The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) officially opened online registration today for the 2023 NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS), the largest annual light construction trade show in the world.
IBS will take place in person at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Jan. 31-Feb. 2, where it will again co-locate with the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s (NKBA) Kitchen & Bath Industry Show® (KBIS) for the 10th Annual Design & Construction Week® (DCW). The two shows are expected to host more than 1,300 exhibiting brands spanning over 985,000 net square feet of exhibit space, for the largest annual gathering of the residential design and construction industry in the world.
Furthering this year’s offerings, in addition to IBS and KBIS, registrants can now attend a third industry show at the same place and time with just one badge. Registration for IBS will also allow you access to the show floor of the National Hardware Show (NHS).
“There is a reason IBS is considered the essential industry experience for anyone involved in residential construction,” said NAHB Chairman Jerry Konter, a home builder and developer from Savannah, Ga. “Being able see all of the latest products, learn from experts on a range of educational topics and network with peers from across the globe all in one place, makes it an event not to be missed. And to have the added opportunity of being able to explore the exhibits of two other industry shows is an especially great value.”
An Expo+Education Pass gives attendees 3-day access to all IBS Education sessions. This includes a choice of 100+ sessions led by renowned experts on a wide range of industry topics, as well as daily keynotes and sessions led by high-profile speakers on industry trends. And for those looking to make the most of their show experience, there are several pre-show learning opportunities available on January 29-30, for additional fees. As part of the pre-show offerings, NAHB Education will host one-day courses that delve deep into industry topics, all while earning NAHB continuing education credits. A new addition to this year’s show, the Pro Builder and Pro Remodeler’s U40 Leadership Summit is a one day educational and networking event for young housing industry leaders. And for a deeper dive into specific industry topics, attendees can participate in Pre-Show Master Workshops, in-depth, 3-hour intensive programs held the day before the show officially kicks off.
The IBS show floor is always buzzing with innovative products and dynamic demonstrations. IBS attendees will have the opportunity to experience exciting show floor destinations including the Start-up Zone, featuring a glimpse of products or services that are predicted to shake up the residential construction industry, and the Home Technology Solutions Pavilion, showcasing what’s next in emerging construction technology. IBS attendee favorites like the Building Zone, nextBUILD and the Jobsite Safety Zone will also return in 2023. In addition to the indoor show floor exhibits, attendees always enjoy the impressive outdoor exhibits including the Pro Builder Show Village.
Numerous networking opportunities, social gatherings, interesting speakers and special events are also among the show’s many draws. The 2023 show will kick off on the morning of Jan. 31 at the DCW Opening Ceremonies featuring a moderated Q&A with the country’s leading advocate for skilled trades, Mike Rowe. That evening registrants can attend the Official IBS House Party at Drai’s Beachclub & Nightclub. Other events throughout the week include the Young Pro Party Wednesday night, followed by the DCW Closing Concert immediately after the show floor closes on Thursday night.
Attendees can also tour NAHB’s official IBS show home, The New American Home® (TNAH). The home is a short bus ride from the Convention Center and is designed to showcase innovative building technologies, emerging design trends and the latest building products.
