The 2013 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show Heads to New Orleans

It’s where the Kitchen and Bath Industries’ best and brightest assemble to spot trends, take in product introductions, build connections, and find practical solutions that lead to tomorrow’s innovative designs and techniques. The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) will once again be the industry’s reliable annual resource for staying current, competitive and profitable. It is one of our favorite tradeshows of the year due to the high-level interfacing and relationships that are fostered on site.

Year after year, architects, builders, remodelers, designers, dealers, distributors, home centers, and others are presented with extensive show floors showcasing the latest products; offered an informative conference program; dynamic networking events; and the opportunity to learn from world-renowned industry speakers. Today, KBIS is where exhibitors come to reach the industry’s serious buyers, and where kitchen and bath professionals gain valuable insights needed to stay ahead of the curve.
