KBTribeChat Progressive Live Chat Returns to KBIS 2016

Oct 20, 2015

#KBTribeChat, one of the most respected kitchen and bath online forums, makes its fourth appearance at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) by hosting a live, progressive chat on the KBIS show floor at 1PM on January 19, 2016. Typically hosted online each Wednesday, this chat will bring its participants together in-person and online for a first look at the latest and most innovative products at KBIS 2016. Headed up by Stacy Garcia, founder of #KBTribeChat, attendees will progress through the show floor with stops at three exhibitors including TOTO, Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. and Cambria USA:



“This is the fourth year working together to host a live #KBTribeChat on the KBIS show floor, and it remains a highlight for everyone in the industry – including those unable to make it to Vegas,” said Brian Pagel, VP Kitchen & Bath Group, Emerald Expositions. “We encourage everyone to join us, both at KBIS and beyond, to learn about the latest products and innovations debuting at KBIS.”

During this year’s chat, participants will explore Cambria’s new Brittanicca and Ella marble lines. Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. will showcase color in its 2016 KBIS vignettes that illustrate an enhanced high end aesthetic of color and texture while remaining in a semi-custom cabinetry budget.

“Getting together with KBtribechat friends is one of my show highlights,” said Stacy Garcia, KBtribechat founder. “Meeting in person strengthens the connections made online every week during our industry discussions. Sharing excitement over making discoveries together is a lot of fun and what our progressive event is all about!”

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 19,600 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.
