The 21CBEC is the premier tradeshow and educational event for the home building industry in the Southeast. Builders, remodelers, trade contractors, real estate agents, land developers and other industry professionals are invited to join us September 15-17, 2015 at the Charlotte Convention Center.
As a professional in the building industry, you likely visit the 21st Century Building Expo & Conference to learn new things to help improve your business. It may be through a class or on the exhibit hall floor. Or, you could pick up a new tidbit through conversations with your builder and associate peers.
The 21CBEC offers excellent networking opportunities in various settings to help you further your business.
The largest event each year is the 21st Century Building Expo & Conference (21CBEC). The 21CBEC is held each September in Charlotte, NC, and provides the largest expo floor in the region and by far the largest selection of trade-related courses and seminars in the Southeast to be found over a couple of days in one location. For anyone involved in the building industry in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, or Virginia, this is a must-do event. You need to either be exhibiting or attending. If you do, you will be ahead for it!
In conjunction with the 21CBEC another major NCHBA event is held annually, the prestigious STARS Awards. The STARS Awards program honors the achievements of builders, associates, realtors, media and advertising professionals, and many others who make major contributions to the residential home building industry. Design, building, and marketing projects are submitted earlier in the year and then judged by experts in the industry. The culmination of the competition is a gala event where the winners of these awards are announced at a themed dinner.
The 21st Century Building Expo & Conference is your best and most affordable way to market to home builders throughout the Southeastern United States. The housing market continues to improve, and builders are interested in new products and services to provide for their clients.
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.
