International Builders' Show Recap 2013 with Beth Bryan at UnSkinny Boppy

The International Builders' Show (IBS) is the building industry's largest trade show. This year it featured 360,000 sq. ft of exhibits and classroom space, plus it even had its own outdoor village. Focused on residential building, there is much available for both the diyer and the pro.

Hometalker and Crafty DIY Momma Beth B reports for Building Moxie and highlights some of what (and who) she saw while roaming the floor.

Beth notes:

1. A continuing trend towards mindful building for the baby boomers market.

2. The marked advancements in handicap and mobility solutions from several exhibitors.

3. New life and fortification of modular as a legitimate building possibility.

4. A theme in social media: It's not just about Twitter and Facebook anymore. Platforms like Pinterest and Hometalk too are emerging

    Thanks for sharing my recap, Building Moxie! I told Miriam I that Hometalk's social media strategies are way beyond the game in this industry and I'm so happy to be a part of this great team of like-minded people.
