Exhibitor Spotlight: Returning Brands

Dec 12, 2014

Economic forecasts continue to predict an increase in the remodeling market, which have major brands eager to return to the 2015 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS). The second year of the co-location with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) brings renewed interest in the show with not only interior designers and architects, but also with builders and contractors. Some of these returning brands include TOTO, Blum, Inc., Top Knobs, MasterBrand Cabinets and Formica® Corporation. New and returning exhibitors classify KBIS as one of the premier venues to endorse their brands, magnify their customer base and present their products to a variety of design professionals.

“KBIS is a good time to meet with industry representatives, current and potential customers, and the media to showcase our latest products. KBIS also gives our staff a chance to see, first-hand, the latest products and trends in the industry,” stated Formica® Corporation.

As the world’s largest producer of High Pressure Laminate (HPL), Formica® is ready to offer an array of new colors and patterns when they return to KBIS 2015.

As a KBIS Loyalty Leader Blum, Inc. is also gearing up for another year at the show. Their newly released LEGRABOX drawer system will be shown. This system takes full advantage of functional space with its linear configuration. It is offered in brushed stainless steel and gray matte, with an option of two or three drawer side heights.

As the world’s largest plumbing manufacturer and a KBIS Loyalty Leader, TOTO also returns to the KBIS floor for 2015. TOTO will expand its line of bath fixtures at KBIS 2015 with the debut of the Connelly Suite, which incorporates superior curves with bold, symmetrical shapes.

Offering an exclusive line of ornate hardware, ranging from traditional to modern style, Top Knobs continues to return to KBIS year after year:

“KBIS is an excellent opportunity for one-on-one time with customers, as well as a unique opportunity for time with independent designers – a group we very much want to reach. An indication of our commitment to KBIS is the growth in size of Top Knobs KBIS booth – we are expanding this year’s booth by 60%,” said David Tyler, VP Marketing & Product Management for Top Knobs. “We believe the KBIS show is “free” due to the new customers we sign up, the new collections we place with current customers, and the opportunity to meet with industry influencers and tell the Top Knobs story.”

MasterBrand Cabinets is one of the largest cabinet constructers in North America. They find KBIS to be very beneficial for them:

“The benefit of seeing other companies within our industry from appliances to fixtures is also valuable. It is a great place to network, see what other companies are bringing to the industry and meet with our designers. Another benefit is our ability to demonstrate our cabinet functionality and modifications in ways that some designers may not have seen or experienced yet. For example, our custom color and furniture pieces push limits on design, while still offering the high quality benefits and features that dealers and designers expect,” explains Andy Wells, VP of Product Design and Trend, MasterBrand Cabinets.
