What It's About
Join us for the premiere design educational experience of IBS 2024—the Blueprint! Combining perennial IBS favorites, 60 Design Ideas in 60 Minutes and the Design Battle Royale, we've created a super-sized morning of design inspiration that will leave you with a roadmap for incorporating the best features with the most impact into your homes and communities. We'll open with a "battle" for design supremacy as two architects take on three wholistic designs for three unique buyer segments and try to convince you that their approach is best for curb appeal, outdoor living, memory points and more. With live voting after each round, you'll get to decide who walks away as the 2024 Design Battle Royale Champ! After all the debate is done, it's time to buckle your seat belts for 60 in 60. In this rapid-fire presentation, six industry-leading architects, interior designers, developers and builders share 10 of their most cutting-edge ideas and strategies to update your elevations, renew floor plans, animate streetscapes, enhance amenities, develop dynamic neighborhoods and more. The 2024 Blueprint is a must-see—you won’t find more design per square foot anywhere else at the Show!
