Nearly four out of five American households believe the nation is dealing with a housing affordability crisis, according to a recent nationwide survey conducted on behalf of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Building industry professionals looking to find solutions to this growing problem can attend the inaugural “Innovative Housing Showcase,” June 1-5, 2019, in Washington, D.C.
Co-hosted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the NAHB, the Innovative Housing Showcase is a five-day event featuring new building technologies and housing solutions that are making housing more affordable for American families and homes more resilient during natural disasters.
The Showcase will include panel discussions, on-stage interviews, and demonstrations with exhibitors, lawmakers, entrepreneurs, and leaders in the housing industry. In addition, there will be more than a dozen exhibitors displaying innovative building technologies that address affordability and resiliency.
More than 2,500 attendees are expected, including policymakers, housing industry leaders and media representatives. The Showcase will be open to the public with free admission.
In the midst of today’s affordable housing crunch, Whirlpool Corporation is proud to support the Innovative Housing Showcase and address affordable housing challenges that affect builders and consumers across the country.
