As IBS attendees hustled between private events, education sessions, meetings, and time on the trade show floor, the BDX team was in the middle of it all!
Day two of the International Builders Show started off with BDX CEO Tim Costello delivering the keynote address at an exclusive breakfast hosted by Meyers Research benefitting building industry charity HomeAid America. Three insightful sessions brought together key industry stakeholders for an unforgettable forecasting event. Tim talked about Digital Disruption in Homebuilding and his speech was a wake up call for many in the room to start embracing the technologies and innvovations that will drive our industry forward.
Back on the trade show floor in booth W5071, we were excited to not only get to see so many builders and product manufacturers, but also connect with our industry partners. Always great to see the team from SmartTouch Interactive, and of course our friends at Marks Systems, Hyphen Solutions, Lasso CRM, and more.
We also had a new "worker" in our booth. Builder Bob made several appearances throughout the day through our BDX SnapChat Lens. To download the Lens, click here and Builder Bob can join your party too!
As always, our favorite moments of the day were our visits from our awesome clients. Drees Homes, Ellis Custom Homes, 13th Floor, David Weekley, Richmond American, Homes By Westbay, and dozens more stopped by to say hi and see the latest virtual reality technologies, the Envision online design center, our home visualizer tools and more!
