What is IBS?

The NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) is the home building industry’s most anticipated annual event. Each year, attendees can expect to experience the latest technology, see new products and access information on emerging topics and trends—the 2021 Builders’ Show will be no exception.

To meet the needs of our global audience, the show features the industry’s most important global manufacturers and suppliers and showcases products, materials and technologies involved in all types of buildings—including wood, concrete, stone and brick.


Design & Construction Week®

Design & Construction Week (DCW) features the co-location of the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) and the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show® (KBIS). This mega-event will bring together builders, general contractors, remodelers, product specifiers and building industry distributors and wholesalers from around the globe, as well as professionals in all fields related to and working within home building.
