Michael Eisner Kicks Off IBS

November 28, 2012

Entertainment industry leader Michael Eisner has been announced as the keynote speaker for the 2013 NAHB International Builders Show (IBS). The show, held January 22-24, 2013, at the Las Vegas Convention Center will host professionals representing all facets of the housing industry from around the world. Eisner will address attendees on the 22nd, during the opening ceremonies.

"The opening ceremonies always provides an impressive lineup of speakers and entertainment, and this year is no exception," said Barry Rutenberg, NAHB chairman, a home builder from Gainesville, FL. “We look forward to hearing the inspirational words of former Disney leader Michael Eisner, followed by a comedic performance of the Capitol Steps."

Eisner, who served as the chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company for 21 years, is recognized for having revitalized and reinvented the company into a full-spectrum entertainment enterprise. Under his leadership, the company began a continuing series of growth strategies that resulted in its annual revenues rising from $1.7 billion to more than $30 billion.

Closing out the opening ceremonies will be a performance by political satire group, the Capitol Steps. Created in December 1981, the Steps began as a group of senate staffers who used the headlines of the day to create song parodies and skits that conveyed their unique brand of satirical humor.

The IBS opening ceremonies is open to all registered attendees. Doors open at 7 am, and limited general seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For details, click here.
