"Last year's conference was the first time homebuilders and product manufacturers in the East and Southeast had an opportunity to network and learn close to home," said HomeSphere President and CEO Glenn Renner. "We are proud to once again support the show. With its new date and format, it is sure to provide even greater success to our partners."
The 2017 conference was designed based on feedback from last year's attendees. It will be held on a Thursday and Friday in May to maximize attendees' time and to allow builders to start spring construction. A "Meet the Builder" component will bring together key East Coast buyers with top manufacturers' executives.
"Last year's exhibitors and attendees gave us great feedback allowing us to improve the overall experience in 2017," said Verne Packer, executive producer of the event.
ECBC targets 16 states from Mississippi to Indiana, east to Pennsylvania and south to Florida. More than 200 companies exhibited at the 2016 conference, featuring building products, technology and other solutions designed for residential builders, remodelers, kitchen and bath professionals, architects and designers. Major manufacturers including PlyGem, Lennox, Mohawk, Amerisink, Progress Lighting and Goodman, along with industry suppliers such as Houzz, have recommitted for 2017.
Other ECBC sponsors include the Home Builders Association of Georgia and its 28 local chapters, which will hold its spring membership meeting at the show, along with other strategic partners including American Society of Interior Designers and National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
