panel of speakers at IBS

Education at IBS is always a centerpiece of the Builders’ Show. The 2024 IBS Education lineup promises to dazzle and captivate its attendees. With a mix of returning beloved sessions coupled with enhancements to IBS Education, there’s a wealth of knowledge awaiting every professional in the residential construction industry at the Builders’ Show.

New Upgrades to the IBS Education Experience

At IBS, one of our main objectives is to provide unmatched opportunities for industry learning and professional advancement. We recognize that overcrowding impacted the learning experience for some attendees at IBS 2023. In response, we’re implementing enhancements to the IBS Education programming to increase the number of sessions by 25% over IBS 2023.

“Education planning for IBS 2024 is on track to be the best yet. We heard loud and clear that too many 2023 sessions were overcrowded, so in crafting programs and developing the schedule for 2024 we’re taking steps to make education accessible to all attendees. We’re adding additional time slots for education programs and increasing the number of encore sessions. The same high-quality content and better access across the three days – you won’ want to miss it!” – Heather McCune, Convention Education Subcommittee Chair

More Sessions

We’re rolling even more of the most sought-after sessions. These repeat sessions help to ensure that everyone has an additional opportunity to participate in the sessions they want to attend. We’re also increasing the number of rooms for educational sessions. By distributing more sessions across the day, attendees have greater flexibility in arranging their agendas, leading to a more effective learning experience.

Building Knowledge Sessions

These 60-minute sessions in 9 tracks are the foundation of education at IBS. You are sure to find the best education the industry has to offer on today’s most relevant topics.

Super Sessions

Sometimes, more is better. When it comes to Super Sessions, this is absolutely the case. We’ve transformed three of our most popular IBS sessions into super-charged educational experiences.

Learning Labs

Learning Labs are fast-paced sessions using unique presentation formats (think lightning rounds and Ted-talk style), interactive technology, audience participation and more.

Game Changers

These daily keynotes feature thought leaders who transform the way you think about and address issues critical to the housing industry.
