Building Insider Magazine

About the Magazine

A New Name.

Starting with the first issue of 2015, the BIA’s magazine will now be called Building Insider. The new name reflects the wide variety of building-related professions of our members, as well as the inside look at homebuilding that our magazine provides. With its new all-inclusive name, the magazine will also be getting a new look.

An Extra Issue.

The magazine’s new extra issue will feature a wrap-up the BIA’s two signature events, the Parade of Homes and the Preview Party. We think you will agree, these two important events deserve the extra recognition. There will be limited advertising opportunities in this issue, so make sure you book your ad early.

A Larger Reach.

Building Insider will now be seen by more industry professionals. We are expanding the audience by mailing it to 500 top producing Realtors in the greater Columbus area.
