PATH MAKES A SPLASH AT IBS 2004
At the 2004 International Builders' Show in Las Vegas, PATH provided builders with a wealth of resources to help build better homes. Through hands-on technology displays, demonstrations and publication dissemination, PATH introduced more than 1,000 booth visitors to the many benefits of PATH-profiled technologies.
A new exhibit booth illustrated a range of advanced technologies and practices from passive solar design to insulated concrete forms. Visitors could see and touch a tankless water heater, a plastic plumbing manifold, radiant barrier, air admittance vents, a structural insulated panel, bamboo flooring, fiber cement siding and many other technologies.
Exhibiting at IBS this year as a participant in the Federal Commons-a pavilion with representation from Federal programs such as ENERGY STAR®, Building America, and others-PATH attracted industry professionals interested in the latest publications and a new CD-ROM featuring short videos on building high quality, affordable homes. The CD also includes detailed profiles of the PATH Top Ten Technologies for 2004 and a tutorial on the PATH Web site.
PATH conference sessions at IBS included presentations on quality certification programs, selling innovation to builders and practical innovation.
