NAHB accepts speaker proposals for 2017 Builders’ Show

The National Association of Home Builders is now seeking proposals to speak at the 2017 NAHB International Builders’ Show. The show, to be held Jan. 10-12 in Orlando, Fla. is the largest annual light construction show in the world, drawing attendees from all facets of the housing industry.

Each year, NAHB selects nearly 300 speakers to present education sessions at IBS on an array of industry topics ranging from sales and marketing to design to remodeling. NAHB is looking for education session ideas that are original and full of innovative, cutting-edge content geared primarily to an audience with 10-plus years in the building industry.

“The International Builders’ Show is considered the event of the year for our industry, and the education sessions offered are certainly among the biggest draws,” said NAHB Chairman Ed Brady, a homebuilder and developer from Bloomington, Ill. “The speakers we get are top-notch experts in their fields, and with nearly 60,000 attendees at the last show, it is also a great opportunity for speakers to get exposure in front of a highly engaged audience.”

NAHB members and non-members who are affiliated with the residential building industry are eligible to submit education session proposals. All proposals must be submitted online and are due on April 15. For additional information on proposal requirements, or to submit a proposal, visit www.nahb.org.
