We kicked off the new year with a bang at Design & Construction Week in Las Vegas, one of the industry’s largest gatherings for home building, remodeling and design professionals and brands.
For 2016, we hosted booths at the International Builders’ Show (IBS), Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), and The International Surface Event (TISE), all of which buzzed with excitement as our team connected with thousands of pros: from those just getting started on Houzz who came seeking best practices, to Houzz power users who shared their inspiring success stories. Houzz experts offered free profile consultations, advising pros on how to maximize their presence on Houzz and take their marketing to the next level with our Pro+ advertising program. IBS also provided the ideal platform for Houzz to launch our strategic alliance with the NAHB, helping builders and remodelers around the country benefit from Houzz technology and marketing tools.
During our in-booth presentations, we also shared the latest industry data and trends from our Houzz research, including our 2016 State of the Industry. As part of that report, we’re thrilled to announce that 2015 was a year of revenue growth for nearly three-quarters of residential businesses on Houzz, and the majority expect even more growth in revenue and profit in 2016.
We were delighted to hear from many pros at the shows that Houzz has played a role in this growth. We look forward to supporting our pros in the coming year as we continue to build Houzz into an essential resource for the home improvement community.
