International Builders’ Show 2023 Recap
The Homes for HOPE team had the privilege of joining nearly 70,000 home building professionals from around the globe last week at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS), the largest annual light construction show in the world. It was a power packed event where we were one of over 1,300 exhibiters with the opportunity to connect with our partners, industry friends and many potential new partners.
On day-one, Homes for HOPE was honored as the designated charity at the Shinn Builder Partnerships Networking Reception, an event where builders and manufacturers meet to network before the big event. During this time, we enjoyed connecting with industry leaders from around the country. Brian Hall of Classica Homes out of Charlotte, NC was the fortunate recipient of Homes for HOPE’s donated grand prize of a signed football by former NFL wide receiver, Terrell Owens.
Throughout the rest of the show, we connected with many new potential Homes for HOPE partners at the booth and various networking events. We are excited to see where these new connections with industry leaders from around the country lead.
Another huge blessing was the opportunity to meet with some familiar faces of current partners and friends who came up to our booth:
- McCall Homes in Billings, MT
- Grand Homes in Dallas, TX
- Southern Development Homes in Charlottsville, VA
- Rosewood Communities in Greenville County, SC
- Atlantic Builders in Northern, VA
- Bay to Beach Builders in Sussex County, MD
It was wonderful to connect with the former Homes for HOPE executive director Jack Nulty and other industry friends – HomeAid, Operation Finally Home, ECI, Paradigm, and Builders First Source. And a big shout out to the NAHB leadership who generously donate our booth each year, where we will be returning to Las Vegas on Feb. 27-29 for IBS 2024!
Weren’t able to make it by our booth this year at IBS? We’d love to reconnect via a brief virtual meeting! Email email@example.com to set something up.
