The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) and International Builders’ Show (IBS), scheduled for Feb. 9-11, 2021 in Orlando, Fla., has moved to an online event.

The two shows, produced by the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), will feature programming throughout “Design & Construction Week”, which starts Feb. 8, 2021.

“Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of our exhibitors, attendees and the thousands of onsite workers who support the premier event of the residential construction industry, we feel the only prudent course is to make this year’s show a virtual event,” says NAHB chairman Chuck Fowke, a custom home builder from Tampa, Fla.

“We have plenty of great virtual educational programs, innovative products, services and workshops on tap, and we are very excited about the 2021 show. It’s an opportunity to set a precedent for the industry by producing a dynamic virtual trade show, and we look forward to a very successful Design & Construction Week.”
