The HBADOC Builder Expo is intended to be an educational networking event where Builders & Associate Members can connect to encourage business. Associate vendors showcase new products/services, offer special deals to Builder attendees and get to know your Builder members. This year, the theme is an Indoor Tailgate Party - use the theme to make your booth inviting and fun.

RULES & REGS: I/We agree to abide by the rules and regulations (see below) made by the Home Builders Association of Durham, Orange, & Chatham Counties (HBADOC), and the facility in which the event is being held.
BUILDER INCENTIVE: In order to encourage MORE builders to attend and visit your booth, we suggest you offer special incentives/discounts or hand out coupons to builders that visit your booth. We also recommend you provide a door prize ($25 value). The HBA will collect business cards at registration and draw all winners from that pool of cards. The day after the event, the HBA will send you a list of Builder attendees for your follow-up.
We will also have a Tailgate Bingo Card for Builders. Each booth will have a space on an equal number of cards. Builders will get a Bingo card upon entry to the expo and visit booths to get Bingo. Once they do, they turn their card in at a designated area for a chance to win some great Tailgating Door Prizes! Builders must be present to win a prize - drawings will begin at 6:30 pm.
