21 leading design influencers will be in Las Vegas this January to discover and reveal the 2023 directions for the kitchen and bath.

(BETHLEHEM, PA) – November 30, 2022– The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), owned by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), celebrates its continued partnership with Modenus Media’s Designhounds Influencer Network. The influencers are back at KBIS in 2023, this time with a huge team of 21 design influencers who will be onsite starting January 30, 2023, for the Designhounds KBIS Kick-Off Conference at the Las Vegas Market and then spending three days scouring the KBIS show floor. Select Designhounds sponsors will share new trends and product innovations with their audiences through the greater Designhounds Influencer Network. 

Also returning for 2023 is the Designhounds Favorite Finds program with each tour participant bestowing their Top 5 Favorite Finds awards for the best products they’ve spotted throughout KBIS. 

“We are very proud to have been invited to partner with KBIS on the 11th year of our Designhounds Influencer Program,” shared Veronika Miller, Modenus Media, CEO, and Designhounds Founder. “Our network as a whole and the year-round tours and individual brand/influencer partnerships have grown from strength to strength and lead the kitchen and bath industry in terms of social media impact and engagement between buyers and brands. We look forward to this year’s team covering the show floor and our brand partners and bestowing their Designhounds Favorite Finds Awards on deserving exhibitors throughout KBIS.”

KBIS and Modenus Media began their partnership in 2012 and have collaborated to integrate social influencers – with a focus on residential design – into the trade show platform and extended experiences. KBIS, and numerous Designhounds partners, continue to drive awareness of the industry beyond its traditional scope.

Started in 2011 by Veronika Miller, CEO, and founder of Modenus Media, the Designhounds Influencer Network features over 600 influencers throughout North America and Europe who are recognized authorities in interior design, kitchen and bath design, and architecture.
