Design Basics first started participating at the NAHB International Builders’ Show® in 1987, and with the exception of 2009, has exhibited every year. In fact, Design Basics has been recognized as the only home plan design firm to be a part of the IBS “Quarter Century Exhibitor Club.”
In January 2020, Design Basics and more than 1,400 other exhibitors welcomed 65,000 home building professionals to the IBS, which is one of the largest trade shows in the world.
Known for new product introductions and top-notch educational sessions, the IBS offers attendees numerous opportunities to enhance their businesses and the homes they build. Numerous innovations, recognized years later as some of the hottest trends in home building, first debuted at the IBS.
For 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the IBS will be 100% virtual. Known this year as the IBSx, even more home builders can attend. Without travel limitations to attend the in-person show, there’s no reason to miss out on the Expo – click here to get your FREE 4-Day Exhibit-Only pass to the 2021 IBSx Virtual Experience (though a paid registration is required if wanting to sit in on the show’s educational sessions).
All attendees can check out the exhibitor virtual booths, and Design Basics is no exception! There, visitors can view our “New for 2021” home plans, our brand new home plan catalog, and more! Our video, Home Design Headaches, will debut in the virtual booth, and visitors can attend any of our virtual sessions on new home design and marketing. In addition to “chatting” online with our staff, our booth visitors can talk with us face-to-face via video calls or schedule an online meeting with the most appropriate member(s) of our team. There is also a money-saving Show Special visitors won’t want to miss!
Just as the Coronavirus has impacted how we live in, design (have you seen our newest design amenity, the Sanctuary Space™?), and build homes, the 2021 IBSx ushers in new opportunities for thriving in these uncertain times. Participating in the IBSx helps keep home building and the NAHB strong, as together we shape the future of American Housing.
