Sure, it’s still January—cold, dark and snowy. Followed by more cold, dark and snowy. Nobody knows that better than us here in the Northland. But this week, editor-in-chief Rob Johnstone and I are shedding the parkas and mukluks and heading to sunny Las Vegas for the 2010 International Builder’s Show (IBS).
IBS is the largest annual building industry tradeshow in the country! That’s where we’ll find all the big names in home improvement—and plenty of woodworking suppliers, too—showing their latest and greatest goodies for the new year. But, even though you probably won’t be there thawing out with us, you can grab hold of our cyber press passes and come along anyway!
Just as we did last year, we’ll hit Sin City’s convention center hard, with plenty of video interviews in the booths plus other blog coverage from the tradeshow floor.
Follow our IBS escapades on Twitter, Facebook and, of course, this blog! Check back often, as we’ll be uploading new content throughout each day.
Let’s take a break from winter and let IBS get us thinking about warmer weather and all of the woodworking that goes with it.
Time to get packed and get outta Dodge!
Catch you from IBS,
Chris Marshall, Field Editor
