I am so excited that NAHB will soon welcome tens of thousands of home builders, remodelers, and other housing industry professionals to Orlando for the 2022 NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS). The in-person show takes place Feb. 8-10 at the Orange County Convention Center.

Simply put, there is no place on this planet where a home builder can find a more impressive assembly of products, services, expertise, and educational and networking opportunities. If you are looking for new ideas to boost your business, this is the place to find them.

Following the unprecedented circumstances brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a great pent-up demand for builders to come together and interact in person. Orlando is the place to see and be seen if you’re a housing professional because IBS is by far the most important event for our industry. Industry pros will be coming to Orlando in large numbers to gear up for a strong year in new home building. The show is a welcome opportunity to celebrate our industry.

In Orlando, attendees will be able to see the vast array of products and services available to the residential construction industry. Showcasing cutting-edge technology and products that look better, last longer, use less energy, and promote a greener future, we are showing off the best products in the history of housing. IBS is the best place in the world to see the progress and innovation that is being made in residential construction.

Those who attend IBS never fail to come away with fresh ideas that pay off fast in today’s competitive marketplace. Customers these days want it all, and the exhibitors and educational programs at the 2022 show can help you give them a solid product, including the latest trends they want, at a price they can afford.

This special IBS planner provides an overview of the networking and event highlights, outstanding exhibits and education sessions, top-notch guest speakers, and much more.

I look forward to seeing you in Orlando as we move forward with confidence, steadfast in our resolve to seize the day for housing.
