For the first time ever, the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), will recognize exhibitors for innovative booth designs and displays with the KBIS Innovation Booth Awards. Known for its abundance of new products and cutting-edge designs, KBIS is also a destination for some of the most innovative booth and product display presentations in the residential design industry. Booths will be judged on: WOW Factor, Messaging, Education, Engagement and “The Unexpected & Unprecedented”.
“KBIS is putting the ‘design’ in Design & Construction Week™,” said Brian Pagel, VP Kitchen & Bath Group, Emerald Expositions. “The Innovation Booth Awards was borne of the premise that, ‘Creativity is contagious. Pass it on,’ said Albert Einstein. We want to not only recognize the exhibitors who always create provocative displays, but also encourage all exhibitors to prove their status as innovators in the kitchen and bath industry with new and exciting display concepts.”
Exhibitors may enter the competition at www.kbisinnovation.com. There is no cost to enter. Entries will have their entire booth judged on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 from 9AM-12PM, 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 and 30 Under 30 Alumni.
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, February 5, 2014 at 11:30AM 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.

Kitchen and bath brands that have participated in both shows can choose to exhibit in the KBIS or IBS hall. One pass will provide access to both exhibits.
