Find your peers and experts in your industry niche at the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) Centrals. While many different types of professionals gather for the show, it’s also nice to mix, mingle, share ideas, be inspired and learn from your peers. That’s what the Centrals do for niche audiences attending the show.
What is a Central?
The IBS Centrals are lounge-like rooms (one for each Central) in the convention center during the Builders’ Show. Niche industry professionals explore fun, new ideas, refine skills and gain business information about the specific industry niche.
What are the Niche Centrals?
There are 7 IBS Centrals.
What to Expect in a Central
Each Central at the Builders’ Show has its own room in the convention center tucked into the hall where IBS Education Sessions are. In addition to a lounge-type area where you can rest and relax from the show floor, it’s a catalyst for sparking conversations with fellow professionals in your industry area.
Each Central also has scheduled educational programs. The Centrals programs are more informal than traditional IBS Education Sessions, but are just as engaging. They feature some of the best and most passionate industry professionals about their expertise — so the discussions are always lively.
How to be Part of a Central
