KBIS 2022 Highlights

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!

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.  Check out relevant sessions and take away valuable information to enhance your business.

Wear (Really) Comfortable Shoes.

KBIS is a massive show floor and you don’t want to miss anything because your feet are sore or tired.

Drink Plenty of Water

The amount of walking and after show parties and events will be much more enjoyable if you stay hydrated.

Don't Forget to Eat!

Bring a snack or a protein bar with you, but you will have long days that require you to fuel yourself.

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.

“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!”
