The industry’s largest conference, Design and Construction Week, will move online next year. Both the International Builders’ Show (IBS) and the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) were originally slated for February 9 through 11 in Orlando, Fl. Both shows will take place the same week, but will be entirely virtual due to health and safety concerns, according to NAHB. Registration for both NAHB and NKBA members is free. The decision came after lengthy talks, says NAHB, but both NAHB’s chairman and NKBA’s CEO ensure this year will be dynamic and exceptional.

“Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of our exhibitors, attendees and the thousands of onsite workers who support the premier event of the residential construction industry, we feel the only prudent course is to make this year’s show a virtual event,” said NAHB Chairman Chuck Fowke, a custom home builder from Tampa, Fla. “We have plenty of great virtual educational programs, innovative products, services and workshops on tap, and we are very excited about the 2021 show. It’s an opportunity to set a precedent for the industry by producing a dynamic virtual trade show, and we look forward to a very successful Design & Construction Week.”
