Designs of Distinction Awards - October 18th, 2018

KBIS 2018

For over 50 years, KBIS – The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show – had been the premier event for industry professionals. 2018 should be no exception, as the event unfolds in Orlando in what promises to be yet another spectacular event, to be held Tuesday through Thursday, January 9-11 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. As a respected forum showcasing the latest industry products, trends, and technologies, KBIS is a must-see event for everyone from aspiring professionals to well-established veterans.

This year will feature more than six hundred of the leading brands in the kitchen and bath industry – with more than a hundred first time participants. Those attending the event can not only check out the latest products and technology, but with two massive halls at the convention center dedicated to these companies, it gives industry professionals a unique opportunity to compare products side by side in order to best make their own choices, as well as getting information and answers directly from manufacturers.

A big aspect of KBIS over the years has been the opportunity to learn. This year, as in previous years, those opportunities are numerous and devoted to the concept of professional growth.  One highlight of this year’s event will be the 2018 “Voices From The Industry Conference,” where industry leaders will share their experience, knowledge and expertise in the areas of growing one’s business, kitchen and bath specialty training, design, management and customer service. (Those interested in the conference can learn more at [email protected].) In addition, interactive lab sessions – very popular at previous KBIS events – will return, providing hands-on learning experiences with industry leaders.

Needless to say, this year’s KBIS , as always, will provide a plethora of networking opportunities at all levels. Building professional relationships is critical to the business, and KBIS is definitely the place to make the right connections. In particular, be on the lookout for “The Bash” on Wednesday night, at Mango’s Tropical Café Orlando from 8:30pm to 1:30am, a not-to-be-missed experience. Tickets are just $35 per person for a priceless experience.

Floor hours for KBIS 2018 are 9:00am – 5:00pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. For more information and a comprehensive list of events, visit
