PCBC 2018 Adds Specialized Programming to Engage Growing Remodeling Segment

PCBC Registration for all attendees opens February 27, 2018

SACRAMENTO, CA—February 14, 2018 —PCBC 2018, the West’s premier housing event, will launch robust programming to meet the professional needs of the growing remodeler industry segment as registration opens late February.

Homeowner expenditures on improvements and repairs are projected to rise 7.5% in 2018 from last year to approach $340 billion, according to the Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) released by the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University. 

To support this important community of builders, professional remodelers from around the country are invited to participate in the new Remodelers Leadership Forum, a two-day educational event connecting remodeling professionals with the business strategies and critical metrics used by the most successful remodelers in the country. The Forum is dedicated to providing remodelers with the tools and resources they need to grow their businesses—the newest trends, tips and techniques in the renovation and remodeling space. 

“Homeowners are employing remodeling contractors to make residential properties more comfortable, make energy saving improvements or to extend their homes to accommodate growing families,” said Linda Baysari, Senior Vice President, Meetings & Conventions. “Remodelers are an essential segment to the PCBC attendance. They bring vital experience to share with the community and will benefit from interacting with leading remodeling firms for unparalleled networking, results-oriented education and an exhibit floor showcasing more than 350 leading manufacturers and suppliers.” 

The expanded exhibit floor will give the remodeler community access to residential building products and services, giving them new ideas and products to immediately use in their business.
Bringing together remodeling professionals with the larger home builder community stimulates an important exchange of ideas, peer-to–peer learning and network building, which provides a unique opportunity to gather insights and inspiration, vital to the growth of the industry. These connections occur at celebrated marquee events like the Gold Nugget Awards and Hall of Fame Gala and in educational sessions that create organic networking environments..

All segments of the housing industry are encouraged to make plans to attend when registration opens on February 27. No other event in the West draws more influential builders, provides more opportunity for quality connection, engagement and dialogue, or brings together richer intersections of capital, whether human, intellectual or financial. Through high-level educational conferences, exclusive networking venues, a curated exhibit floor, and unique programs designed to connect buyers and sellers, PCBC provides a forum for members of the industry and their manufacturing partners to productively engage.
