IABA Home Show
The IABA's Home Show is the only annual home show in the area and kicks off the building season every spring. The show attracts nationwide businesses, with over 170 vendors and 5,000+ attendees and is the largest Home Show in the state.
From financing to new construction to remodeling to refurnishing... it's all in one location. You might opt to have face-face time with potential clients at your tradeshow booth. Your business can increase traffic with giveaways on the show floor, and a demonstration or workshop at this incredible event goes further than any other form of advertising.
IABA Parade of Homes
Our annual Parade of Homes showcases the latest projects and technology, outstanding home designs, styles and new technologies available to home buyers and builders in the Interior.
Consider promoting your business in one of the Parade Homes during the event with your flyers, business cards, product information, or in-person demonstrations. And, our beautiful magazine, radio, and news press coverage will ensure your advertising will be seen and heard!
This tour attracts enthusiastic visitors who look forward to meeting face-to-face with builders and asking questions as they explore beautiful new homes.
IABA Home Construction Directory
Our directory is a valuable business resource guide to the members of the IABA.
This is the book builders use when they source a subcontractor and the public will use when seeking services and products for their home projects.
We release the HCD at the IABA Home Show to over 5,000 attendees and circulate our directory throughout the year to 4,000+ residents of the Interior.
IABA Golf Tournament
The IABA Golf Tournament is a well-attended and loved event, open to all players- Members and Non-Members alike.
The event, as all golf tournaments are, is a great networking opportunity in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Players arrive to receive goodie bags filled to the brim, then compete for hole-in-one prizes, cash awards, and recognition for their incredible golf skills. After the tournament, an awards reception includes dinner and drawings for great door prizes.
