About the AIBD

The American Institute of Building Design believes in the consumer’s right to choose the person they want to design their home. We support our belief by providing programs and resources to help the consumer make educated decisions and professionals practice at their peak. We are the way residential design is done.

The primary audience is a business owner, a manager or decision-maker, and others who provide services in the residential construction industry, such as engineers, builders, interior designers, and landscape designers. Other attendees include consultants, product manufacturers, software suppliers, and other service providers that support residential building design and construction.

Join us in a virtual show experience. Virtual trade shows are quickly becoming widely accepted as valid marketing tools, and their speed and interactivity have kept pace with typical Web applications. Just like traditional shows, AIBD virtual shows come with their benefits and challenges. We’re all learning together, but we’re convinced this is one way exhibiting will be done from this point forward.
