WASHINGTON, DC -- The 2016 show, to be held in Las Vegas, Jan. 19-21, is part of the third annual Design & Construction Week™ (DCW), a co-location of IBS with the National Kitchen & Bath Association's (NKBA) Kitchen & Bath Industry Show® (KBIS). DCW 2016 will also include two partner events: The International Window Coverings Expo (IWCE) and The International Surface Event (TISE). While the shows remain separate and distinct, all IBS registrants will have access to the exhibit floors of all of the shows held as part of Design & Construction Week.
"Industry professionals from across the globe flock to IBS for its incredible offerings, and we expect the 2016 show to be yet another banner year," said NAHB Chairman Tom Woods, a home builder from Blue Springs, Mo. "There is no other place where you can get this type of industry knowledge in one place. With an impressive show floor featuring the latest and greatest products, unmatched education sessions, exciting special events, networking opportunities and access to four show floors, this event is not one to be missed."
More than 1,300 of the industry's top manufacturers and suppliers covering 500,000 net square feet of exhibit space, will pack the IBS show floor with the latest and most innovative products. Attendees who purchase the full conference registration option will also have access to more than 120 education sessions covering the latest techniques and trends in the building industry, as well as other exciting education features such as the new Innovation Hub covering the latest innovations in technology, building materials and more. As always, all attendees will have access to the Exhibitor Floor Forums offering product demos from several featured exhibitors, the High Performance Building Zone featuring building science experts leading a series of interactive sessions on high performance and green technologies, and IBS Live! sessions featuring lively demos and presentations on a variety of topics.
Attendees will also have their pick of numerous special events. Kicking off this year's show is acclaimed Tonight Show host and stand-up comedian Jay Leno, who will serve as the keynote speaker for the opening ceremonies. Another show favorite is the IBS Spike Concert presented by GEICO, where attendees will have the chance to hear a performance of greatest hits by the number one selling duo in history, Hall & Oates.
Another of the many draws of IBS is The New American Home® (TNAH), the official show home of the International Builders' Show. Now in its 33rd year, The New American Home is constructed annually in conjunction with IBS to showcase innovative construction technologies, emerging design trends and the latest building products. NAHB and Professional Builder magazine co-produce the show home. The showcase products in the home are provided by members of the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council.
The NAHB International Builders' Show is not open to the general public. Building industry professionals and their affiliates are invited to register by visiting the show's website at www.BuildersShow.com.
