The Inside Outside Guys: International Builders Show Highlights Innovations
By Ken Calverley and Chuck Breidenstein
DETROIT, February 17, 2022 ~ If you were looking for a builder during the week of Feb. 8-10, they were very likely in Orlando, Florida, where nearly 120,000 industry professionals converged for Design and Construction Week which included the National Kitchen and Bath Association Show (NKBA), and the International Builders Show (IBS).
The events included a keynote on Tuesday morning from Earvin “Magic” Johnson as a prelude to 2,000 exhibits spread out over nearly 1.2 million square feet of space at the Orange County Convention Center, the second largest convention center in the United States.
In addition to product launches and exhibits, the event included 110 dedicated education sessions and ongoing “how-to” programs on the exhibit floor, featuring specific product application and training.
The Guys were in attendance along with some of the folks from Motor City Floors and Coatings in Novi, who sponsored our trip and allowed us to broadcast from their exhibit in the South Hall.
