Celebrating its 40th Anniversary of being the original regional trade show, the Southeast Building Conference (SEBC) was held on August 16-17, 2018 in Kissimmee, Florida and continues to be the place to grow the building industry.

“We are proud to have celebrated this milestone with a sold-out show,” says Drew Smith, SEBC Committee Chairman and Chief Operating Officer of Two Trails Sustainable Building Consultants, Florida. “It’s amazing to know that what started as an idea over 40 years ago, has grown to become one of the most sought after industry events in the Southeast.”
