Congratulations to these amazing building professionals for really highlighting our areas’ building industry.

“IBS is always a great chance to see many new and familiar faces, new products, and attend meaningful education classes. It was exciting to feel the energy from the biggest show in years and to see our members on the show floor. It is an amazing opportunity to refresh your point of view and form new connections in business. I had a great time and encourage those that have never attended to take a moment and check out the highlights from this year’s show while making plans to attend next year.”

Megan Carroll, Executive Director of the Asheville Home Builders Association.
