2017 IBS a Great Success!

The 2017 International Builder’s Show was held, Mid January, in Orlando Florida. The ceremonies started off with a history of NAHB’s 75  years from its inception.  Our very own Kevin Kelly, of Leon N. Weiner & Associates, starred in the show!

That evening, HBADE hosted a mixer at David’s Club, at the Hilton Orlando.  There were about 60 members mingling and chatting with other members.  We would like to thank our generous sponsors for allowing us to put on this great event!
