KBIS or Bust!

KBIS is sadly over and we have so much to tell you about! This years event was held in New Orleans and the weekend was jam packed with lectures, sneak peeks of the latest products and seeing good friends! Heres a quick run down of KBIS events!

Voices of Reason

One great feature of KBIS was the new conference series, Voices from the Industry. This collection of over 70 speakers included people from all industries and all levels of professions. For example, Gary Vaynerchuk, the keynote speaker, is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author as well as a social media expert. He illustrated how authenticity, originality, honesty and good intent are great advantages for small business.

\"Gary  \"David

Another great speaker was HGTV Design Star winner and host of HGTV Color Splash David Bromstad. David illustrated some great points about the current challenges in design as well as great business tactics. We also learned about The Influence of the Generations on the Kitchen and Bath Market with Tammy Erickson, the CEO of Tammy Erickson Associates.

Best in Show

Of course our favorite feature is learning about the latest in kitchen products and trends. The Jenn-Air booth was the place to see the new Accolade Downdraft Ventilation System in action. The vent rises to 19in to cover everything from a frying pan to a stockpot.  Guests were also treated to a quick peek of the new 24 steam and convection oven. Available this fall, this oven will feature gexciting new modes like Proofing, Steam Defrost, and Sous Vide Reheat.

\"Jenn   \"Liebherr

Liebherr introduced KBIS attendees to the newest member of their family, the 48 Side by Side Built In refrigerator. This refrigerator introduces BioFresh Plus, which provides greater control at keeping your food in the optimal storage conditions. You now have the ability to adjust the temperature in each BioFresh Plus compartment for the best temperature and humidity for everything from fruit to fish to cheese.

Setting the Bar

This years KBIS was special for many reasons. The parent group, National Kitchen and Bath Association, used this event to recognize their 50th anniversary. All attendees and exhibitors were all invited a big bash on Saturday evening to help celebrate the milestone event.


It was also a monumental occasion because this is the last year that KBIS will be a separate entity. Starting in 2014, KBIS will join the International Builders Show in Las Vegas as part of Design Week. This new mega-show will take place February 4  6 with each show occupying its own hall.
All of us at K&N Sales hope you enjoyed this behind the scenes look at the 2013 Kitchen and Bath. Just remember that it is 284 days until KBIS 2014 is in full swing!
