What a week! In February, we all took a week off to go to the NAHB International Builder’s Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. A first for the Buena Vista Builders Team, this convention was one we won’t soon forget! Hundreds of expos and tons of educational series, we left feeling like we didn’t even see half of what was there!
The International Builder Show (IBS) celebrated its 75th year this year in Las Vegas, Nevada. The trade show takes place every year in either Las Vegas, San Antonio, or Orlando. “With more than 100,000 people attending Design & Construction Week® the exhibit halls were jammed and the energy was palpable. The IBS exhibit floor alone spanned more than 600,000 net square feet and featured more than 1,500 exhibitors. Attendees saw the latest in home technology products, watched live building demos, participated in hammer contests and craft brew tastings and networked with the best of best in our industry and collecting IBS swag along the way,” (Know the Show: IBS Blog).
Last week, the Buena Vista Builders team took the week off and traveled to Vegas to enjoy the trade show, sit in on education sessions and visit the Vegas attractions. The Las Vegas Convention Center is home to the three exhibit halls that were filled to the brim with vendors from all over the country. Some of the vendors that BVB visited were: Artis Wall System, BuilderTrend, Builders Lighting, Floor & Décor, Keene Building Products, Lab Design Laminate, Little Giant Ladder Systems, and Wedi.
It wasn’t all work and no play for the BVB team. We went site seeing, as well as indulged our palates with wonderful food. One of our favorite restaurants was Gordon Ramsey Burger on the Vegas main street.
The BVB Team plans to attend the 2020 International Builder Show and they hope to see you there!
