The 66th Annual Atlantic Builders Convention (ABC) was a tremendous success with nearly 400 exhibitors and thousands of attendees. ABC hosted numerous special guests including Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno, Senator Jennifer Beck, Senator Jim Whelan, Senator Dawn Addiego, Assemblyman Louis Greenwald, Assemblyman Sam Fiocchi, Commissioner Charles Richman of the NJ Department of Community Affairs and many more. Exhibitors reported a renewed excitement on the show floor and over 100 have already reserved booths for next year.
ABC featured numerous events that entertained attendees and provided tremendous networking opportunities. There was something for everyone at ABC – our new President George Vallone even played drums at the President’s Reception.
The Convention was also successful in highlighting the benefits of membership in NJBA, the local associations and NAHB through our NJBA Business Center booth and the Meet NJBA event. The BPAC thermometer was on site and we were able to reach our BPAC fundraising goal of $35,000 in just two days!
ABC closed with the Sales and Marketing Awards (SAM) event that was a tremendous success and featured an elegant new venue.
