How NAHB Members Can Learn, Save and Network at IBS 2024
NAHB members have several opportunities to learn, save, and network using their exclusive member access at the upcoming 2024 NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) in Las Vegas.
Here are some can’t-miss events to put on the calendar.
NAHB HQ (located in the Central Hall next to the IBS Store) is the place for members to relax, learn from industry professionals, and network with peers from all over the world.
Each day, members can:
- Enjoy free coffee and fresh doughnuts from 8-9 a.m. PT.
- Recharge phones and relax on comfortable couches in a new members-only area.
- Attend happy hours and $500 gift card drawings from 3:30-5 p.m. PT (Wednesday and Thursday only).
- NAHB HQ will also host a series of informative sessions geared toward young professionals on pricing contracts for a construction company (Tuesday), AI for home builders (Wednesday), and a trivia showdown (Thursday). Each session will take place from 2-2:30 p.m. PT and is open to all IBS attendees.

Gather with colleagues to play games, win prizes and, most importantly, learn how to save money as a member at the Member Savings Campsite at the IBS Outdoor Exhibits (Booth P42). Win daily giveaways such as a $500 Lowe’s gift card, $300 HotelPlanner gift card or even a PlayStation 5.
