You come to the IE3 Show because you want to improve your business and your life. Well, one lucky contractor is going to get more than he or she bargained for!

Four of the country's most profitable contractors -- our "Dream Team" of contractor makeover artists -- are going to conduct a top-to-bottom review of a contracting business, and you're going to get to see the results (and participate) during an unprecedented MainStage on February 14. Plus, we'll catch up the contractor who received the makeover in 2017, to learn about his progress he has made in the past year.

The Contractor Dream Team includes:


Bobby Ring, Meyer & Depew Co.

Ask any of the "legends" in the contracting industry (they'll all be at the IE3 Show, so you can actually ask them), and they'll tell you: the way you become great is you keep a close eye on other great contractors. At Industry Champions, our morning super-seminar on February 13, we've arranged for you to meet, listen to, and learn from some of the best contractors in the country. This one-of-a-kind program includes such contracting luminaries as:

  • 2018 Residential Contractor of the Year
  • 2018 Commercial Contractor of the Year
  • 2018 Skip Snyder Humanitarian Award Winner
  • 2018 ACCA/Federated Insurance SUPER-S.T.A.R.
  • And more!

You will not want to miss this energetic celebration of our industry's best, and your opportunity to discover the techniques being used by today's most successful contractors.
