Education Opportunities Wednesday at the International Builders Show


Formal and informal educational opportunities abound at IBS for every aspect related to the home building industry.

Informally, exhibitors are eager to talk to attendees and educate them as they explain their products.  In addition, there are lots of classes available on numerous aspects.  The below is a chart of all the different courses and topics available.

Closing out the day, HBADE held a gathering reception at the Lago Nightclub and Restuarant at the Bellagio.  We had a great time unwinding after a long day of classes, meetings, walking the exhibits at the Show floor.  Lago is right on the main floor as the Bellagio filled up with other IBS attendees, gamblers, and tourists crowded onto the main floor. Our picture shows only a very small part of our reception attendees!
