Share your knowledge, experience and expertise at the 2023 NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS), Jan. 31- Feb. 2 in Las Vegas, by submitting an education proposal for the Building Knowledge sessions and pre-show Master Workshops.

Reasons to consider becoming a speaker include: 

  1. Elevate your status as a thought leader. “IBS is the largest platform to share information with other professionals in our industry,” noted a past speaker. “The audience is always engaged and eager to learn. It’s the one event that’s always on my calendar.” 
  2. Energize your business by attracting an audience at the premier show in the light construction industry. “The IBS is the best conference you can attend. I do many builder conferences, and this is the absolute best – gold standard conference,” shared another past speaker.   
  3. Get in front of industry professionals attending the largest show of its kind.“NAHB is the one conference I look forward to attending and speaking at each year,” another speaker stated. “The opportunities to learn from industry leaders across the county are endless, and the NAHB Staff makes preparing for your speaking sessions very easy and efficient.”
  4. Speaker slots are highly competitive. “Speaking at IBS is a unique and special privilege!” exclaimed a past IBS speaker. “Few, if any, other venues offer such an opportunity to connect with peers and clients, while meeting and connecting with many new friends and colleagues.”
