Design and construction professionals will be putting on their finest at the unmissable KBIS fair to be held over 19th-21st February in Las Vegas, United States. This year’s edition will bring together over 85,000 sector professionals with 600 exhibitors offering the latest products, trends and technologies developed in the industry. Compac too will not be missing out on this huge event, coming armed with a concept proposal we will be briefing on shortly.
Once again, the Kitchen & Bath Show (KBIS) will be representing the industry’s voice over the Pond and extending its over 50-year dominance in the design and construction sector.
This time around, visitors at the fair will get the chance to discover first-hand the latest trends on the market as well as make new contacts, exchange ideas with sector colleagues and, down the line, develop their business with all this information.
In addition to the designs on display, the professionals and general public who peruse the fair’s facilities will be able to get inspiration from the designers and creators set to take part in the Voices from the Industry Conference. Alongside this initiative, interactive labs will be running to put all this new knowledge into practice.
In a statement to Associated Press, Brian Pagel, vice-president of Emerald Expositions (the company organising the fair) explains “KBIS has seen constant annual growth since 2008 and we are extremely excited by the huge growth for the 2019 edition. KBIS is where collaborations and decisions are made between key industry figures”.
“The strong early numbers for KBIS show the remodelling sector remains strong, especially for kitchens and baths”, says Suzie Williford, executive vice-president and chief strategy office of NKBA, the National Kitchen and Bath Association, which is involved in producing the event.
In this sense, the likely high attendance at the KBIS fair in February will be a show of rude financial health in the sector. Attendees will be able to discover the latest ideas in an industry in full swing and be party to the major trends in the construction sector.
