Exhibit space is still available to reserve for the 17th annual Southern Building Show & Conference. The Southern Building Show hosts builders, remodelers, architects, designers and building trades professionals from Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.The show runs May 13-15 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
This year the Southern Building Show is co-located with Vision10:International Window Coverings Expo which will add another 5,000 new buyers to the floor. Twenty-five percent of Vision attendees are designers – the key decision makers in design, remodeling and construction. The combined attendance will be approximately 7,000 attendees.
To help attract additional buyers to the show, the Southern Building Show has increased the number of regional HBA endorsements. To date, over 35 regional HBA’s have committed to sending members to the show.
Building on the success from last year the Southern Building Show is bringing back guaranteed, one-on-one builder appointments. These meetings will take place on Thursday, May 13 and Friday, May 14. Exhibitors are guaranteed up to eight appointments.
This year the Southern Building Show has introduced an Interactive Floorplan and on-line Show Planner tool that can be accessed through the Southern Building Show Web site http://www.southernbuildingshow.com. This will enable attendees to “walk” the exhibit floor, weeks in advance of the show. Exhibitor listings are added as soon as they sign up and may be updated as often as they like, so each listing can match the current marketing cycle.
