Top 5 Reasons Young Professionals Should Attend IBS


The International Builders' Show (IBS) is the largest residential construction trade show of the year, where thousands of industry professionals can network with experts and learn about the latest game-changing products.

Attendees of all ages, niches and backgrounds come from around the world, making IBS an extraordinarily valuable experience -- especially for young professionals.

As the Federation celebrates Young Professionals (YP) Week, it's important to highlight the key reasons why the industry's younger, emerging leaders should attend the upcoming IBS in Las Vegas from Feb. 27-29.

1. Learning Opportunities

IBS has more than 100 education sessions to gain insights and learn strategies from experts. And there are also pre-show educational opportunities as well.

2. Networking

There are many opportunities for young professionals to learn from their peers, whether they're looking to connect with industry professionals, partners, or suppliers. The show floor is flooded with networking chances, and the IBS Young Pro Party is an exclusive event for professionals under 40.

3. Experience New Products

Hundreds of new products will make their way onto the show floor, and attendees will have the chance to see them in action and then be able to ask questions directly to the exhibitors.

4. Inspiration

Are you stuck in a creativity rut? IBS is the perfect place to feed off the energy and passion of the world's most talented residential construction industry entrepreneurs.

5. Look at the Industry's Future

To get ahead, you need a sense of what the future of construction looks like. From building practices to design techniques, IBS has all that and more.
