Jake Rubin Residential Construction Industry Hears About the Benefits of Natural Gas

If the attitude of those visiting the American Gas Association booth at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) is indicative of the industry, 2012 should be a positive growth year for new construction. IBS is the largest national trade event for the residential construction industry. This year the show attracted more than 51,000 constructions professionals and 900 exhibitors.

AGA’s Director, Communications Tracey Burleson attended the conference in Orlando, FL.  AGA’s exhibit drew thousands of visitors to hear about the benefits of natural gas and examine the latest products from more than 20 manufacturers including Rinnai, Lennox, BSH Home Appliances, and R.H. Peterson.  They also got a chance to see a natural gas Honda Civic and filling station.

The AGA has exhibited at IBS for 66 years. Employees from utility companies across the country represented the industry to construction professionals of all types and sizes interested in building with natural gas and natural gas appliances.

Mark your calendar for next year’s IBS in Las Vegas January 22 – 24.
