The HBACA Mini Grand Prix is FREE: Yes, you read that right there is no charge to enter the race this year! The 2016 event raised funds for the association’s 501(c)3 charitable arm Home Builders Care, but the HBACA decided free is better. This self-contained race event is designed to encourage networking among attendees and exhibitors. You will have the opportunity to build your own mini-brick car on the spot, and compete in this friendly competition. The race takes place following the Forecast Luncheon, but plan to come in the morning to build your car as supplies are limited!     

The race presents one HBACA member with a unique sponsorship opportunity allowing you and your pit crew (co-workers/staff) to spend the day interacting with builders and other attendees and directing the races. Your $5,000 promotional investment includes:  Five tickets to the Forecast Luncheon, logo on SWBS website, 1/4-page ad in the Exhibit Guide, logo included on printed invitation to builders, recognition as Race Sponsor on banner over raceway and five parking passes.

The P.A.S.S. Breakfast: The association is pleased to welcome Dr. Diane Hamilton to the business development event exclusive to HBACA members, the Purchasing Agents, Suppliers and Subcontractors (P.A.S.S.) Breakfast. Purchasing managers and other executives from the Valley’s leading builders will once again serve as “table hosts.” Dr. Hamilton is an award-winning speaker, nationally-syndicated radio host, author, and educator. Through her work as the MBA Program Chair at the Forbes School of Business and several other universities, she has taught more than 1000 business courses. Her presentation, “Embracing Multiple Generations in the Workplace,” will help participants learn about the important skills required to work together harmoniously while embracing individual differences.  

The Slab and Final PhAZ:  Sponsored by Southwest Gas and Arizona Wholesale, The Slab this year will feature a digital caricature artist who will be doing quick sketches of show attendees throughout the afternoon. As always, the Slab will also be the location for Final PhAZ, a late-afternoon VIP party for builders, exhibitors and sponsors. 
 
Booth Availability: The show floor has fewer than 20 booths remaining. Reserve your space today if you would like to be seen at the 2017 SWBS!
