Pros Provide How-To Demos Through IBSx

Events Icon
Demonstrations are one of the highlights at the International Builders' Show (IBS) each year. The new IBSx Virtual Experience on Feb. 9-12, 2021, will bring these demonstrations online with not one, but two exciting opportunities for attendees to learn more about various building practices.

High Performance Building Zone

The popular High Performance Building Zone returns with a number of online demonstrations, led by top builders, showcasing real building projects and featuring the latest innovative techniques for improving efficiency in all areas of the home. Segments will focus on key aspects of building performance, such as proper insulation and sealing techniques to maximize the energy efficiency of a home, air sealing and venting options to ensure a tight building envelope that works with other elements in the home, and indoor air quality upgrades and enhancements for new and existing homes. Want to keep up on the latest in high-performance building? Check out "New Products in High Performance Building: Part 1 and Part 2," which identify some of the most promising new products on the market, especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to meet new customer demands.

Home Tech Zone

The IBSx Virtual Experience will also feature a new Home Tech Zone. In addition to highlighting the industry's latest tech product innovations, these demos will highlight the importance of preparing the infrastructure and design of your projects to ensure tech adaptability. You'll learn how to develop a compatible home tech strategy, gain the installation expertise to select and work with the right contractors and integrators, and access the product insights to promote and sell to your clients. Key topic areas include home automation, smart home technology and healthy home technology, as well as security products both for the home and the jobsite. How-to videos will be broadcast at specific times during IBSx and will run approximately 15 to 30 minutes long. Videos will be available on demand until March 31, 2021, following the event. Stay tuned to for more details.
