HBA of Central Mo produces and hosts public and member events. The primary objective of public events is to connect HBA members directly with a broad range of potential customers by mass marketing these events to the public. Through the Parade of Homes, and the HBA Home Show, the HBA brings qualified, potential customers directly to you. Member events are designed to provide business-to-business opportunities within the residential construction industries. In this context, you are able to reach out to other members and potential customers within the home building and remodeling profession. These events allow builders to meet with companies that can help them complete jobs. And they help associates promote products and services directly to home builders and remodelers.
