Michael Eisner, who served as the chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Co. for 21 years, will serve as the keynote speaker for the 2013 NAHB International Builders Show® (IBS) to be held January 22-24 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Drawing from his experience as both a Fortune 500 CEO and an entrepreneur, his remarks will motivate corporate innovation and teamwork, according to show organizers.
Closing out the opening ceremonies will be a performance by famed political satire group, the Capitol Steps.
