2021 BUILDERS’ SHOW UPDATE

Due to health and safety concerns and ongoing travel restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) will be transitioning the 2021 International Builders’ Show® to a robust all-virtual event the week of February 8. See our announcement for the latest details and updates.

You already know that attending the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) is vital to thriving in your career in residential construction. You also know that telling your boss why you MUST attend is imperative to securing the funding and time away you need to experience everything at this essential industry event.

STEP 1 

Right now, think of at least one thing (could be more) that you’re trying to get done, get better at, or learn for your job. We’re going to call these THE GOODS. Check out this page for quick inspiration and write yours down.

Here are a few examples:

  • I want to see what’s new when it comes to window products that can save my clients’ money on their energy bill.
  • We’re reducing in-person appointments and I want to learn how to implement virtual reality to showcase our homes to potential customers.
  • I want to network/meet more people in the industry to learn tips to improve my business.

STEP 2
