The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, together with the National Association of Home Builders, announced that the NAHB International Builders’ Show, the home building industry’s premier event, will make Las Vegas its home annually from 2027 through 2039.
“NAHB’s past annual International Builders’ Shows in Las Vegas have represented more than $1 billion in cumulative estimated economic impact to the destination,” says Steve Hill, CEO of the LVCVA. “Their new commitment for 13 consecutive shows will bring an additional estimated $1.26 billion into Southern Nevada’s economy.”
NAHB has a long history of hosting the annual IBS in Las Vegas 19 out of the past 43 years that the show has traveled around the country. IBS is the most important event of the year for the U.S. home building industry and the largest annual light construction trade show in the world. The show attracts approximately 60,000 industry leaders annually including more than 1,400 manufacturers and suppliers to explore the hottest new products, services and technology in over 300 categories.
“The International Builders’ Show is the premiere annual residential construction event, highlighting the greatest the industry has to offer,” says NAHB CEO Jerry Howard. “LVCVA’s commitment to this expansion will allow our show to grow even further.”
IBS 2020 will return to Las Vegas as scheduled from January 21-23, 2020, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
