At the Building Industry Association of Hawaii (BIA-Hawaii), we are very committed to our mission to “Enhance the quality of life for the people of Hawaii.” Our members are dedicated professionals representing developers, general contractors, specialty contractors, suppliers and associates. The 19th annual BIA Home Building & Remodeling Show, also known as the “Big Show,” will be held Jan. 25-27, 2013 at Neal Blaisdell Exhibition Hall.

This showcase of building industry experts and companies will offer consumers thousands of new products, services, building trends and remodeling techniques. It is also a very unique opportunity to ask questions, gather information and establish connections with the owners and senior managers of Hawaii’s top contractors and suppliers.


The “Big Show” will offer homeowners free consultations and special event seminars to provide additional resources for remodeling and new-home construction projects. Conveniently located under one roof, consumers will also discover the latest technological advances in building materials, appliances, construction innovations, architecture and interior design.

The extended deadline for exhibitor entrants for Hawaii’s premier building industry event is Nov. 13. All interested exhibitors may call Clarice Watanabe at 629-7503, or email for additional information.

Karen Nakamura is executive vice president/CEO of the Building Industry Association of Hawaii.
