Delegations of home builders and city planners from across the globe count on NAHB for providing cutting-edge building science and land use. There is no question that NAHB’s training products, and those of the broader Federation family and HBI, are of great value. In addition, many builders in developing countries are seeking business opportunities with a variety of industry partners and suppliers. The Global Opportunities Board helps ensure that these opportunities can take place. NAHB created the Global Opportunities Board to make it easier for our members to do business in a world that’s getting smaller every year.
As opportunities to work with overseas governments and firms increase, it’s even more important to provide a robust international program that includes education and information about these new ventures and partnerships. At the same time, NAHB wants to encourage more home builders, developers and product manufacturers from all countries to attend and exhibit at the annual International Builders’ Show.
The Global Opportunities Board is designed to grow international membership, facilitate industry networking, improve business opportunities, and provide high quality education to industry participants. These initiatives will put NAHB and its members on the path to global success.
The Global Opportunities Board is positioned to:
- Be the premier global clearinghouse for information on all aspect of the home building industry;
- Reinforce the value and global business opportunities created through NAHB membership;
- Grow the International Builders’ Show as a multi-national networking and business development event;
- Help ensure NAHB’s international programs stimulate economic growth for the association and its members.
