international travel capabilities and a large supply of potential exhibitors, builders and remodelers to support a new tradeshow. Research indicates many suppliers and builders are not interested in traveling across the country for a tradeshow, forcing them to spend time away from their businesses, while also undertaking overall costs. As the market is turning around, these regional builders would rather stay close to home and develop an exhibition that better suits their overall needs.
The past economic recession dramatically reduced new home construction. Home builders were determined to stay in business and had to revert to remodeling and repairs of existing homes or were forced to go out of business. Over the past five years, those who successfully lasted through the crisis have now well established remodeling companies, as they re-launch their former home construction businesses. Manufacturers want access to these builders in an environment where they can do face-to-face business. This provides a much larger supplier base to the east coast, offering builders a variety of new products and services to help increase work efficiency.
The plans and key groundworks are already in place for BRE 2016. BRE has already secured the support of local trade associations, industry publications and sponsors. The Home Depot as already signed on to support the event as a title sponsor. In addition, a highly level conference program which will analyze in-depth solutions to the challenges builders face. Continuing education units (CEU’s) will also be offered to benefit attendees.
The Conference Program for the Builder Remodeler Expo will be organized and planned with the help of the various trade associations and publications that will be working in partnership with BRE. The goal of the conference is to provide cutting edge topics relevant to the various sectors of the building and remodeling industry.
The conference is scheduled for March 7, 2016, the day before the expo begins, to maximize the learning opportunity and growth for attendees. Additional seminars and educational programs will be scheduled throughout the two-day expo.
The Builder Remodeler Expo (BRE) is set to create a platform for innovation and education across the vast spectrum of the residential building and remodeling industry. For additional information visit www.builderremodelerexpo.com.o
