Know The Show: The International Builders Show
Today, technology is accelerating the pace of change in the residential construction business exponentially, just as it has in many other industries. It’s changing the way we build homes and run our businesses. As the largest global consumer of raw materials, the construction industry also has a unique responsibility for educating consumers on new products and services that can reduce resource consumption and improve lifestyle.
The importance of targeted education today for industry professionals cannot be overstated. As an industry, we’ve proactively developed multiple avenues through which to educate each other about new products and services for builders and consumers.
International Builders Show 2021
What Is The International Builders Show?
One place for companies to showcase and demonstrate new products is at industry-specific trade shows. Each year, the International Builders' Show (IBS) is organized by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). It is the only event of its kind that focuses specifically on the need, concerns and opportunities faced by residential builders. The NAHB International Builders Show is a hub for new product launches, construction demos, industry thought leader sessions, workshops, panel discussions and more. It offers an unparalleled opportunity for professionals to gather together and exchange concerns, solutions and ideas specific to the homebuilding industry. However, like many events around the world, IBS 2021 has been transformed into an all-virtual event, IBSx, due to health and safety concerns and ongoing travel restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
When Is The International Builders Show?
Originally planned as part of the annual Design & Construction Week (DCW) scheduled to take place in Orlando, FL, the all-virtual DCW 2021 and IBSx are taking place online from February 9-12.
What We Love About IBS
We at Hyphen Solutions have been enthusiastic supporters of IBS and its mission of education and networking. We first exhibited here in 2000 — that’s 21 years ago! Time flies — and we’ve expanded our presence throughout the years with new, exciting product announcements, events and promotions. To us, there is nothing more special than being able to connect with other industry professionals in this way. Not only have we been able to educate and share our new products, but we have received valuable input and ideas from the people most important to us — our current and prospective users — that have enabled us to continually improve the design of the products we offer.
What Hyphen Solutions Has Been Working On This Year
Although Hyphen has chosen not to attend virtually, we are with IBSx in spirit and will be returning as soon as we can all gather together again in person. We remain committed to sharing the exciting things we’ve been doing with all of you. During the past year, we’ve been learning more and more about what our residential construction clients need, especially in challenging times, and designing solutions to keeping your business running smoothly and efficiently in all business climates. We want to make sure you have everything you need to help your business thrive.
