Chief Architect User Breakfast at IBS tradeshow 2020

By: Ariana Beaudry

What better to raffle off than an advance in skill level? We raffled for the first time the opportunity to attend our annual Chief Academy training event.

Thank you to all that were able to visit the Chief Architect Booth at the International Builders’ Show (IBS) and Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Vegas. We had a great time being able to put faces to familiar names and introduce more professionals in the industry to Chief Architect Software. One of our favorite parts of the event each year is the User Breakfast that we host on Day 2 of the show. It’s here that our Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Scott Harris, CKBD, presents What’s New in the latest version of our software. In addition to showing off the new features, we also threw in a twist this year… not only did the attendees have a chance to win big at the casino, but for the first time in the history of this event, we raffled off a chance to win a ticket to our Chief Academy User Event, valued at $1,295, and Brian Farris of Farris Construction was ecstatic to win.
