Plans for the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) are underway. Be prepared to learn, connect and grow with these incredible educational offerings:

New for IBS 2020: Master Workshops are changing!

Previously known as Master Sessions, these advanced, 3-hour workshops dig deep into specific industry topics.

This year they will be held on Monday, January 20, the day before the show officially kicks off as part of pre-show education and will be open to all registered show attendees for an additional fee.

This date change allows us to accommodate more attendees, and it will give you more time during the week to take advantage of the full array of sessions offered as part of full registration . Some of the industry’s most well-known and respected experts will lead this year’s Master Workshops:

  • Reducing Cost + Improving Construction Quality: Can You Have It Both Ways?, led by Gord Cooke, Justin Wilson, Mark LaLiberte and Sam Rashkin
  • Builder Branding: A 10-Step Process to Differentiate Yourself & Create Employee Loyalty, led by David Miles
  • The New Rules for Creating an Outstanding Customer Experience, led by Mark Hodges
  • The Digital Transformation of a Home Builder, led by Al Trellis
  • 10 Ways to Shorten the Buying Cycle, led by Jeff Shore
  • Reimagining Tomorrow’s Homes & Neighborhoods: Attainability, Amenities & Great Design, led by Kristen Maher, Steven Dewan, Todd Larner and Paul Johnson
