The health and safety of our community remains our top priority as we prepare for the in-person 2021 International Builders’ Show (IBS), February 9-11. As the trade show industry continues to evolve in response to the rapid changes of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, our team is working closely with Orlando authorities to create a safe environment for all attendees. We are monitoring the situation daily and in consultation with health experts. The 2021 Builders’ Show will apply guidelines and standards set-forth by the CDC and federal, state and local government agencies. We will work to implement important health and safety protocols and ensure industry best practices in and around IBS are followed.
We will continue to update the following COVID-19 related resources to keep you informed on our plans for the show.
