CAM, HBA Present Great Lakes Design and Construction Expo 2020

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI — Construction Association of Michigan (CAM) and Home Builders Association of Southeastern Michigan (HBA) recently joined forces to present Michigan’s largest construction industry event, the Great Lakes Design and Construction EXPO 2020 (EXPO). This two-day, statewide event brought together residential and commercial designers, contractors, designers, suppliers and service providers, offering networking opportunities and educational workshops.

The EXPO, sponsored by Lake Michigan Credit Union and Wimsatt Building Materials, was held at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan. Over 2,000 industry professionals attended the event. Attendees had the opportunity to learn about innovations in technology, products, supplies and services from over 200 exhibitors. Industry-specific educational workshops and safety training were offered to maximize their skills, competency and professionalism.

In the past nine years, CAM and HBA have partnered to present a joint Mid-Year Economic Forecast that provides information for the members of both associations.

“The success of our partnership on the Mid-Year Economic Forecast led to our decision to bring together CAM’s Michigan Construction & Design Tradeshow and HBA’s Great Lakes Builders Show to create the EXPO,” said Kevin Koehler, President of CAM.

“While there are differences between those involved in residential construction and those involved in commercial construction, there are many areas where our interests intersect," said Michael Stoskopf, CEO of HBA. "By combining our efforts to present the new EXPO, we will be providing value and opportunity that exceeds the scope of what we have offered in the past.”

The EXPO also hosted CAM’s 134th Annual Meeting, the Home Builders Association of Michigan’s Board of Directors Meeting and an Economic Forecast Breakfast featuring keynote speaker Robert Dietz, Ph.D., Chief Economist for the National Association of Home Builders in Washington, D.C.
