"IBS is a staple event in the industry. Attending gets you out of your comfort zone and connects you with people that are facing the same challenges you face on a national level. At the show, together, you get viable solutions via education, products and networking opportunities you couldn't get anywhere else."

Adam Breen, Breen Homes

"I went into IBS really focused on figuring out how to delegate better so I could spend more time focused on growing the business. I learned so much about load setting at the show and how to gain control of our production schedules. I am presenting the concepts to my team of project managers so we can all be more effective and efficient in what we do."

Sherry Ferguson, Ferguson Builders 

"At IBS I saw so many people that really live and breathe the building industry. From the NAHB staff, to all the presenters and exhibitors, you could truly feel the energy and passion that everyone has for the show and the industry."
