My, how things have changed.

The last time the International Builders’ Show (IBS) was in Las Vegas it seemed like the economic recession and housing bust would never end.

But now, three years later, things are looking up and it’s in this climate that we head back to Sin City in January. Product manufacturers are stepping up: Leviton will introduce a receptacle that includes two USB ports; Danze will launch a low-flow showerhead with five settings; and Lemieux Doors will offer solid wood doors that have undergone a heating process that eliminates wood’s tendency to rot.

Turn the page for a sneak peek at other exciting new product introductions that will take place at IBS.
