About Meet The Builder
The Meet the Builder program brings together residential home builders with manufacturers in face-to-face meetings during a 1 ½ day event.
Debuting in May 2017 with a focus on the eastern half of the US, the program now includes builders in the entire US. Attended and supported by many top 200 builders, the program was deemed a huge success at the inaugural 2017 event by many of the industry’s most prominent builders and sponsors.
At Meet The Builder events, qualified residential home builders are fully hosted and receive roundtrip airfare, two nights at event hotel, all scheduled meals and entertainment, and the opportunity to bring an additional guest/spouse (must share same accommodations).
During the event, builders will meet with sponsoring manufacturers for 15 minute face-to-face meetings, allowing each to quickly choose mutually beneficial partnerships. 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 Meet The Builder programs are a great investment of our time and financial resources. We have attended 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 future events.
