Why IBS?


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.

The NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) is the premier gathering place for everyone in the residential construction industry. And just like its builders, remodelers, suppliers, manufacturers, engineers and designers, it’s essential. It’s the most anticipated event of the year, every year, because it’s crucial to getting business done

You’ll get to experience the industry as a whole—its latest tech, new product launches, trends and the hottest topics—but it’s also your best opportunity to learn what’s needed to thrive in 2021, and beyond.
