WASHINGTON, D.C. – April 20, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is pleased to announce that Professional Builder has been selected as the media partner for The New American Home, the official show home of the International Builders’ Show™.
Professional Builder will be the media partner for The New American Home beginning with the 2016 Builders’ Show, which will be held January 19-21 in Las Vegas. The show home, one of the association’s most successful and visible programs, is produced and presented by NAHB’s Leading Suppliers Council.
Professional Builder is published by Chicago-based SGC Horizon Building Group.
“We are very excited about working with Professional Builder on The New American Home,” said Tom Woods, NAHB’s chairman of the board and a home builder from Blue Springs, Mo. “More than 5,000 industry professionals visit this home every year during the International Builders’ Show, and we know that tens of thousands more will get a good sense of the home’s design trends and great new products from the pages of Professional Builder.”
The show home is a real-world laboratory demonstrating design trends, construction techniques, and the latest innovations in products for residential construction. The builders, remodelers, architects and other housing industry professionals who view the home can take ideas from the home and use them – in whole or in part – in housing built any place and in any price range. The New American Home showcases leading-edge trends in energy efficiency, indoor-air quality, universal design, outdoor living, high performance construction and other aspects of home building.
“Professional Builder and Custom Builder are excited to partner with the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council on this unique and innovative project,” said SGC Horizon Building Group Director-Principal Tony Mancini. “The New American Home offers great education and idea generation for our builders, interior designers and architects of all sizes.”
Established in 1964 as the Suppliers Council for the National Association of Home Builders, the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council initiated The New American Home program 20 years later in 1984.
A key component of the NAHB federation, the Leading Suppliers Council is about much more than just products and services. The Council also offers members the opportunity to shape NAHB’s policies and programs.
