The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) officially has opened online registration for the 2022 NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS), the largest annual light construction trade show in the world.
IBS is slated to take place in person at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., Feb. 8-10, where it will again co-locate with the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show for Design & Construction Week.
The two shows, canceled as in-person events in 2020 due to COVID, are expected to host more than 1,000 exhibiting brands spanning over 800,000 net square feet of exhibit space, for the largest annual gathering of the residential design and construction industry.
“We look forward to welcoming our attendees back to Orlando for the housing industry’s premier event,” said NAHB chairman Chuck Fowke, a custom builder from Tampa. “This show offers all the top products, connections and education opportunities in one place. IBS 2022 gives attendees a front seat to the latest trends, business solutions and industry connections and is an event that you won’t want to miss.”
Attendees with an All-Access Pass registration will have access to more than 110 education sessions led by renowned experts on a wide range of industry topics.
The 2022 event is expected to kick off on the morning of Feb. 8 with opening ceremonies, and that evening will host the Official IBS House Party. Other events throughout the week include the Young Pro Party Wednesday night at Ole Red, followed by a closing concert Thursday night.
Attendees also will have the opportunity to tour NAHB’s official IBS show homes, The New American Home and The New American Remodel.
The homes are designed to showcase innovative building technologies, emerging design trends and the latest building products.
