JLC • NEW ENGLAND UPDATE • JULY 1996 CBTC '96: Heard at the Show This past February, more than 4,000 builders and remodelers braved blizzard conditions to attend our 1996 Construction Business & Technology Conference (CBTC) in Marlborough, Mass. Those who made the trip were treated to more than 50 business and technical seminars, as well as a 50,000-square-foot Product Expo. New at CBTC '96 were energy and safety resource rooms, a popular hands-on computer lab, and two live technical workshops presented and videotaped on the Expo floor. Next year's conference is planned for Feb. 28 through Mar. 2 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, R.I.; a western region show is also scheduled for Sept. 26 to 28, 1997 at
