The 21st Century Building Expo & Conference is the premier networking and educational event for the home building industry in the Southeast! Builders, developers, remodelers, real estate agents, trade contractors and other industry professionals from North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia & Tennessee will converge in Charlotte for this annual event each September.
The three-day educational conference offers NAHB Education courses, North Carolina Builder Institute courses and general session seminars to keep all industry professionals up-to-date on the latest trends, techniques and products for the building industry. The Expo Floor, open for two days, showcases the latest products and services from suppliers and manufacturers serving the home building industry. In addition, the invaluable networking at the STARS Awards Gala and Kick-Off Celebration will keep you coming back year after year!
The 21CBEC is hosted by the North Carolina Home Builders Association, the largest state association in the federation of home builders associations.
The 21st Century Building Expo & Conference offers you the opportunity to interact one-on-one with builders throughout the Southeastern United States. As one of the most affordable builder tradeshows in the country, exhibitors can get the most return on their marketing investment by selecting the 21CBEC. Did you know live meetings actually save time and money and result in a more effective exchange of ideas?
Why choose the 21CBEC?
We could tell you all about the things that make the 21CBEC great - we’ve survived the last five years; we use a right-to-work facility, saving you considerable money; we serve an area with a strong housing market; and the list goes on.
But what you REALLY care about is What’s In It For My Company?
1. You will create brand awareness. This helps your company become a player in its market.
2. You will generate qualified leads. With it becoming harder and harder to get face time with potential clients in their office, we bring them to you. Bring them to your booth where they can interact with the new products, something they aren’t able to do online.
3. You will be the "expert." Builders research your product online, but when you are face to face, you become the “expert” who can answer their questions immediately.
4. You will build relationships with your customers and potential customers. They can offer you feedback on what you need to do to compete stronger, increase sales and take your business to the next level. We invite you to capitalize on this opportunity to show home builders how your company can illustrate what’s in it for them.
