Our principal builders Steve and Lisa Appler, along with CCH purchasing manager Ron Appler traveled to the NAHB International Builders Show. Wow, what a show! Even the bizarre weather – it snowed in Vegas on Wednesday night—didn’t dampen the 75th annual International Builders’ Show, the biggest show in a decade and an indication of just how vibrant the home building industry currently is!
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.
