Each year during the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS), a panel of independent judges comprising attending reporters and building industry professionals looks at the products, programs and services on display in the exhibit hall.
Their mission is to determine the Best of IBS: which products represent the most innovative offerings among nine categories — and to decide which product will be honored as the Best of Show. The 2019 Best of IBS Awards received more than 300 award entries.The awards were presented during the Best of IBS Awards ceremony on the final day of the show.
