PEOPLE & PLACES Emerald Expositions announces the launch of Design Americas, a new show catering to the hospitality, contract, kitchen and bath and retail design markets. The show will serve as the definitive destination for designers looking to explore the latest products and services either from a respective sector or across the entire design industry. Taking place at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Fla., from Sept. 16 to September 17, 2015, the event will take the form of four shows in one, with a floor plan that separates each sector, but allows attendees easy access to the entire exhibition. The unified show will also welcome leaders in the respective focuses for a series of panels and conference events. Design Americas will be promoted to the newly created 220,000+ attendee/reader database of The Design Group (www.thedesigngroup.me), including a fresh and extensive purpose-built database of the top architects, interior designers, developers, visual merchandisers and retailers in the key markets of Brazil, Mexico, Columbia, Argentina, Venezuela, Peru, Chile and the Caribbean Islands. The Design Group serves the interior design marketplace through its leading industry events and media. The kitchen and bath sector is addressed by K+BB magazine. Supporting the hospitality sector are Hospitality Design Expo, HD Americas, HD Summit and Hospitality Design magazine. The contract and commercial space sector is represented by Contract magazine, while retail design is served by GlobalShop and design:retail magazine. The Design Group is a division of Emerald Expositions, LLC.

This partnership is expected to improve the lives of an estimated 3,000,000 people, with the first shipments to be distributed by Water for People in Malawi and Uganda. The pan works without sewer infrastructure and uses mechanical and water seals to close off the latrines to the open air.
