More to Enjoy at IBS 2020
Besides masses of great product information, IBS 2020 offers an excellent array of educational opportunities with 100+ education sessions in 7 tracks that cover the breadth of the industry. Building industry professionals that want to stay competitive can take advantage of the knowledge passed on by industry experts from across the country. Master workshops and NAHB Education courses allow participants the chance to dive deep into industry topics while earning NAHB CEUs.
From construction and codes to sales and marketing, there is something for everyone on your team to benefit from. This year, over 80% of the education sessions are new content that is being presented for the first time. Some of the education sessions take place before the start of the show and are held at various locations.
Other education highlights to look forward to at IBS 2020 are the Tech Bytes, Building Knowledge and Spotlight Sessions featuring high-profile speakers highlighting the latest industry trends. An investment into the education sessions may be a consideration for those who wish to take their construction career to the next level (fees in addition to Exhibit Hall admission).

Open to all IBS registrants, The Centrals are a more informal education opportunity where you can gain new ideas and information about your specific niche. Always enthusiastic and entertaining, these lively programs, demonstrations, and hands-on workshops feature top industry professionals who are passionate about what they do.
IBS 2020 – Not Only About Building Knowledge
While the exhibit hall and the education sessions will pack your mind with insight and ideas, IBS is not just about education and professional development. There are a variety of networking and social events to help you balance out the show with a little fun.
