KBIS 2020 was the last event I attended in person before the COVID-19 lockdown, and I can’t believe a year has gone by already… get ready for KBIS 2021–Virtual!
KBIS Virtual takes place next week, February 9-12, 2021 and the virtual “show floor” will be open daily from 10 AM – 6 PM ET. You can register here if you haven’t done so already. All of the KBIS Virtual content will be found at kbisconnect.com, where attendees can explore the virtual exhibitor booths, schedule and meet one-on-one with brands just like IRL! From here, you can also experience product demonstrations, attend exclusive live events and participate in all the good content you’ve come to expect from KBIS – from your couch! You will even be able to chat live with any KBIS Virtual exhibitor to experience the industry’s newest and most innovative products.
And, returning this year are the early media preview day on Monday, February 8th, the popular Best of KBIS Annual Awards (crowning the “best of the best” on Friday, February 12th), NKBA Design + Industry Awards, twice daily panels and discussions with industry experts on the KBIS NeXT stage, and DesignBites where you can discover the new products trending in the areas of luxury, smart technology and wellness.
In a new collaboration, KBIS welcomes ICFF to KBIS Virtual, with media support from Design Milk. We are super excited about it! The ICFF Pavilion will be the place to find edgy, unique, one of a kind, and compelling kitchen and bath products from manufacturers not typically at KBIS, including Fantini, Nemo Tile + Stone, Lefroy Brooks, Hastings Tile & Bath and AMEICO Lighting. We’re also curating exclusive pavilion programming that celebrates the individual makers as well as established producers all with one common focus: high design.
Take a look at some products from the ICFF Pavilion exhibitors:
As with previous years, KBIS Virtual will be co-located with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) as part of Design & Construction Week, and KBIS attendees will have access to all IBS exhibitors through the KBIS Virtual platform as part of their KBIS registration.
