    BIASC's 2016 Building Industry Show Adds New Education Aspect see more

    RIVERSIDE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This year the Building Industry Association of Southern California, Inc.'s (BIASC) Building Industry Show (BIS) is planning a new format by engaging attendees with informative discussions. The show is evolving to do more than provide a place for building industry professionals to catch up with colleagues and discuss new job prospects.


    What's different about this year's Building Industry Show is that BIASC is addressing a broad cross section of key issues faced by industry professionals.


    The show, taking place on Wednesday, November 9th and Thursday, November 10th, 2016 at the Riverside Convention Center, is "Starting the Conversation" by adding insightful Pop-Up Education presentations that cover a range of topics from discussions of how mobile apps are transforming home building; advanced framing techniques; CEU workshops; design trends for 2017; to discussions about the skilled labor shortage that the show will be addressing during its Skilled Labor Brain Trust, which will connect the employers with the educators of potential employees among many other topics.


    BIS, which is now in its 27th year, will still feature its popular "Meet the Builder" event for BIASC members, its annual pub crawl, and a keynote session that will be taking place during lunch on Thursday with speaker, Tim Kane, President of MBK Homes.


    BIASC's annual industry show remains the only event in Southern California at such a large scale that provides a fresh and exciting trade show for a diverse group of industry related companies and individuals to promote relationships, tackle current issues, and provide networking opportunities. The show's ultimate goal this year is to give attendees a wealth of information in just the right portions to keep the conversation about today's industry and the future of the building industry and stimulate dialogue with advice from informed experts and responses to new products.
