The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, held Jan. 21-23 in Las Vegas, got high marks from its owner, the National Kitchen and Bath Association.

“This was an amazing event. One of the best since 2008. The energy at KBIS was electric,” says Suzie Williford, executive vice president of industry relations and chief strategy officer for NKBA.

“KBIS is the time we bring the entire industry together and this year was especially stellar. There was a constant flow of new and exciting products to see and insights to learn, whether walking the show floor, participating in one of our educational sessions, attending a KBIS/Next Stage panel discussion, or reconnecting with an industry colleague. KBIS 2020 was exceptional.”

KBIS is held conjunction with the International Builders’ Show as part of Design and Construction Week. Total attendance was announced at over 90,000.

KBIS featured over 600 exhibitors, 70 education sessions, award programs and more.

“We came into this year with a sold-out show floor, more than 500 returning exhibitors and 100 exhibiting for the first time,” says Amy Hornby, KBIS show director. “KBIS has experienced double digit attendance growth over the past two years, and hundreds of exhibitors are confirmed to exhibit at KBIS 2021, with many increasing their show presence. Early sales are up over 20,000 more NSF than the same time last year, with more than 85 percent of the show floor space secured.”

KBIS 2021 is scheduled for Feb. 9-11, 2021 in Orlando, Fla.
