Centrals, Anyone? At IBS, They’re a Must

sodasYou’re planning your schedule for the NAHB International Builders’ Show Jan. 10-12 in Orlando. Have you made time for the Centrals?

The IBS Centrals are fun and informative hangouts with a little bit of everything rolled into one, comfortable space — each is focused on a niche area of the building industry:

  • 55+ Housing
  • Custom Building
  • Design Studio
  • Multifamily
  • Remodelers
  • Sales

Anyone who has registered for IBS is welcome to check out any Central (or all six), attend a few workshops and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere. The Centrals are a great place to take in a seminar, discussion or simply network with others while grabbing a bite to eat.

When programs aren’t happening, the casual atmosphere and comfortable furniture make them a great place to relax. You can catch up on emails, make phone calls back to the office, meet with one of our specialists to discuss trends and challenges, or talk shop with a colleague.

What are IBS Centrals Programs Like?

Programs are more informal than traditional education sessions, but just as engaging. You’ll still get fresh ideas and information on the latest trends. You’ll hear from industry pros who love and live their areas of expertise — so the discussions are always a bit more animated and entertaining.

Typically, the sessions are shorter — usually lasting 30 to 45 minutes — than traditional education, and many attendees will enjoy the small group learning opportunities, too.

Centrals are open all three days of the show, Jan. 10-12. On Tuesday and Wednesday, the hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Thursday they are open from 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
