The 2011 International Builders’ Show is less than a month away, and there is something you need to remember: No matter how hard you try, you’ll never see every product on display. Why? Because next year’s show will include over 1,000 exhibitors occupying over 500,000 square feet of exhibition space, that’s why. For this reason, efficiency is important, and we can help.

We’ve sorted through the contenders and have come up with some of the hottest products among the many thousands that will be in Orlando, Fla. These products will include Kohler’s very modern Loure faucet collection and Panasonic’s significant expansion of its WhisperGreen line of bath fans. Propex will unveil the NapaWrap Coastal housewrap that is designed to withstand harsh weather, and Generac aims to make automatic standby power more affordable with its CorePower System.

Even though we have the inside track on the new stuff, we are limited in what we can show here. Still, these four pages should help you make some decisions about where to start when you get to the show.
