expo 2016 pony racesThe 14th annual EXPO was probably one of the most talked about the GHBA has ever held—and in a very good way! We had an impressive showing at the Sam Houston Race Park, sponsored by BMC. Check out all the EXPO photos on Facebook!

Throughout the day, nearly 500 builders and remodelers attended the CBC and RMC contract seminars sponsored by StrucSure Home Warranty and presented by James Rudnicki and Ian Faria. These new contracts reflect the most recent mandates and case law coming out of the Texas Legislative Session. This members-only benefit is a fantastic value and can save you thousands of dollars in legal fees.

There were numerous unique exhibitors, including the Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting/Custom Builders Council booth where visitors got their boots shined or receive a hand rolled cigar. Proceeds went to the CBC’s charity of choice, Casa de Esperanza.


“You guys did a phenomenal job on the EXPO! We landed a lot a of leads, met some key management of production builders, and made some new friends that will offer great networking opportunities. On behalf of Cast Fireplaces, we feel very privileged to be part of such an amazing organization. See you again at next year’s EXPO!” Sonora Storm, Cast Fireplaces, Inc.
Food and beverages were sponsored by Builders Post-Tension, Rooftec, and Western Pacific Building Materials.

The simulcast horse racing sponsored by Sherwin-Williams was a huge hit as well, with Alex Cheng with Tyron Homes, Tammy Sanchez with Lone Star, and Abner Burnitt with Bellaire Builders winning their individual races. A total of over $1,400 was awarded to these winners.
