Greetings from The 2010 Builders' Show

When people ask me how my trip out to the desert went, I didn't expect to be telling them "cold and rainy."

Not what you picture when you think of Las Vegas, is it? I was hoping for a little break from the damp and dreary Atlanta winter but instead got more of the same cold, wet weather while visiting Vegas for the 2010 Builders' Show.

While the weather may have been dicey, I spent the majority of my time inside the Las Vegas Convention Center walking 500,000 square feet of trade show that featured some 1,100 exhibitors. The turnout was solid (55,000+ registered attendees) and despite a strong showing at the IBS last year and the bad weather happening outside, gloom and doom were nowhere to be found at this year's show. To me, more important than anything quantifiable, the most promising indicator for the industry was the upbeat mood and overall positive feeling amongst attendees and exhibitors alike. The exhibitors did not disappoint either - new, innovative products were showcased and I saw some very impressive booths while walking the show. The 2010 Builder's Show was no gamble!
