For those of you headed to the 2020 NAHB International Builders' Show (IBS) at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Jan. 21–23, remember that number C2138. IBS is part of Design & Construction Week, which is co-located with the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS).

C2138 is where you'll find BUILDER booth, and you'll want to find it. BUILDER, which you may know is a Hanley Wood unit, along with our siblings Metrostudy and Meyers Research, has the honor this year of sharing our space with Japan-based developer and builder Sekisui House, Ltd. Sekisui House and its U.S.-based Woodside Homes are our partners on the BUILDER Concept Chōwa project and you can learn all about this game-changing project at, don't forget, C2138.

You should clock it in to your check-list of essential destinations at IBS. Stop by, whether it's just to take a load off for a few moments as you troll the vast exhibit space, or you want to get a move on to action--through connections, through education and insight, through data, and through planning that can and will impact your in-year business and your longer term business model.

Thanks to the unique and exclusive alignment of industry leaders and internal partners, we've cooked up a live "BUILDER to Builder" program of high-level, topical, and timely sessions--drawing on subject-matter expertise and insight you'll need to make smart moves and decisions through the delicate balance of favorable and adverse market trends we're seeing as 2020 gets underway.
