What is IBS?

The NAHB International Builders' Show® (IBS) is the largest annual light construction show in the world, welcoming tens of thousands of industry professionals annually from around the globe. As the premier, residential construction industry event, IBS will feature top industry suppliers and manufacturers showcasing the latest products, technologies and materials for all types of buildings—including wood, concrete, stone and brick.

In 2022, IBS will return to Orlando, Florida to offer attendees with opportunities to discover the hottest new trends and innovations available in new home construction and remodeling.
