Tracy Burleson Building with Natural Gas

Builder confidence in the single-family home market continues to rise for the fifth straight month. In September, it reached its highest level since June of 2006 and at the same time, housing starts increased in the single-family sector.

With these positive signs in the residential housing market, the American Gas Association (AGA) is preparing for the National Associations of Home Builders’ International Builders’ Show to be held January 22 – 24, 2013 in Las Vegas, NV. The International Builders’ Show is America’s largest annual residential housing construction trade event for home constructions products and services. In 2013, an estimated 50,000 home builders, remodelers, architects, developers, building material dealers and distributors will attend from across the country to learn about new products, new technologies and new marketing ideas.

Partnering with natural gas utilities, gas appliance manufacturers and the propane industry, AGA will have more than 2,500 square feet of display space and a new booth featuring the latest technologies in the gas industry. It is only 100 days from the start of the show, so make sure to make plans now to join us at this exciting event. For more information visit
