Trade Shows


Can anyone recommend some good trade shows? I see there is one going on right now in Vegas called NECA19. Looks like a good one. Seems like every major tool company is there with nice displays. I’m always looking to travel and what better way to do it than with a tax write off. Oh and who doesn’t like tool shopping lol

Re: Trade Shows


International Builder's Show is in Vegas in Jan. 21-23. sign up for the educational classes if you like you can also join the National Homebuilders Assn and work on certifications on the Sat/Sun/Mon before IBS.

Your local homebuilders assn may offer classes as well-updates on building codes and energy codes seems to be offered every year or two around here.

Re: Trade Shows


give it 2-3 years and it may cycle back to Orlando. Was there at least the last 3 years I believe-I went in 2017 and 2018 and it had a lot to offer.

Re: Trade Shows


The "World Of Concrete" show in Vegas is a huge one that covers almost everything.

I've been going to the JLCLive show in Providence for years. Well worth it in my opinion.
