LAS VEGAS • FEB 25 – FEB 27, 2025

First Time Attendees

What Can First Time Attendees Expect from KBIS?

KBIS is the largest kitchen and bath show in North America, so you can expect to see a TON of products on the show floor. KBIS stretches across three exhibition halls in the Las Vegas Convention Center: North, West, and South Halls. It is also co-located with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) to create Design and Construction Week (DCW). That means you get access to two shows with your KBIS registration. Here’s some helpful tips to help you navigate our biggest event yet.

Helpful Tips from Past Attendees

Make a Plan.

The show can be overwhelming with the number of exhibitors, sessions, and other events. So review the exhibitor listings and show offerings, and make a plan.

Attend an Event

KBIS happens only once a year, so make the most of your experience by attending an off-site special event, like The Bash or NKBA Design Awards. 

Bring Business Cards.

You will meet many new contacts and connections, so bring a supply to hand out.

Check out KBIS NEXTStage

The KBIS NEXTStage is free to all attendees. Attend sessions and gain valuable information to enhance your business.

Wear (Really) Comfortable Shoes.

KBIS has a massive show floor, sprawling across the North, West, and South halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Be prepared to get your steps in!

Drink Plenty of Water

The amount of walking, after show parties, and events will be much more enjoyable if you stay hydrated. Bring a reusable water bottle to fill up at various water stations through the Las Vegas Convention Center. 

Don't Forget to Eat!

Bring a snack or a protein bar with you. The long days will require you to fuel yourself. There are also plenty of on-site food options available. 

Book your Hotel in the Official Show Hotel Block.

Show management negotiates the best rates for hotel rooms, which will make traveling easier on your wallet. Book your hotel for KBIS 2024 here

“I find that the knowledge and relationship building value of attending this event is worth so much more than can be valued monetarily.  The ability to find and research new products to build your brand and to build/strengthen relationships influences our showroom for years!”
