Submit Your Education Session Proposal for IBS

Filed in Education, IBS by on April 9, 2018 0 Comments

speakingThe NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) is accepting proposals to present an education session at IBS 2019, which takes place Feb. 19-21 in Las Vegas. Submissions are due May 4.

Show leaders are looking for subject matter experts and excellent speakers on topics including remodeling and design, green building, business management and more.

IBS is the housing industry’s largest annual light construction show, attracting an audience of more than 60,000 in 2018.

Please give special attention to the “leading topics of interest” included in the Request for Proposals (RFP). These are the topics attendees tell us they most want to learn about in 2019 — these topics have evolved significantly within the last few years. Proposals that most closely align with our leading topics have the strongest chance of being selected.

Please submit proposals for our standard 60-minute Building Knowledge sessions through the RFP. We do offer additional types of educational programming at IBS and you’ll have the option to be considered for one of these.

The full roster of speakers for each session must be submitted at the time of proposal submission. And keep in mind, speaking opportunities are highly competitive — less than 25% of proposals received are selected — so please review the RFP carefully and take advantage of our Guide to Crafting Your Proposal to better your chances.
