Due to health and safety concerns and ongoing travel restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, NAHB and the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) regretfully announced that the 8th annual Design & Construction Week (DCW) featuring NAHB's International Builders' Show (IBS) and NKBA's Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) will no longer be an in-person event. Instead, the two groups are planning robust, all-virtual events.
The International Builders' Show was scheduled to take place on Feb. 9-11, 2021, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. The new all-virtual IBS 2021 will still take place the week of Feb. 8 with extended programming. IBS will return to Orlando as an in-person event Feb. 8-10, 2022.
NAHB is committed to producing an outstanding virtual IBS event featuring:
- The ability to access online exhibitors from IBS and KBIS
- Product launches and cutting-edge housing and design innovations;
- Tours of The New American Home and The New American Remodel;
- Education sessions and expert demos from the top leaders in the industry; and
- Networking opportunities to connect safely with exhibitors, speakers and other attendees.
