2025 Annual Products & Services EXPO will be held on February 5th, 2025!

Thank you for participating in our 2024 EXPO. We look forward to seeing everyone again in 2025!

– Mark Scherer and the Scherer Bros. Team

For over 53 years this has been the biggest show in our marketplace where you can meet current and new trade partners in one place…and having fun doing it. Besides networking with new contacts and catching up with old friends, you’ll get to see and compare the latest innovations, newest products, and most valuable services on the market that really can improve your bottom line.


2025 Expo will be held on February 5th!

Heritage Center of Brooklyn Center

6155 Earle Brown Dr, Brooklyn Center, MN 55430


Plenty of Networking: We had over 1,000 in attendance in 2024 (including vendors) from close to 400 companies.

All are welcome, both big and small. For safety reasons, no children are allowed. This event is for contractors only.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It, Here’s What A Few Of Our Attendees Have To Say

  • “Attending the EXPO show each year allows us to see all the newest products. It’s a great chance to talk and catch up with a lot of our vendors, and it gives us a chance to meet potential new vendors for various products we are looking for. By bringing some of our key employees, they get to know a lot of the people they talk to or email on a regular basis.”

    Ron Derrick
    President of Derrick Custom Homes
  • “The SBL Expo is a very intimate show compared to the others we are used to in the industry where the pace is quicker and there isn’t enough time to have productive conversations with current or prospective suppliers. SBL Expo not only gives us more time, but the vendors that participate are often more relevant to what we do as luxury home builders. The winter afternoon event is easier for me to schedule when each evening at home is loaded with family obligations.”

Here is What our Build Partners Have To Say

  • “SBL is a great partner of mine and the fact that they make getting my CE credits that much easier is a special bonus! I appreciate how SBL works hard to find industry experts to present the CE classes required. The SBL CE class is a great way to catch up with other professionals in the building industry.”

    JD Hanson
    President of Hanson Builders
  • “The gift of going to one place for both my MN and WI CE credits is fantastic. The instructors are very knowledgeable, and day is enjoyable. SB does all the heavy lifting and all we need to do is to show up.”
