Schaffer Associates to Attend Design & Construction Week 2017

Schaffer Associates to Attend Design & Construction Week 2017

The New Year will get off to a quick start for Schaffer Associates as we send several senior team members to the Fourth Annual Design & Construction Week, which includes both NAHB’s International Builders’ Show (IBS) and NKBA’s Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), in Orlando next month.  Last year’s combined Shows in Las Vegas were some of the most well-attended in recent history, and the Orlando event is shaping up to be just as successful.

Design & Construction Week provides the perfect opportunity to reflect on 2016 and to look ahead to the next twelve months.  Our industry is capping off a year filled with opportunities and successes, as well as challenges and failures.  We have all grappled with changing economic factors, market uncertainty, government interference, and a host of other issues.  Through it all, however, the industry has maintained solid growth that will continue as long as companies are able to find and recruit those rare, talented, and qualified individuals to fill senior leadership roles.

While IBS and KBIS showcase the innovation, ingenuity, and creativity that drive our industry, they also highlight the need for top-level leadership in our competitive and growing sector.  As the industry’s trusted name in executive search, our Team is eager to connect with you during Design & Construction Week in Orlando to discuss your hiring needs and put your company on a path to success in 2017.  Email one of our professionals attending IBS/KBIS or call us today to set up a conversation in Orlando.  We’ll see you there!
