Held at our headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska, Buildertrend University is a two-day conference for homebuilders, remodelers and specialty contractors. Held once monthly, this event consists of in-depth education on our tech and best business practices. You’ll leave knowing how to better leverage our platform to scale your business.
