IBSlogo-fulltag_black_SMOne more thing that sets RHBA member professionals apart from others in the industry.  Access to great education and information.  Registration opened September 1st  for the 2016 NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS), the largest annual light construction trade show in the world.

The 2016 show, to be held in Las Vegas Jan. 19-21, is part of the third annual Design & Construction Week™ (DCW), a co-location of IBS with the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show.

DCW 2016 will also include two partner events: The International Window Coverings Expo and The International Surface Event. While the shows remain separate, all IBS registrants have access to all event exhibit floors.

“Industry professionals from across the globe flock to IBS for its incredible offerings, and we expect the 2016 show to be yet another banner year,” said NAHB Chairman Tom Woods. “There is no other place where you can get this type of industry knowledge in one place. With an impressive show floor featuring the latest and greatest products, unmatched education sessions, exciting special events, networking opportunities and access to four show floors, this event is not one to be missed.”

More than 1,300 of the industry’s top manufacturers and suppliers covering 500,000 net square feet of exhibit space will pack the Show floor with the latest and most innovative products.

Attendees who purchase the full conference registration option — available for NAHB members at a good discount — also can attend more than 120 education sessions covering the latest techniques and trends in the building industry, as well as other exciting education features such as the new Innovation Hub covering the latest innovations in technology, building materials and more.

As always, all attendees can attend Exhibitor Floor Forums, offering product demos from several featured exhibitors, the High-Performance Building Zone, where building science experts lead a series of interactive sessions on sustainable and green technologies, and IBS Live! sessions featuring lively demos and presentations on a variety of topics.

Attendees also have their pick of numerous special events. Kicking off: acclaimed Tonight Show host and stand-up comedian Jay Leno, keynote speaker for the opening ceremonies. Another show favorite is the IBS Spike Concert presented by GEICO, where attendees will have the chance to hear a performance of greatest hits by the No. 1 selling duo in history, Hall & Oates.

Another of the many draws of IBS is The New American Home.® Now in its 33rd year, this official Show home showcases innovative construction technologies, emerging design trends and the latest building products. NAHB and Professional Builder magazine co-produce The New American Home. The showcase products are provided by members of the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council.

During September, IBS registrants can take advantage of several registration discounts. For a full list of offerings, visit BuildersShow.com/fees.
