NVBIA Golf Tournament


Meet the Builder

Meet the Builder is a Members-Only event that is a fun and exciting way to establish new relationships and reconnect with home builders and remodelers.  Think of it as “speed-dating” with CEOs, CFOs, owners and purchasing managers from NVBIA’s national, regional, local and custom builders. Each builder has its own exhibit space at the event.  Associates will have five minutes of uninterrupted time to discuss their products and services with each builder.  It is a perfect opportunity for Associates to get in front of our Builder members’ decision makers in a single night.


Crab Feast

The Annual Crab Feast is NVBIA’s most popular summer event!  In addition to Maryland crabs, attendees can enjoy plenty of shrimp, hot dogs, hamburgers and all the fixins while networking with fellow NVBIA members and making new connections. We are excited to welcome the sound of the Anthony “Swamp Dog” Clark band.

A don’t miss evening to sample the creative chili creations of members that will dazzle you with their culinary skills. Who will take home the top prize for their chili? Not a chili fan? That’s not a problem. Food Trucks will be on site to satisfy other food cravings. And, of course, a selection of your favorite drinks will be on hand.


Parade of Homes

Northern Virginia’s largest open-house home tour is a two-day event, attracting thousands of visitors from the greater Washington Metropolitan and Northern Virginia areas.
