IBS Education is known for fresh content on timely topics, from trends and technologies to business-building ideas, insights and outlooks. While favorites such as the Super Sales Rally will be back, more than 70% of the content for 2022 is new. Attending IBS gives you a tremendous opportunity to gain critical industry knowledge that your peers who choose to stay home will miss. IBS is a place to get a leg up in the industry. You need an All-Access Pass to participate in many of the education opportunities at the show. The Builders’ Show offers several types of education sessions.

Spotlight Sessions

There will be seven Spotlight Sessions held across the three days of the show. These are our most anticipated programs, featuring high-profile speakers and the latest industry trends and most pressing topics.

Building Knowledge Sessions

To get the most out of your experience and to balance your time between the awesome education opportunities, the show floor and networking sessions, the Building Knowledge Sessions are divided into nine industry niche-specific tracks. These tracks will help you plan your schedule according to your specific interests.

Each of the Building Knowledge Sessions run about 60 minutes, the perfect amount of time to learn a new skill or tip for your business, and still pack your day full of IBS activities. With more than 85 Building Knowledge Sessions to choose from, you’ll find tons of veteran and new speakers eager to share their knowledge with you.

Game Changers

These sessions are presented by experts from within and outside of the industry. Past speakers have included experts from Harley Davidson, Taylor Morrison, Chick-fil-A and The New Home Company.

These sessions differ from the rest of IBS education in that they are taught by those with a different perspective – business leaders and influencers in other industries who have seen significant success. Attend the Game Changers sessions to take the lessons from others and apply them to your own success. IBS will feature one Game Changer session on each day of the show.
