Preparations are underway at the Professional Builder Show Village for the International Builders Show at the West Concourse of the Orange County Convention Center, on Thursday, January 6, 2011. The International Builders Show returns to town after two years in Las Vegas. Thanks to the housing slump, it's a lot smaller now than it was when it was here for four years straight -- 55,000 expected versus 100,000-plus then -- but it's still Orlando's biggest convention, so it's a welcome sight for Orlando tourism.
