New Opportunities

IBS Bookstore
The NAHB Bookstore is one of the major destinations for IBS attendees. Located centrally in the C lobby area of the West Building of the Orange County Convention Center, the NAHB Bookstore is visited by more than 1,000 people per day during the Show. Bookstore sponsorship is a powerful opportunity for a company to promote their brand or product to an educated and successful customer base.

IBS Scholarship Sponsorship
The IBS Scholarship Program encourages the next generation of building industry leaders to attend the Show and get involved with the association. Applicants must be NAHB members between the ages of 21-35. Twenty-four winners are selected among a group of 150 accomplished entrants. (Check out some of the 2017 winners!) Winning packages include full registration fees, airfare and hotel accommodations and tickets to the IBS House Party and Young Professionals Party.

Sponsoring the IBS Scholarship for young professionals is an excellent networking opportunity that allows one of your staff to integrate with the winners for the length of the Show, including all social gatherings. This is a terrific way to get ‘embedded’ with this group of emerging industry professionals to find out their business needs and challenges, look for opportunities for synergy, build brand awareness and demonstrate your company’s commitment to the future of the industry.
