More than 67,000 home building professionals from around the world filled the exhibit halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center as NAHB hosted the 75th anniversary of the International Builders’ Show (IBS) Feb. 19-21, 2019. Read a full recap of the 2019 IBS.

NAHB Global members from 29 countries visited International Central during the 2019 IBS, learning about design trends, technology, building systems and doing business in a variety of countries. They also networked at an exclusive international buyer reception and took advantage of the Central’s translation and business tools.

On Feb. 20, Global Industry Day, NAHB awarded four companies with the annual Global Innovation Award (GIA) and two companies as GIA finalists. See a photo gallery of the GIA Awards Ceremony.

Connecting in person to discuss business with home building professionals from around the world is a valuable opportunity that more and more people take advantage of each year.
