Rebranded Event to Welcome Kitchen & Bath Social Influencers, Media and VIPS
(Alpharetta, Ga.) – September 18, 2018 – The 2019 , the destination for kitchen and bath design professionals, has named as official partner for KBIS Uncorked, the invitation-only show event that replaces the widely known and loved hallmark, Champagne & Cupcakes. KBIS Uncorked aptly moves to an afternoon time slot, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM on the first day of the show, Tuesday, February 19, 2019, and will include a lively panel discussion on all things wine moderated by Modenus Media CEO Veronika Miller.
Invitees include top kitchen and bath social influencers, media and other VIPs who will gather in the Signature Kitchen Suite Booth (C5907), located in Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“Partnering with KBIS to bring one of the most energetic events to the show floor spotlights Signature Kitchen Suite’s role as a forward-looking brand committed to innovative thinking, purposeful design and leading-edge technologies,” said Zach Elkin, general manager of Signature Kitchen Suite. “Like our portfolio of luxury kitchen appliances, KBIS Uncorked is sure to be memorable, and we look forward to a thoughtful dialogue surrounding the latest in kitchen design in a dynamic and engaging atmosphere.”
“Signature Kitchen Suite is an incredible partner and we are honored to celebrate KBIS 2019 with them,” said Brian Pagel, senior vice president, Emerald Expositions. “We are excited to ‘uncork’ with a community of influencers who contribute so much to the growth and vitality of the kitchen and bath industry.”
“Though we’ve traded morning champagne for afternoon wine, KBIS Uncorked still celebrates our industry’s most influential voices. We can’t wait to join Signature Kitchen Suite to toast another year of spectacular kitchen and bath design,” added Veronika Miller, who created the event in 2013.
