One of the most respected kitchen and bath online forums, #KBTribeChat, is coming to Design & Construction Week™. On Tuesday, February 4th at 1pm, #KBTribeChat is hosting 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 online and in-person for a first look at the latest and most innovative products at KBIS 2014. Headed up by Stacy Garcia, founder of #KBTribeChat, attendees will progress through the show floor to visit three exhibitors including Amerock Hardware, Cambria USA and Wellborn Cabinet, Inc.
“To have #KBTribeChat host a live chat experience on the show floor is an honor,” said Brian Pagel, VP Kitchen & Bath Group, Emerald Expositions. “As the premier event in the kitchen & bath industry, we’re thrilled to offer a platform for this group of attendees, who are influencers in their own right, the opportunity to canvas the show floor and see the latest and greatest from manufacturers – and ultimately, share it with the rest of the industry.”
#KBTribeChat brings contractors, 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 peak into all things KBIS and what attendees can expect to see at this year’s show.
“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.”

KBIS, in conjunction with the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) is an inspiring, interactive platform that showcases the latest industry products, trends and technologies. KBIS is the voice of the kitchen and bath industry and has been for 50 years.
Early in 2013, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) announced an agreement to co-locate the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, Nevada beginning in February 2014 under the banner of “Design and Construction Week.” The new mega-event will be held Feb. 4-6, 2014, in Las Vegas with each show occupying a separate hall. 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. NKBA and NAHB will continue to produce separate educational programming and special events.
