With more than 75,000 likely attendees visiting 1,700+ exhibitors at the 2015 NAHB International Builders Show (IBS) and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas, the amount of products available to see and sample are practically mind-boggling.
But it’s well worth taking a good look around–last year, 95% of attendees say they discovered new products at IBS. But where should you start? Luckily, BUILDER Magazine offers a great preview of what they predict to be this year’s showstoppers.
Here are some quick highlights:
