About PCBC

Dedicated to advancing the art, science and business of housing, PCBC is the largest homebuilding tradeshow representing the west coast region.

Launched in 1959 as a small educational conference at the Sheraton Palace Hotel in San Francisco, PCBC is now an annual two-day conference, product display and business exchange and is open to anyone professionally involved in the building industry, including builders, developers, architects, remodelers, designers, contractors, dealers/distributors and suppliers/manufacturers.

In the past, PCBC was an acronym for “Pacific Coast Builders Conference”.  Over time the name became an inaccurate reflection of the audience, as the show now draws attendees from all over the United States, Canada, Mexico and more than 25 other countries.  Today the show is known simply as PCBC.

PCBC alternates each year between San Francisco and San Diego and has been endorsed as the official show of Leading Builders of America (LBA), whose membership includes 20 of the largest publicly and privately held homebuilders in the nation

CBIA: PCBC's Sponsoring Organization

PCBC is sponsored by the California Building Industry Association (CBIA). A statewide trade association based in Sacramento, CBIA represents thousands of companies, including homebuilders, trade contractors, architects, engineers, designers, suppliers and other industry professionals. As the organization's learning laboratory, PCBC encourages new and informed perspective, an open minded attitude and unwavering curiosity amongst the people creating better communities.

PCBC is Endorsed by Leading Builders of America (LBA)

PCBC is the official annual event of the LBA, whose membership includes 20 of the largest publicly and privately held homebuilders in the nation. This ongoing partnership brings teams of national and regional buyers to attend the show, meet with PCBC exhibitors, and participate in exclusive buyer programs. LBA also collaborates with PCBC annually to develop high-level programming for LBA senior executives, including the prestigious, invitation-only Leader-to-Leader Forum. In 2013, LBA member companies sold over 132,000 new homes and generated more than $44 billion in revenue for the national economy. Learn more here.
