Creating a client’s dream home comes with its own hurdles, challenges and questions. At the 2023 NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS), custom builders can meet and learn from fellow professionals in their niche at the IBS Custom Building Central.
Here are just a few things you can look forward to at this IBS Central:
#1: Get Exclusive Q&As with Custom Building Experts
Get answers to your questions directly from the experts at Custom Building Central. Find answers you need about sustainable building practices at Up Close with Peter Pfeiffer, Ray Tonjes, Alan Barley & Jason Tanenbaum, or about managing clients’ emotions and expectations at Up Close with Ed Earl. IBS Central are open to all registration types.
#2: Learn Strategies for Hiring and Keeping New Talent
In the midst of the worker shortage our industry faces, we’re offering several Custom Building Central-specific education sessions to discuss how to attract and keep new talent. If you’re growing your team or working on improving your company culture, then you won’t want to miss the seminar Navigating Gen Z & Building a Company That Attracts the Right People.
#3: Network with Likeminded Builders
Breakfast every morning. Happy hours every afternoon. Meet-and-greets in between. There are a lot of opportunities at Custom Building Central to meet professionals in your industry who face the same issues you do and have unique solutions to the problems you share. And who knows? You might meet a new business partner or collaborator over coffee!
#4: Discover Award-Winning Custom Builds
The Best in American Living Awards are the premier awards for the custom-building industry. Attend The Nationals to see who walks away with the Custom Builder of the Year Award and more. Both are ticketed events so be sure to buy your tickets before they sell out.
#5: Find Tips for Improving Your Bottom Line
With the supply chain in chaos and the features your customers crave on backorder, it’s especially hard for you and your team to provide the services that your customers expect while also turning a profit. Throughout the show there are informal discussions and training at Custom Building Central that discuss exactly that.
Take part in a round table discussion of customer service best practices or gain insights on ways to leverage contractors to increase your profit margins.
If you want to boost your custom-building business in 2023, this Central is the place to start. Find out more about Custom Building Central on the IBS website.
We hope to see you there!
