Midwest Builders Show & Conference Educational Line Up Features New "Survival Guide"
The fifth annual Midwest Builders Show® and Conference is offering a timely new “Survival Guide” track for its 2007 show, “The Future is What You Make It.” The new track features sessions on several critical issues facing builders in a cooling market: understanding green building, moving existing inventory, providing superior customer service and managing change in a professional environment.
Produced by the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago (HBAGC), the conference will be held March 21-22, 2007, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill. The event brings together builders, developers, suppliers and distributors to demonstrate innovation, and to exchange ideas and information.
In addition to keynote addresses by Gianluigi Longinotti-Buitoni, former president and COO of Polo Europe, who will discuss the concept of DreamMarketing and futurist author Glen Hiemstra, the conference will feature more than 40 sessions in the areas of sales and marketing, product design and merchandising, business strategy and leadership, technology, customer service, land development, construction and a specific track pertinent to the small builder/remodelor. The popular Super Sales Rally featuring Frank Bucaro makes a return appearance for 2007 as well.
