  • Why you think it deserves to be in the running

 

We can’t guarantee the product will be submitted, but we can notify the manufacturer and make sure your voice is heard! Feel free to reach out via Twitter @KBIS2013 with your recommendation as well.

 

If you do not have a chance to tell us what you think should be nominated – we still want to hear from you. Cast your ballot in the Best of KBIS People’s Choice Awards to be held on the KBIS Facebook Page April 8th through the 14th.

 

A panel of architects and designers will review all the product submissions at KBIS on the show floor and decide which products represent Best of KBIS 2013. Winners will be selected based on functionality, quality/durability, flexibility, aesthetics/style and innovation.

 

The winners will be announced by Alan W. Zielinski, CKD, Better Kitchens, Inc. and Immediate Past President, NKBA on Saturday, April 20, at 1:00PM on Center Stage in the NKBA booth.
