The best brands in kitchen and bath will come together to showcase their latest designs January 20-22 at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS). Innovative products, designs, concepts and programs will debut. KBIS is pleased to again honor the displays via the KBIS 2015 Innovation Booth Awards.
“We’re raising the bar on the KBIS Innovation Booth Awards for 2015,” says Brian Pagel, VP Kitchen & Bath Group, Emerald Expositions. “With the launch of KBISNeXT™, we’re pushing the envelope of what’s new and next in all things design. Part of what makes KBIS ‘the’ place to be in January are all the innovative designs and displays in the North and South Halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center.”
Exhibitors are invited to enter the competition at www.kbisinnovation.com. There is no cost to enter. Entries will have their entire booth judged throughout the show, by a juried panel of representatives from the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), KBIS and elite professionals in the kitchen, bath and display design industry segments, including Modenus BlogTour Las Vegas participants. Booths will be judged on: WOW Factor, Messaging, Education, Engagement and “The Unexpected & Unprecedented”.
Awards will be given for First, Second and Third Place. Winners will receive a special award, presented at the announcement on Center Stage in the NKBA Booth on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 at 11:00AM at the NKBA Center Stage in conjunction with the Best of KBIS Award announcements. All winners will also receive special post-show promotional benefits on kbis.com and other KBIS digital media platforms.
New for the 2015 Innovation Booth Awards is the opportunity to hear from the best in the space and booth design business. As we lead up to the show, exhibitors will be able to learn about the most successful, effective and innovative booth design trends. Some of these designers may also be available for consultation. Any designer wishing to offer their services or insights should contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned to the KBIS Digital Pressroom for updates on who these designers are.
KBIS, in conjunction with the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) is an inspiring, interactive platform that showcases the latest industry products, trends and technologies. KBIS is the voice of the kitchen and bath industry and has been for 50 years.
Early in 2013, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) announced an agreement to co-locate the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, Nev. in February 2014 under the banner of Design and Construction Week™. The mega-event will return Jan. 20-22, 2015, in Las Vegas with each show occupying a separate hall. Kitchen and bath brands that have participated in both shows can continue to choose to exhibit in the KBIS or IBS hall. One pass will provide access to both exhibits. NKBA and NAHB will continue to produce separate educational programming and special events.
