We are connected both on the floor and off, monitoring the social media conversations and anything that goes down here at the show. It didn't take long for our first treat: 
BUILDER just got an exclusive interview with MLB Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. Stay tuned for video and more! #IBSVegasbuilderonline
Cal Ripken, Jr. stopped by IBS to talk about his latest contract signing and talked details with BUILDER Magazine. It wasn't an MLB team that picked him up, but NewDay USA. Ripken is joining the mortgage company as their spokesperson for their philanthropic activities and career development. 
Just chillin with the Iron Man in Vegas. Cal Ripken Jr refused to show the arc reactor in his chest or the suit. #lame http://pic.twitter.com/9juiGlv0not telling
Products are on the radar here at IBS. From home automation to extra-strength blenders, there is something for everyone on the floor.
