The National Association of Home Builders shortened the schedule for next year's International Builders' Show from the traditional four days to three days. The next Builders show will be in Las Vegas Jan. 22-24, 2013. NAHB said it is the largest annual light construction trade show in the world, and the 2013 event is expected to attract 50,000 attendees and 800 industry suppliers.
"Tightening the trade show floor experience to three full days with expanded hours saves everyone money and results in a more productive experience for all," said Mark Pursell, senior vice president of NAHB's Exhibition, Marketing and Sales Group.
"At the same, we are investing into a wider selection of networking opportunities at the show - which is what both attendees and exhibitors say they want," Pursell said. "Dropping day four and adding an additional half hour to the schedule each day, allows exhibitors to save resources on an extra night of hotel accommodations, meals and other staffing and contractor expenses."
