IBS 2023

This year at the International Builders Show, we partnered with the University of Denver and SGC Horizon to participate in events featuring innovation in Design and Build, ESG, Home as a Service, Talent, and Tech and Data. 

In what we called the “Show Floor Blitz,” leadership from the Alliance and the University of Denver –including 17 students– scanned the show floor to conduct research and answer specific questions related to innovation in housing.

A few of our favorite moments…

The ESG Working Group met in person to discuss how to drive ESG adoption in housing, with metrics that are designed for our industry by our industry. They’ll continue the conversation after the Housing Innovation Summit on April 28th.

At the IBS Hops & Housing Innovation Jam(b) session Dennis facilitated a conversation about smart ways to pursue R+D and de-risk innovation with Ralph Baja of Century Communities, Jeff Hopfenbeck of Simple Homes, Marissa Kasdan of KTGY, Nigel Watts of Rheia, and Russell Varone of Diamond Age. If you attended IBS, you can listen to the conversation via this link.

ProBuilder opened their Show Village early on Wednesday morning for an exclusive Alliance Network breakfast. It was a great opportunity to connect with our members and partners and a chance to share a brief introduction to our 2023 program. Many thanks to Impressa, Boxabl, and Genesis who provided early access for tours.

For the second year, Dennis sat on the panel of judges for the NAHB Start-Up Zone which featured 20 innovative companies. Check out this blog for more details on the exhibitors. 

Dennis and Betsy were featured in Builder offering Pro Tips for Navigating The Show.
