Do You Attend Contractor Related Conferences/Conventions?


Do any of you attend any contractor related conferences or conventions such as JLC Live? Which ones do you think would be good for ContractorTalk to attend?

Las Vegas, so bring about 5K/person, your dancing shoes, and leave the SO at home....

Not going, because I want to live a little longer...

Re: Do You Attend Contractor Related Conferences/Conventions?


I am going to the NAHB national show next week. I've been attending since 1980, over those 35 years I've missed maybe 4 years. If I think about what I have learned from seeing the products, attending hundreds of seminars, books and audio tapes I've bought, and people I have met, I would say attending the show is the single best thing I've ever done for my building business. A lot of whatever success I've had as a builder I can attribute to this show.
