IBS allows you to see new products, get pertinent information on the national level and to talk with other builders across the country to get their views and opinions.
This is the one time of the year that everyone in the business comes together. It’s great for finding out what's happening in all parts of the country and see what the latest trends are.
IBS is the greatest show in the Country for this Industry.
IBS is an excellent show for establishing business relationships
Attending IBS is a great way to keep your fingers on the pulse of the national housing market.
I think the show broadens your aspect of what is available. I also think it allows you to be in contact with suppliers that you wouldn't normally even know about.
The show is a great motivator!
IBS is where you can see nearly every top brand product and visit with their professionals face to face. You get to see the latest and greatest before it hits the store. There are also a wide range of seminars every day all under one roof.
IBS is a great opportunity to network and visit with folks in a professional but relaxed setting.
You can never learn so much in one venue as you can at IBS.
Being able to see the products and talk to the suppliers, all at one time in one place, saves me quite a bit of time.
IBS should be a "must" on your business calendar.
