IBS 2016 Free Passes for Homebuilders


The 2016 International Builders’ Show is just around the corner, and you are invited! For your free passes to the exhibit floor, please request them here. We are excited to share the new modules and features we have added in 2015 to our software solutions for homebuilders.

As your plans for 2016 take shape, we would like to request a moment of your time. If you are attending the show, please request a meeting with us below. We will reach out to schedule your time and begin to plan our consultation and/or demonstration.

Do you feel that your existing software solution is helping or hindering the efficiency of your business? From back office operations to builders and trades in the field, software should never stand in the way. Good software propels your team forward.

If your plan for 2016 involves re-evaluating the software that powers your business, let’s talk.

“10 Social and Digital Marketing Trends Impacting Consumer Buying Behavior”

Understanding technology and consumer behavior trends is important to any company. The increase in consumer mobility, localization and social media has dramatically altered the marketing landscape and will impact the future of your business. This session will discuss new mobile, on-line, website and social trends that will change the way you market your homes.

“It’s Not Always Who You Know but What You Know”

Tips on Getting Builders’ Business. A builder panel program featuring: Marshal Gray, MI Homes; Ed Dion, Remodeling Contractor; John Gleeson, London Bay Homes; and Dave Hounihan, Neal Communities. Moderated by: John Wiseman, Core Construction. Open to all attendees.

“10 Things Your Lawyer Won’t Tell You (But Should)”

This one hour presentation discusses specific strategies construction business owners can implement to better manage outside legal counsel. Topics include questions to ask, and not ask, when interviewing attorneys, various means of attorney compensation and which one may be best for your situation, specific ways to reduce legal fees and costs, overcoming disputes with outside counsel, and transferring a file from one lawyer to a new lawyer. 10 Things Your Lawyer Won’t Tell You (But Should):

  1. I’m not really qualified to handle your case
  2. I’d prefer to be paid hourly, but…
  3. My young associate will do all the work
  4. My fees are negotiable
  5. So are my out-of-pocket costs
  6. You don’t need to understand my bills
  7. If you complain, I may reduce my bills
  8. I don’t have insurance
  9. I’m not your type
  10. I’m replaceable.


BONUS: Your Homebuilding Technology Partner

The Constellation Team in Booth 801 will be available to answer your questions about homebuilding software and technology, and discuss your organization’s needs and opportunities. We are a technology partner to some of the nation’s most progressive builders, and their questions and input impact our software development process daily.

PCBC 2014 kicks off one week from today, and there is plenty to be excited about. Education sessions, networking events, and curated exhibits will ensure that your visit to San Francisco is worth the investment. Here are our Top 5 Things to do at PCBC 2014:

1. The City.

Evolved from PCBC 2013′s The Village, The City is about enhancing your show experience. The show is rich in products and solutions, but also hopes to be more than just rows and aisles. Inside The City, you’ll find a mini-park, 11 storefront exhibitors, a recharging station for your devices, places to sit, trees, a deck, music, and a bar serving coffee in the morning and beer and wine in the afternoon.

2. The City.

San Francisco is alive. And like any living thing, it’s always evolving. The San Francisco of yesterday is gone by the time the morning fog rolls over—replaced by new and exciting possibilities.

3. Sheryl Connelly.

As the in-house futurist for Ford Motor Company, Sheryl Connelly has allowed Ford to stay way ahead of the curve and helped drive them straight into success. Connelly immerses herself in the ever-changing cultural ideas to determine what consumers might want to buy in the future. She dives into trends and brings incredible insight when she comes up for air.


The SPARKS Conference at PCBC 2014 is a two-day cross-disciplinary program full of ideas and people who will spark your creativity, innovation, and ingenuity. With over two-dozen sessions and access to 65 thought-leaders, SPARKS offers a blend of topics – not just homebuilding experts and best practices, but also new, unexpected, out-of-industry perspectives. Consumers want a fresh way of engaging with the marketplace. Performance-driven design and is literally reshaping our physical world. Urban gardening is turning unused community space into fruitful endeavours. Challenge yourself with SPARKS.

5. The Food.

San Francisco remains one of the top food destinations in the world. Forego the hotel restaurant and explore the city that I call home and all the fantastic food it has to offer. Our favourite is Scoma’s to watch the seals at Fisherman’s Wharf.


6. Software advice.
