The 21st Century Building Expo & Conference is celebrating 15 years! In that time, home builders have reached new heights and made the American Dream possible for a new generation. Home builders have also had to dig in and pull through tough economic times. Looking back, there’s an important lesson: You never know what the future holds. 

That’s why this year’s event is dedicated to helping builders, remodelers, tradespeople, real estate agents and others future-proof their businesses. Join us at the Charlotte Convention Center October 11-13, 2017 for one of our biggest shows yet!
