KBIS Celebrates Kick-Off of Design & Construction Week with Champagne & Cupcakes

Jan 2, 2014

KBIS 2014 kicks off the inaugural Design & Construction Week at the Las Vegas Convention Center with “Champagne & Cupcakes,” a live “Tweet Up” event. Members of Modenus BlogTour Las Vegas and other social media influences are invited to attend the event at 11AM on Tuesday, February 4, 2014, in the Electrolux booth (N3005).

 

“We are excited for this opportunity to build buzz on the opening day of KBIS 2014 by highlighting our exhibitors, events and educational opportunities attendees can experience throughout the show on social media,” said Brian Pagel, VP Kitchen & Bath Group, Emerald Expositions. “This will bring together members of the A&D community both at the show and remotely to discuss the trends and technologies being unveiled at this year’s show.”

 

The response from last year’s inaugural tweet up held in New Orleans, Beignets & Bubbly, made it an easy decision for KBIS to repeat the social media kick off event.

 

“Electrolux is proud to sponsor this year’s tweet up event in our booth, and we look forward to toasting to another successful KBIS show,” said Eloise Hale, VP of Corporate Communications, Electrolux North America.

 

In true Las Vegas style, the event will be catered with champagne and cupcakes. For more information, please visit www.kbis.com.
