This year’s BIS Show (Building Industry Show) held on November 5-6th, had a NEW home, the newly renovated Riverside Convention Center in the heart of downtown Riverside. We definitely embodied the theme of 2014’s “Building Excitement” with an incredible 60 percent increase in exhibitor booths compared to our prior year. Wednesday kicked off with the BIS edition of Meet the Builder. Next was the BIA/SC Installation of the 2015 Board of Directors and Awards presentation at the historic Mission Inn Hotel & Spa. The night ended with our third annual BIS Pub Crawl with over 300 people in attendance enjoying all that downtown Riverside has to offer. Thursday was highlighted by our Vision Breakfast and Builder Panel Luncheon. Both events drew a great deal of participation and interest from show floor attendees. And the two day show came to a close with the BIS After Party hosted by West Coast Drywall & Paint at the infamous Voodoo Lounge.
We wish to thank the support of the exhibitors, countless volunteers, BIS Committee members and BIA staff for making BIS that amazing show that it always is. As the market recovers we anticipate continued Building Industry Show growth as well so it’s not too early to mark your calendars for BIS this time next year. BIA extends our deepest gratitude to the endless generosity of all event sponsors, thank you! Thank you as well to our speakers for taking the time to impart your knowledge of the home building industry to our attendees. These amazing individuals and companies continue to contribute to the success of the Building Industry Show.
