    The KBIS Countdown Begins

    There are just under 90 days until registration for KBIS opens on Sept. 4!

    The best, brightest and most successful professionals in the kitchen and bath design and remodeling industry are gathering at the industry’s leading showcase for product, exchanging ideas and career development — the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) — slated for Feb. 19-21, 2019, in Las Vegas.

    Each year, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) strives to present an unparalleled show experience, with the latest in design, products and home technologies; informative industry insights, and learning opportunities for professionals to advance their businesses and career trajectory.

    Our co-location with the National Association of Home Builders’ International Builders Show makes this the premiere event in North America in which to see what’s hot and what’s next across the entire design, building and remodeling sectors. It’s a great place to network and make valuable business connections.

    A journey of discovery awaits kitchen and bath pros throughout the three-day expo. See the newest smart-home technologies, the most advanced appliances, fixtures, cabinetry, surfaces, lighting, storage, design software and new ideas to take the most important spaces in the home into the future. The Voices from the Industry Conference presents 80 classes, all qualifying for CEU credits, taught by experts on topics like design, kitchen and bath specialty training, growing one’s business, marketing and more, while some of the 600-plus KBIS exhibitors conduct training sessions in their booths on the show floor. Two amazing NKBA-hosted parties — the Design Competition and Industry Awards at the Opening Night Party, and The Bash — are all part of the fun.

    Best of all: the show is free to attend — if you’re an NKBA member and register between Sept. 4 and 30!

    This is just one of many benefits of belonging to the Association. Besides a complimentary KBIS Show Pass, members are eligible for a free early-bird entry into the professional design competition, a free profile page on to promote your business and specialties, the opportunity to obtain NKBA’s highly regarded certifications in kitchen and bath design: Associated Kitchen & Bath Designer (AKBD); Certified Kitchen & Bath Designer (CKBD), and Certified Master Kitchen & Bath Designer (CMKBD). Members stay connected through our insightful blog and newsletter, Innovation + Inspiration magazine, and included membership in one of our 70 local chapters across North America.
