NAHB International Builder’s Show 2019

February 19 @ 8:00 am - February 21 @ 5:00 pm

With a clear slowdown in home sales at the same time when disruptive technologies are maturing, the International Builders’ Show (IBS) should be very interesting this year.

We have a team of 11 people attending, eight of whom are speaking at the eight events listed below.

We will also be hosting two client events there and attending The Nationals award show where many DesignLens™-featured communities will be honored.

We would love to see you at IBS this year. Please feel free to reach out to any of our team members below with questions or to schedule in-person meetings.
