New Building Technologies To be Showcased at IBS

Washington, DC — Building professionals and residential remodelers looking for an edge in the latest home building technologies will be able to see those products on display at “nextBUILD,” the renamed technology component of the National Association of Home Builders’ International Builders’ Show.

The housing industry’s largest annual trade show and exhibition, IBS is expected to attract more than 100,000 housing professionals, including builders, architects, remodelers, kitchen and bath professionals, among others, according to the Washington, DC-based NAHB.

The show, which features exhi-bits from many well-known kitchen and bath product manufacturers, is scheduled to take place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Feb. 7-10, 2007.

“Cutting-edge builders realize that technology is critical not only to their business management, but to their customers, as consumers are demanding state-of-the-art technology in their homes,” said NAHB official Harvey Edwards.

Formerly called tecHOMExpo, nextBUILD will feature more than 200 exhibitors offering back-end office technologies to help builders improve their business management processes, as well as the top technologies that consumers are asking for in their homes, the NAHB said.

The show will also feature several education sessions to help builders implement the new technologies on display, the trade association added.
