Some questions you might be asking are who is the HBIA, why do they put on a Home Show and what do they accomplish. The HBIA is a group of Helena’s finest businesses who work together to provide a healthy building industry for the community. The purpose of their association is to elevate the construction environment in which it operates. With 185 members the HBIA looks out for the interest of thousands of employees these businesses employ by civic involvement, advocacy, and education opportunities. As part of a three-tier membership federation of national, state and local associations the HBIA is a strong advocate for the local home building industry. By organizing an excellent Home Show and Lifestyle Expo the HBIA hopes to create and grow opportunities for many of Helena’s businesses by connecting them with the customers they seek.

When you come to the Home Show on March 17th and 18th be sure to stop by the HBIA Booth near the entrance where you can connect with the new HBIA Executive Officer Donna Durckel and members to learn more about the association. Admission is $5.00 at the entrance.
