Home Building Industry Events
HBACA offers an extensive roster of events and educational programs throughout the year to provide members with business development opportunities and ensure members are always up to speed on what is taking place within the home building industry.
HBACA Events Overview
Our annual tradeshow, the Southwest Builders Show, is the Valley’s only industry-exclusive show for residential construction and has become recognized as a premier event for Associate and Builder members. Associate members can create invaluable exposure and establish key contacts with hundreds of home builder staff who attend this one-day expo.
For Associate Members who want to become better acquainted with the Valley’s home builders, attending our monthly forum featuring two builders (one large and one small-volume volume) provides a great opportunity for business development, and a rare glimpse into a builder’s past, present and future. Builder members who are interested in speaking at this event may contact Lisa Rugloski.
Held annually in the fall, the HBACA’s annual Sticks & Bricks Tournament is one of the Association’s most popular events. Sticks & Bricks, takes place on two 18-hole courses at the Whirlwind Golf Club at Wild Horse Pass. A reception for all participants follows the morning tournament. With 288 players, plus sponsors, this is a premier event for business development in a fun environment.
The chief fundraiser each year for our Political Action Committee – the HBACA PAC - the Chairman’s Cup is hosted by the PAC to thank members of our PAC Chairman’s ($1,000) and President’s ($500) Clubs. Your contribution to the PAC is an investment in the future of home building, so we encourage all HBACA members to join us for this fun, yet important event.
Held in January, this annual luncheon is the year’s premier occasion to meet the leaders and principals of the home building industry, and to honor their commitment to this Association.
The Major Achievements in Merchandising Excellence Competition is held in the spring. This prestigious awards competition recognizes the exemplary efforts of builders and land developers; interior designers and architects; and sales managers and sales associates who make the home building industry in the Valley one of the nation’s leaders.
The HBACA regularly sponsors breakfast or luncheon programs featuring industry experts who provide members with updates/forecasts on the housing market, and trends within the housing industry.
HBACA members take a break from the Southwest Builders Show in October of each year for the Annual Housing Forecast Luncheon. Featuring industry experts, this is the Association’s biggest annual luncheon, and one of the HBACA’s top networking events.
The P.A.S.S. (Purchasing Agents, Suppliers and Subcontractors) breakfast takes place each year at the Southwest Builders Show. Commencing with a morning reception, followed by breakfast and a keynote speaker who is entertaining, motivational and/or educational, this annual event kicks off the show in style and affords HBACA members a unique opportunity for business development.
You work hard. You need a break. Go to a game, relax and have some fun! Each year the HBACA obtains tickets to one or two Diamondbacks games at a discounted rate. Seating is typically in the Coors Light Strike Zone, the perfect space for members to mix and mingle in a fun, casual setting.
