We recently hosted the inaugural AR Homes® Builder Summit event in Las Vegas, uniting builders, associates, and vendor partners from across the AR Homes® network. For decades, AR Homes® hosted separate events for its Building Company President and Franchisee meeting, Pride in Partnership event, and Top Club and Master Builder Club trips. However, in a significant shift, these gatherings were combined into one comprehensive event. This decision not only streamlined the schedule but also provided an opportunity for celebrating achievements, fostering greater collaboration and networking among peers. Additionally, this unified event was held alongside the International Builders’ Show.

The event agenda was full of opportunities for attendees to learn, network and celebrate their accomplishments. A summary of the agenda is below:

Welcome Reception & Registration 

The event kicked off with a glamorous Welcome Reception and Registration, complete with iconic showgirls, setting the tone for an exciting gathering in Las Vegas. During this event, attendees were encouraged to network as they looked forward to an exciting week ahead.

Building Company Presidents and Franchisee Meeting

Building Company Presidents and Franchisees were invited to their annual meeting hosted by AR Franchising, Inc., which featured educational panelist presentations led by the executive leadership team and engaging roundtable discussions on various key topics such as customer satisfaction, sales, design, construction, and business needs.

International Builders’ Show 

When attendees were not scheduled to be in an AR Homes® Builder Summit event or meeting, they were encouraged to spend time at the International Builders’ Show to explore the latest trends, learn about the housing industry, and visit vendor booths to learn more about their latest products.

Top Club and Master Builder Club Meeting 

Each Top Club and Master Builder Club winner was invited to take part in a meeting for their respective groups. During these meetings, participants got involved in roundtable discussions in which they were able to share their unique market challenges and best practices, learn from their peers and impact plans to drive customer satisfaction rates higher.

Awards Ceremony

The highlight of the event was the awards ceremony, where laughter and celebration filled the air as we honored the remarkable achievements and contributions of our building company associates and vendor partners.
