The NAHB, International Builders Show (IBS) showcases the most up-to-date and innovative products and services available to contractors for the upcoming year. The show features informational seminars regarding a wide range of topics ranging from home-technology integration, trending styles & finishes, and innovative efficient product line-ups. In addition to upcoming products, contractors are able to participate in interactive seminars covering sales, marketing, construction, building codes, and construction management. Now lets go over our top IBS 2018 takeaways of the most innovative products and materials we seen at the show!
Our goals going into IBS 2018
At American Construction & Renovation, our objective was simple this year – establish relationships with market vendors and educate ourselves regarding reliable/efficient product offerings to implement with our clients in Scottsdale, Arizona. We are proud to say we succeeded in both categories. It is important that we continue to establish and grow relationships with our clients; it is equally important that we build and maintain the same relationships with our product vendors.
Our top IBS 2018 takeaways
Some of spotlight items we look forward to implementing this year include: PEX connection solutions in partnership with SharkBite and Fergusons, a full-custom offering for cabinetry. In addition to our current partnership with SOLLID cabinetry (Tempe, AZ). Innovative plumbing products from Kohler and Gerber. Customized hardware options with EMTEK and ELKAY. The TESLA solar and power options that will be breaking new ground in the market in the near future. We will be sure to cover some of these products in detail within our upcoming newsletters and articles. As we go forward into 2018 we will continue to offer our clients a wide selection of materials to fit every budget.
What lies ahead for 2018?
To close-out the 2018 NAHB IBS Show, we participated in two full-home walkthroughs including the NAHB 2018 American Remodel and the NAHB 2018 New Home Project. The showcase offered contractors the opportunity to view and utilize the most popular products for 2018 inside a ‘living home.’ As we’ve seen over the past 2-4 years, efficiency is king. Homeowners crave efficiency because it ultimately has the potential to add tangible savings to their pocketbook (and quite frankly some of the products are downright neat). As we educate ourselves on which products to avoid and which to pursue, we will be sure to bring this knowledge directly to our clients in the coming year. We hope you enjoyed our top IBS 2018 takeaways! Thank you to all of our patrons for your continued support, we look forward to an exciting 2018!
