“Building with the Stars” at NAHB’s International Builders’ Show

January 10, 2012

international builders showIn addition to the more than 800 exhibits, the 2012 International Builders’ Show will feature Iraq war veteran and “Dancing with the Stars” sensation J.R. Martinez.

Martinez will talk about his work with Operation Finally Home, a charitable organization providing wounded veterans with new homes.

As a veteran who returned home from duty injured, Operation Finally Home is close to Martinez’ heart. After the left front tire of his combat vehicle hit a land mine, Martinez suffered from burns on 40 percent of his body. After recovery, Martinez went on to become an actor and motivational speaker. He then enjoyed further captivating America with his incredible performance on “Dancing with the Stars.”

IBS attendees will have the opportunity to hear Martinez speak about consumer preferences, green building trends, entertainment and other special attractions. He will also attend the event to help raise awareness for Operation Finally Home at the organization’s booth as well as the NAHB Building Systems Councils booth. Most recently, BSC has partnered with Operation Finally Home to build a new home for an injured U.S. Marine staff sergeant, his wife and five children near Camp Lejeune.

If you’re looking to build Chicago new homes, the International Builders’ Show is the largest light construction exposition in the world and will gather 50,000 home builders, remodelers, developers, architects and suppliers this year. The event takes place Feb. 8 -11 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
