KBIS 2013 to Present 2013 Outstanding Media Award

Apr 15, 2013

An important element of the Kitchen and Bath industry is the relationship it maintains with the media. From print to broadcast and digital media outlets, this relationship is instrumental to convey messages and promote the industry through trend reports, new product introductions, installations and business news. To honor this relationship, KBIS 2013 will award one member of the media with the first KBIS Outstanding Media Award.
