More than 76,000 builders, remodelers and home building professionals poured into the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV., for three days to attend the 80th annual NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS). This was the biggest IBS in 15 years, with over 1,800 exhibitors, including 800 new companies, filling four halls and an outdoor pavilion for a total of more than 678,000 net square feet, a nearly 12% increase in floor size over last year’s show.

“The energy and enthusiasm of attendees on the exhibit floor matched the positive feedback we received from our exhibitors,” said NAHB Chief Revenue Officer Geoff Cassidy. “To help attendees maximize their experience, we organized this year’s exhibit floor into six distinct product segments. Many IBS attendees told us they wanted floor segmentation, so this was a direct result of us listening to their needs.” 

This year also marked the 11th anniversary of Design & Construction Week (DCW), the co-location of IBS and the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s (NKBA’s) Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS). DCW drew over 117,000 attendees, and more than 2,400 exhibitors occupied over one million net square feet of indoor and outdoor exhibits. NAHB and NKBA announced an agreement to extend the co-location of IBS and KBIS for four years through 2030.

IBS 2025 will return to the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV., on February 25-27, 2025.
