OCTOBER 26-29, 2014 RITZ CARLTON, NEW ORLEANS NEW ORLEANS, LA

FROM OUR BUILDERS:

“The Builder Exchange allowed me the time to focus on the products, trends and national suppliers. The time I spent in those two days was much more focused than I would have had at my office. Much fewer distractions than at the office and you can begin meaningful conversations. It was very informative and I would recommend it to another builder or supplier.”
- Dan Ryan Builders

“Great avenue for builders and suppliers to create relationships and cut costs while improving products. Excellent concept and format! “
- Southern Home Builders

“We can get more accomplished in two days (at Builder Exchange) than we could do in 6-9 months in the office.”
