Attendees from across the globe are expected to flock to Las Vegas for the 2023 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders’ Show® (IBS), the largest annual light construction trade show in the world, held Jan. 31-Feb. 2 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

IBS 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). Registrants will also be able to attend the National Hardware Show (NHS) which will also be at the Las Vegas Convention Center at that time. Registration for IBS will also allow attendees access to the show floors of KBIS and NHS.

“We are seeing huge interest and registration numbers for the 2023 IBS and expect this to be a banner year,” said NAHB Chairman Jerry Konter, a home builder and developer from Savannah, Ga. “Attendees will get the full experience of networking, education, new products and much more. Being able to visit all three industry shows at one time, with one registration, is an incredible value and an experience not to be missed.”

Registration for the three shows is currently underway in what is expected to be the largest annual gathering of the residential design and construction industry in the world. Projections for the shows are pacing ahead of previous years and are looking very strong for 2023. 

  • IBS is projecting to host more than 1,000 exhibitors spanning over 575,000 net square feet of exhibit floor space. NAHB expects more than 57,000 to attend the 2023 show.
  • NKBA|KBIS is projecting to host over 450 exhibitors across 420,000 net square feet of exhibits space and expects over 30,000 attendees.
  • NHS has more than 6,000 attendees registered to date, 31% of whom who are new registrants and 17% with over $5 million in purchasing power. The show also has 600+ exhibitors, more than half of whom are new to the show.
