TISE) and the Las Vegas Market. While the shows will remain separate and distinct, all registrants will have access to the exhibits of all five shows held during Design & Construction Week.
The IBS show floor will feature more than 1,000 of the industry’s top manufacturers and suppliers showcasing the latest and most innovative products. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn new techniques and explore emerging trends in the more than 100 education sessions offered throughout the show. Additional special events, speakers, awards competitions and networking opportunities are among the other major highlights for attendees.
Another of the many draws of IBS is The New American Home® (TNAH) 2015, a one-of-a-kind green show home that is being built in a nearby neighborhood and will be open to attendees to tour during IBS. The state-of-the-art home incorporates builders’ best practices in energy efficiency, indoor-air quality, safety, convenience and aesthetics.
“Industry professionals representing nearly all facets of the housing industry both nationally and internationally flock to the International Builders’ Show because it is the industry event of the year,” said NAHB Chairman Kevin Kelly, a home builder and developer from Wilmington, Del. “With its expansive show floor, and unbeatable education and networking opportunities, plus the additional four shows available to attendees during Design & Construction Week, the 2015 show is not one to be missed.”
During September, IBS registrants can take advantage of several discounts and incentives, including:
• Free Expo Pass for all NAHB members or a $100 discount for NAHB members on early full conference registration, which includes access to 100+ education sessions in addition to the expo floors of all five shows.
