Convince Your Boss

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.

Use These Tools to Get Your Ticket to Orlando


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.


Download and complete the worksheet below to estimate your costs to attend the show.


If you are a new NAHB member or an existing member who has never registered for IBS as an NAHB member, you qualify for the First-Time Attendee Deal (FTAD). 



Last step! Now, copy/paste your answers and follow the instructions to replace the words in the brackets. Don’t forget to include THE GOODS and your expense total (from the Excel worksheet).
