IBS Returns to Orlando for 2022
Online registration is now open for the 2022 International Builders’ Show from the National Association of Home Builders. The in-person conference is running from Feb. 8-10, 2022, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
The conference is slated to be co-located with the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show for Design & Construction Week. According to reports, the two shows are expected to host more than 1,000 exhibiting brands spanning over 800,000 net square feet of exhibit space.
“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, Florida. “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.”
The NAHB notes that with the return of the in-person IBS, attendees will be greeted with a variety of new show floor destinations, including:
Other attendee favorites returning in 2022 include the High-Performance Building Zone, the IBS Jobsite Safety Zone and the IBS Home Technology Solutions Pavilion in collaboration with CEDIA. Attendees with an All-Access Pass registration will have additional access to 110+ education sessions led by renowned experts on a wide range of industry topics.
Attendees can also 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.
For a deeper dive into specific industry topics, attendees have the option of participating in Pre-Show Master Workshops, which are reported to be three-hour-long, in-depth intensive programs that will be held the day before the show officially kicks off (Feb. 7, 2022). These workshops are part of pre-show education and will be open to all registered attendees for an additional fee.
The 2022 show plans to officially kick off on the morning of Feb. 8, 2022, with Opening Ceremonies and later that evening, plans to host an Official IBS House Party. Other events throughout the week include the Young Pro Party Wednesday night at Ole Red, followed by the IBS Closing Concert Thursday night.
Throughout the month of September, the NAHB says that IBS registrants can take advantage of several registration discounts, including, but not limited to a free expo pass or a $100 discount on an All-Access Pass.
