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. Eisner will address attendees on January 22, during the IBS Opening Ceremonies.

Under his leadership, Walt Disney began implementation of a continuing series of creative growth strategies that resulted in its annual revenues rising from $1.7 billion to more than $30 billion. Eisner continues to be an entertainment innovator to this day. His investment company Tornante launched Vuguru, a studio producing original programming for the Internet, portable media devices and cell phones.

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.

The IBS Opening Ceremonies is open to all registered attendees. Doors open at 7:00 a.m. and limited general seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
