“NARI is proud to be a platinum sponsor of Design & Construction week,” David Pekel, MCR, UDCP, CAPS, CCP, Interim CEO and NARI 2018-2019 President said. “We look forward to the Executive Roundtable and for our allied organizations to share progress made on the pivotal issue of Workforce Development as well as to share best practices. We encourage all NARI members to attend this February in Las Vegas.”
“We have seen explosive growth in Design & Construction Week over the past few years, primarily due to the draw of having so many big industry players all in one place,” said NAHB CEO Jerry Howard. “The support of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry only further bolsters the prominence of this event. DCW has become the premier event for our industry, and we expect the 2019 show to be the best year yet.”
“NKBA is delighted about the continuation of this significant collaboration, which brings so many industry professionals together in one place," said Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO. “The co-location of these two important shows creates huge value for everyone involved, and it’s ultimately a huge win for consumers, as we lead the way in connecting the industry.”
Both shows are located at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The expos are open Tuesday, Feb. 19, through Thursday, Feb. 21. NKBA and NAHB each have pre-show activities on tap; click on buildersshow.com and kbis.com for full scheduling and information.
