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 21 of the largest publicly and privately held homebuilders in the nation.
Although headlined as a Conference, this is in fact one of the largest Trade Shows for the residential building industry on the West Coast, 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 was open to anyone professionally involved in the building industry. Exhibitors and those attending included builders, developers, architects, 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.
