The Centrals: The Not-So-Hidden Gem of the Builders’ Show


Since 2014, the Centrals have been one of the best places
at the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) to explore fun, new ideas,
refine your skills and gain business information about your specific niche in
the building industry. 

The six main Centrals are available during the three days
of the show (January 9 – 11, 2018). They are:

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

Open to all Design
& Construction Week™
attendees, the Centrals have a little bit of
everything rolled into one fun, comfortable space. There you can take in a
seminar, demonstration, workshop or simply network with others while grabbing a
bite to eat. When programs aren’t occurring, the casual atmosphere makes it a
great place to go to relax on the comfortable furniture, catch up on email,
make a few phone calls or meet with a colleague to talk shop. 

The programs are more informal than traditional education
sessions, but just as engaging. They feature some of the best industry
professionals who are passionate about their area of expertise. 

The Centrals have their own programming schedule, and you
can find the complete list of programs inside the Official IBS Guidebook
(available at the show) or by visiting
