BINGHAM FARMS, Michigan – July 8, 2019 – Construction Association of Michigan (CAM) and Home Builders Association of Southeastern Michigan (HBA) have joined forces to present Michigan’s largest construction industry event, the Great Lakes Design and Construction EXPO 2020 (EXPO). This two-day statewide event will bring together residential
and commercial designers, contractors, suppliers and service providers, offering networking opportunities and educational workshops designed to support the continued success of Michigan’s building industry.
The EXPO will be held on February 12 and February 13, 2020 at the Suburban Collection Showplace, 46100 Grand River Avenue in Novi, Michigan. Over 1,000 industry professionals are expected to attend. They will have the opportunity to learn about innovations in technology, products, supplies and services from over 150 exhibitors. Industry specific educational workshops and safety training will be offered, as well, to maximize their skills, competency and professionalism.
During each of the past nine years, CAM and HBA have partnered to present a joint Mid-Year Economic Forecast that provides valuable information for the members of both associations. “The success of our partnership on the Mid-Year Economic Forecast led to our decision to bring together CAM’s Michigan Construction & Design Tradeshow and HBA’s Great Lakes Builders Show to create the EXPO,” said Kevin Koehler, president of CAM.
Michael Stoskopf, CEO of HBA agrees and added, “While there are differences between those involved in residential construction and those involved in commercial construction, there are many areas where our interests intersect. By combining our efforts to present the new EXPO, we will be providing value and opportunity that exceeds the scope of what
we have offered in the past.”
The EXPO will also host CAM’s 134th Annual Meeting, the Home Builders Association of Michigan’s Board of Directors
Meeting and an Economic Forecast Breakfast featuring keynote speaker Robert Dietz, Chief Economist for the National
Association of Home Builders in Washington, DC.
There is no charge to attend the EXPO and visit the exhibit area from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on February 12 and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on February 13. There will be fees for some of the additional meetings and workshops featured during the EXPO. Credentials will be mailed to those who register before January 31, 2020. After that date, on site registration will be available.
