FALLS CHURCH, Va. (Aug. 24, 2017) – The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors—National Association (PHCC) is a supporting organization of the fifth annual Design & Construction Week (DCW).
Founding partners, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) will continue driving the possibilities of home forward at the co-location of the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show® (KBIS) and the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) in Orlando, Florida, Jan. 9-11, 2018. The fifth annual DCW will bring together more than 80,000 design and construction professionals in the largest gathering of the residential design and construction industry.
PHCC members will enjoy discounted registration for the event, while the organization’s leaders will participate in the Design & Construction Week Executive Roundtable to discuss key issues and trends in the U.S. housing market and exchange ideas with other industry thought leaders.
“PHCC is looking forward to building on the partnerships we established during last year’s Executive Roundtable and collaborating again this year with our peers in the construction industry,” said PHCC President Patrick Wallner. “Opportunities like this reinforce that when PHCC’s leaders – and our members – get face-to-face with others facing the same issues and challenges, especially workforce development, we not only find immediate value in sharing ideas and best practices with each other, but we extend our reach,” he added. “I encourage PHCC members to attend.”
“This important collaboration is a key way to bring great value to our membership and all attendees at both shows,” said Bill Darcy, CEO of the NKBA. “It’s another way to expand our relationship with other segments of the industry – and provide valuable networking and learning opportunities – to help our members grow their businesses.”
“Design & Construction Week has become the industry’s must-attend event with so many industry players in one place,” said NAHB CEO Jerry Howard. “Now entering our fifth year of co-location, we continue to add big names to the roster and expect to see continued growth and collaboration, making this our best year yet.”
Show dates include:
- Kitchen & Bath Industry Show: January 9-11, Orange County Convention Center
- NAHB International Builders’ Show: January 9-11, Orange County Convention Center
Registration is open at designandconstructionweek.com; registered attendees will have access to both trade shows held during Design & Construction Week.
