The PCBC Conference is our largest, most comprehensive educational offering. Two days and over 45 educational sessions spanning a variety of topics, the PCBC Conference is designed to allow ease of movement between sessions and across disciplines. Programming is structured for maximum flexibility so you’re not locked into one subject track - you choose the sessions you want to attend.
Dedicated to advancing the art, science and business of housing, PCBC is the largest homebuilding tradeshow representing the west coast region.
In the past, PCBC was an acronym for “Pacific Coast Builders Conference”. Over time the name became an inaccurate reflection of the audience, as the show now draws attendees from all over the United States, Canada, Mexico and more than 25 other countries. Today the show is known simply as PCBC.
PCBC alternates each year between San Francisco and San Diego and has been endorsed as the official show of Leading Builders of America (LBA), whose membership includes 20 of the largest publicly and privately held homebuilders in the nation.
An extensive marketplace showcasing the latest innovations in homebuilding product and service solutions, PCBC's exhibit floor also hosts annual features such as model show homes and specialty pavilions. Our tradeshow floor is vibrant, dynamic, thoughtfully curated, and strategically engineered to drive value for our exhibitors and provide better ways for buyers to discover the latest products in housing.
No other event in the homebuilding industry draws more influential builders, provides more opportunity for quality connection, engagement and dialogue, or brings together richer intersections of capital, whether human, intellectual or financial.
Through high-level educational conferences, exclusive networking venues, a curated exhibit floor, and unique programs designed to connect buyers and sellers, PCBC provides a forum for members of the homebuilding industry and their manufacturing partners to productively engage.
THE DECISION-MAKERS IN HOMEBUILDING ARE AT PCBC
