About Meet The Builder by ECBC
The East Coast Builders Conference (ECBC) exists to fill a gap for regional builders looking for an industry event focusing on the needs of builders from Texas to Illinois, east to Pennsylvania and south to Florida. ECBC’s Meet The Builder program is a natural extension of ECBC offerings that brings together residential home builders with manufacturers in face-to- face meetings during a two-day event. Debuting in May, 2017, the program was deemed a huge success by 21 of the industry’s most prominent builders and sponsors.
At Meet The Builder events, qualified residential home builders are fully hosted (attend at no cost to them) including travel expenses, two nights at event hotel, all scheduled meals and entertainment, and the opportunity to bring a spouse or guest (must share same accommodations).
During the event, builders will meet with sponsoring manufacturers for 15 minute face-to-face meeting, allowing each to quickly choose mutually beneficial partnerships. Spouses/guests are invited to all meals, receptions, and entertainment, as well as additional options such as spa treatments, tours, and private luncheons (to be determined depending on each area/hotel offering).
Sponsoring manufacturers have face-to-face meetings with every hosted builder, allowing sponsors to present new products and/or services, and for each to quickly choose mutually beneficial partnerships.
Participating in the 2017 ECBC Meet The Builder programs were a great investment of our time and financial resources. We have attend other events that are similar in design, however, Verne Packer’s team exceeded our expectations! The level of engagement from the builders that attended was incredible. It was worth the effort, and we look forward to participating in the 2018 events.
