Innovation Direct™ Looks Forward to February Visit to Kitchen and Bath Industry Show and International Builders Show…
Hello, Juan C. Blanco, Innovation Direct™’s Director of Product Licensing, here with an update on the February stop on our trade show itinerary, the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (“KBIS”). The 2014 edition of this renowned event promises to be bigger than ever, as this will mark the first year that the exhibit is co-located with the National Association of Home Builders’ International Builders Show. As per an official press release, both events will run separately but concurrently at the expansive Las Vegas Convention Center between February 4th and 6th.
The combination of both industry leading shows under one roof has led to the moniker of “Design and Construction Week 2014” being applied to the entire time frame that the events and their accompanying conferences and educational workshops will be in session. Overall, as per the official press release, “Design and Construction Week is expected to draw more than 75,000 specifiers, builders, dealers, and suppliers and 2000 exhibiting brands.” Additionally, 2014 also happens to mark the 50th anniversary of the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, and the show is considered the largest event in North America focused on the kitchen and bath segment, typically attracting more than 700 exhibitors. This particularly significant edition of the show is estimated to attract approximately 20,000 buyers and specifiers from more than 50 countries, as well as 300 members of the media. Attendees of KBIS annually include dealers, designers, architects, remodelers, wholesalers and custom builders.
As customary, Innovation Direct™ will walk the exhibit floor of both of these dynamic shows and attempt to make significant contacts with as many manufacturers and marketers willing to review new product ideas from our roster. Stay tuned to the Innovation Direct™ Blog for any and all future updates regarding what should be a highly productive and exciting fusion of two landmark events!
