Speed Networking

May 31, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Associates: Connect with Builders

One of the most productive events of the entire year, Speed Networking is back – but with a twist!

Associate members who participate, have the opportunity to meet with custom builders, volume builders or BOTH – all in one day! We will host this popular event in our ballroom with a morning session, followed by lunch and the afternoon session.

Call Pam Gilmour, Business Development Director at (512) 982-9187 to reserve your spot!

This is the one event of the year that you are guaranteed to get dedicated face time with builder representatives. Our goal is to keep the builder/associate member ratio even in order to maximize your time and your investment, with a maximum of 20 associate tables per session. Act fast, because there is a wait list of associates every year!

A limited number of HBA Associate members will have the opportunity to spend 5-7 minutes with each participating builder — offering a unique opportunity to discuss their business needs and educate them about the value of your business’ products and services.

  • Limited to (20) Associate HBA Members per session
  • Exclusively for HBA members
  • Approximately 5-7 minutes with each Builder
  • $1,000 Vendor Partnership for one session or $1,500 for both; PLUS $50 gift card per session for Builder Drawing

Please note: no more than two Vendor Partners can be in the same product or service category per session

  • Receive a $50 “Thank You” Gift Card
  • Exclusively for HBA members
  • Approximately 5-7 minutes with each Vendor Partner
  • BUILDERS MAY SIGN UP by calling Lucas Schwind at (512) 861-2089

“I had the opportunity to participate is the first annual Speed Networking event at the HBA. It was fun, informative and most of all productive! I would highly recommend participation to my fellow builder members and would think this would be a ‘can’t afford not to participate’ event for our vendor/supplier members.”  – Ray Tonjes, Owner Ray Tonjes Builder, Inc.

Note: Lunch & Education Program Included (Noon – 1:30 p.m.)

Class Instructor: Bill O’ Connor, Stellar AV

As with other rough-in trades (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing), electronic systems should be planned for well in advance of construction and documented at the construction drawing phase of design. This course describes the processes used by professionals in the project planning, design, and installation phases of electronic systems.

Participants will be able to identify different types of residential systems and the unique impact of each on specific design considerations, such as space, framing, electrical, and ventilation requirements. This course will also help attendees identify and analyze the benefits of working with trained electronic systems professionals.
