The National Buyers Circle (NBC) connects top national manufacturers with executive purchasing professionals from America’s 20 largest homebuilding companies.
Now in its fifth year, NBC is unique to PCBC through our exclusive partnership with the Leading Builders of America. An invitation-only event, NBC takes place one day prior to the opening of PCBC. National buyers in attendance are given full access to PCBC and remain active on the exhibit floor during both days of the show.
Buying teams from 13 of the 20 member companies in the Leading Builders of America will participate and meet to identify new opportunities and solidify relationships.
"National Buyers Circle is a one-of-a-kind event in the industry considering the amount of big builders in one room, at the same time. It would take months or more than a year to meet with all of them individually given schedule coordination and travel."

As we head into our fifth year, we’re implementing some new criteria for participation from our manufacturers. Because the event has become so popular, we’re asking that:
- Participants must be a 2017 exhibitor
- Beginning at PCBC 2017, if a company has participated for three consecutive years, they'll be asked to “sit out” a year to allow other interested companies an opportunity. (But, companies who "sit out" may participate during the following year.)
- Requests from 2017 exhibitors who are new to NBC will be presented to the Key Buyers Advisory Group, who has approval over the participant list
For help comparing the benefits and differences between PCBC's two different buyers programs--the Key Buyers Club and the National Buyers Circle--download our Buyers Program Overview sheet, which outlines the benefits of each event.
