All New Design and Construction Week Announced for 2014

Merlot recently attended the 2013 International Builders’ Show (IBS) where we saw the upcoming year’s hottest and most innovative products in the building and construction categories. The tradeshow was packed with various manufacturers, resellers and media representatives, all surrounded by the “glitz” of Las Vegas. By the end of the show our team was ready to settle into a nice glass of Merlot.

One of the announcements that came out of the show is that the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), and the Kitchen Bath Industry Show (KBIS), in an agreement with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), have decided to co-locate with IBS for “Design and Construction Week” beginning in February 2014 in Las Vegas.

The combined conference will feature these shows and two associations all in one place. This larger event will ensure a wider variety of manufacturers will have the opportunity to showcase their latest products to an even greater audience, many of whom would otherwise not have an opportunity to experience the full array of ancillary products in related design and construction categories. There will be no better place to identify the latest trends in the home and building products segment and it will serve as a central hub to network with industry peers and influencers.

Additionally beginning in 2015, the conference will expand further with the addition of SURFACES and StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas making it the ultimate on stop “shop” for designers, architects, builders and industry professionals.

As we prepare for KBIS 2013 in New Orleans this April, we look forward to the evolution of these shows and the industry and are optimistic about what 2014 and 2015 will bring.
