The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is pleased to announce that registration for the 2015 International Builders’ Show® (IBS) is now open! The largest annual light construction tradeshow in the world is being held in Las Vegas from Jan. 20 through 22, 2015 as part of the second annual Design & Construction Week.
Design & Construction Week also includes the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), which is hosted by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), and the International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE). New this year are two additional shows, The International Surface Event (TISE) and the Las Vegas Market. All of the shows will remain separate and distinct, but registrants will have access to the exhibits of all five shows during Design & Construction Week!
The IBS show floor will feature more than 1,000 of the industry’s best manufacturers and suppliers, who will all be showcasing the latest and innovative products. At the show, attendees will also be able to learn new techniques and explore emerging trends during more than 100 education sessions that will be offered throughout the show. In addition, there will be a variety of special events, speakers, awards, competitions and networking opportunities for attendees.
Another attendee favorite exhibit is The New American Home® (TNAH) 2015, a one-of-a-kind green home that is being built in a nearby community. Open to attendees to tour during IBS, this is a state-of-the-art home that 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, Deleware. “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.”
