Billed as the largest annual light construction trade show in the world, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) 2020 International Builders Show (IBS) is set to open in Las Vegas this week.

IBS returns to the Las Vegas Convention Center, Jan. 21-23, where it will again co-locate with the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s (NKBA) Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) for the 7th annual Design & Construction Week (DCW).

The two shows are expected to host more than 2,000 exhibiting brands spanning over a million net square feet of exhibit space, for the largest annual gathering of the residential design and construction industry.

“It’s our goal for the NAHB International Builders’ Show to be the event of the year for our members and industry professionals,” said outgoing NAHB Chairman Greg Ugalde, a home builder and developer from Torrington, Conn. “Nowhere else will you find top-level education sessions, a variety of networking opportunities, special events and an exhibit hall full of innovative products all in one place. This is truly an event you can’t miss.”

Ugalde will be replaced by incoming chairman Dean Mon, a developer and builder from New Jersey.

Attendees with a full conference registration will have access to more than 130 education sessions led by renowned experts on a wide range of industry topics. New this year, Master Workshops, previously known as Master Sessions, will be held on Monday, Jan. 20, the day before the show officially kicks off as part of pre-show education and will be open to all registered show attendees for an additional fee.

The 2020 show will kick off on the morning of Jan. 21 with an Opening Ceremonies event featuring baseball legend and former New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez.

The High-Performance Building Zone will feature real-world construction demonstrations, and IBS Live will host presentations focused on what’s next in home building. Additionally, the IBS show floor will feature the CEDIA Pavilion, a space showcasing exhibitors who specialize in technology solutions for the home.

That evening, OMNIA Nightclub at Caesars Palace will host the Official IBS House Party. Other events throughout the week include the Young Pro Party Wednesday night at On The Record at Park MGM, followed by the IBS Closing Concert Thursday night with a performance by award-winning rock band, the Doobie Brothers.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour NAHB’s official IBS show homes, The New American Home (TNAH) and The New American Remodel (TNAR). The homes are designed to showcase innovative building technologies, emerging design trends and the latest building products. The showcase products in the homes are provided by members of the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council.
