The National Journal, along with sponsorship from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and in partnership with Vegas PBS, will convene a 2016 presidential candidate forum during Design & Construction Week in Las Vegas in January. Design & Construction week includes the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), StonExpo, TileExpo, the International Builders Show (IBS) and Surfaces. The forum titled, “Building Opportunity: Solutions for the American Dream,” will give the candidates the opportunity to address the issues affecting the country in front of the largest annual gathering of housing industry professionals. The candidates are invited to discuss their vision for taking on America’s domestic, economic and foreign policy issues. The forum will be co-moderated by Atlantic Media Editorial Director Ronald Brownstein and Jon Ralston, host of Vegas PBS’s “Ralston Live.” The event will be held at the Westgate Hotel, Paradise Event Center, in Las Vegas on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2016, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. PT (8:30 – 10:30 p.m. ET). A full agenda will be released in the coming months.
