Propane Fuels the 2004 International Builders’ Show


Las Vegas, NV (January 19, 2004) — Propane’s versatility, efficiency, and reliability will be highlighted at the 2004 International Builders’ Show (IBS) as it fuels four homes and the main stage at the Show Village, located adjacent to the main entrance.  This display village will be built with top-of-the-line appliances and open for touring every day of the IBS, being held January 19 – 22.

“The propane industry is excited to be a part of this year’s Show Village,” said Roy Willis, president of the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC).  “We have a lot to say this year and fueling the Village allows the propane industry to show builders and consumers the benefits and increased living options propane offers.”
