The 2018 Meet the Builder will be held at the Hilton Harrisburg on November 2nd. The event kicks off at 4:30 p.m. and runs until 6:00. The sponsorship fee is $1,500 and sponsors also receive acknowledgements at our board meeting and in our member communications. Promotional acknowledgements appear in our weekly newsletter, TradeSecrets – which is distributed to all PBA members plus news outlets, prospects and sponsors – as well as on our web site and in meeting promotions.

The event itself is a casual mixer for active builders and remodelers from across the state. We hold it in conjunction with our Fall Board of Directors Meeting to get involvement from our prominent members and to ensure diverse geographical representation. Full disclosure – we ply the attendees with free drinks in order to ensure good attendance and we strongly encourage all attendees to interact with each of the sponsors. Each sponsor is given a small table on which they can place their literature and/or signage. Typically, attendees will work their way around the room checking out the products or services each sponsor has on offer. I’ve attached a photo from a prior event just to give you an idea of how the members and sponsors interact.

Only national or major regional companies are invited to sponsor. We only allow one sponsor from each product or service line. Those who participate in one year’s event have first rights of refusal for the following year. Sponsors are invited to bring literature to hand out and are encouraged to have a couple of representatives in the room to meet and greet (and hopefully close some deals.)

Final enrollment ends on September 30.
