More than 900 exhibitors will showcase their products and services across nearly 500,000 square feet of exhibit space at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), Feb. 8-10, 2022, in Orlando.
And, along with the co-located National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), the two shows bring more than 1,200 exhibiting manufacturers and over 870,000 net square feet of exhibit space together for the 8th annual Design & Construction Week (DCW).
The combined mega event — the largest annual gathering of the residential construction and design industry — features miles of exhibits, with new products, industry experts, and innumerable networking opportunities. From trucks to trusses, software to security systems, and everything in between, if it’s used in residential construction, you will find it here.
The energy around the 2020 show, held before the beginning of the pandemic, was palpable as attendees explored the latest products and trends, and the excitement for IBS 2022 is even greater, as many in the industry gather for the first time in two years.
In addition to the primary show floors in the OCCC’s West Concourse and South Concourse, you’ll find several specialty and niche exhibition areas at IBS, including the Professional Builder Show Village, where you can tour demonstration homes and experience interactive programming. And be sure to visit the outdoor IBS exhibits to get some time in the sun and see more great products and services.
