Things have been pretty busy for us at Contrado lately, gearing up the past few months for some of our favorite annual events. Here’s a quick summary of what’s been happening, who was involved, and what we learned from these fun industry happenings.

Southwest Builders Show

Each year we look forward to SWBS as a great event to reconnect with local industry folk in a fun, social, and supportive environment. It’s a great place for local vendors to showcase their new products, technologies, and businesses themselves. Social in nature, but an opportunity to networking with local partners, we have been the recipients and the givers of support from local vendors and builders alike from around the Valley.

We had a booth in a prime spot next to the putting green, showcasing our Interactive Floor Plans, our interactive Customer Discovery Centers, as well as Aterra’s Design Tool.This year’s Southwest Builders Show itself had 20% more vendors than last year’s – new vendors being one of many good indications that the local homebuilding industry in Phoenix and Arizona is improving. The Forecast Luncheon was informative and positive – most of the industry experts outlining the signs of a market rebound for our industry. A strong comeback and a bright forecast definitely set the mood for a great day in Downtown Phoenix.

Builder MT

Held by our Alliance Partners Sales Simplicity (CRM) and BuilderMT (operational system), this year’s event in Denver gained momentum and doubled its participants – from 50 last year to over 110 this year. It continues to be a great place where builders nationwide can come to learn about and test the latest software updates from these companies. Among the events were showcases, trainings, future development demonstrations, and a suggestions portion from their current client base. Very technology-based, so we felt right at home!

We showcased our Interactive Floor Plans, our interactive Customer Discovery Centers, our Design Tool & Aterra Designs Kiosk, as well as our Interactive Model with Toll Brothers.

Hyphen Solutions

A new event for Contrado, this was a quick trip to Vegas for an opportunity for our company to provide a special presentation to an exclusive crowd in the homebuilding industry. Top builders and their information technology representatives came to learn about the different cutting edge technologies available to home builders today – and we were honored and excited to be a part of this powerful technology conference sponsored by Hyphen Solutions. The event centered around the technology supply chain management in our industry – highlighting interactive technology as the epicenter of it all. This change in our industry – interactive technology & integration becoming a mainstream standard – is what we have been looking forward to for years.
Our special presentation featured a step-by-step process of our enhanced home-buyer experience that showcases our Interactive Floor Plans, our interactive Customer Discovery Centers, our Aterra Designs Kiosk & Design Tool, as well as our Interactive Model with Toll Brothers.
