KBTribeChat to Host “Live” Progressive Chat at KBIS 2015

Jan 9, 2015

#KBTribeChat, one of the most respected kitchen and bath online forums, is returning to the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS).On January 20, 2015 at 1:00pm, #KBTribeChat will host a live, progressive chat on the KBIS show floor at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Typically hosted online, this chat will bring its participants together in-person and online for a first look at the latest and most innovative products at KBIS 2015. Headed up by Stacy Garcia, founder of #KBTribeChat, attendees will progress through the show floor with stops at  three exhibitors including Cambria USA, Wellborn Cabinet and TOTO.

“We are thrilled to have #KBTribeChat host a live chat on the show floor again this year,” said Brian Pagel, VP Kitchen & Bath Group, Emerald Expositions. “This is our third year working together and continues to be a show highlight. While we’d love to have everyone in our industry attend, we know that’s not always possible. #KBTribeChat gives those unable to make it to Vegas an opportunity to learn about the latest products from some of our manufacturers – and share that with the rest of the industry.”

“KBTribeChat is all about connecting everyone in the industry,” said Stacy Garcia, founder, KBTribeChat. “It’s a real treat to see everyone face to face for a change, engage with products and trends in the physical sense and share it with everyone live from the show floor.”

For this year’s chat, Wellborn Cabinet will showcase its new smart design with the use of technology, cabinetry customization and 2015 color trends. Cambria will highlight the advancements in stone fabrication technology and introduce new surface textures and patterns. TOTO is celebrating its 25 Years of Innovation Anniversary and will showcase products that are easy-to-use regardless of age or physical ability.

KBTribeChat brings, kitchen and bath designers, interior designers, architects, bloggers, manufacturers, brands and industry insiders together every Wednesday from 2:00 – 3:00 pm EST on Twitter to discuss industry trends, innovative products and emerging design ideas. With more than 9,200 Twitter followers and weekly participants from every corner of the industry, KBIS is proud to collaborate with ”the tribe” to provide a sneak peek into all things KBIS and what attendees can expect to see at this year’s show.
