Kitchen & Bath Business September 2021 - 6

September 2021
editor' s note
Obviously, everyone is excited to see people and
GIVING BACK AND LOOKING FORWARD
I
t's that time again when the KBB editors choose the coveted Person of
the Year and our Praiseworthy Picks. Th e overarching theme was all about
giving back in some way - to their community, to small businesses, to the
younger generations and to the environment.
Th e overall winner (I'll keep it secret until you get to the coverage
starting on page 54) spent countless hours poring over the Paycheck
Protection Program that was pivotal to small businesses during the pandemic
and helped many apply. She shares everything from marketing tips to solutions
to jobsite challenges with other designers - whether they are seasoned
or just starting out.
Th e Praiseworthy Picks are also doing some amazing things to give back,
including donating to groups in need, recycling kitchens, creating inclusive
residential environments, mentoring students looking to get into the industry
and helping pros and clients generate more realistic project budgets.
Th ere were so many amazing candidates this year, it was hard to narrow
down our choices. I am looking forward to interviewing our 2021 Person of
the Year at KBIS in February.
And speaking of KBIS! We asked our readers - and our colleagues - what
they are most looking forward to at the 2022 show, and the answers were all
over the board.

products in person. Th ere really is no substitute to
being able to look inside an oven, touch a hardware
knob and turn on a decorative pendant. At KBIS
2022, we will also learn about all the new product
innovations that have been borne out of the
pandemic and a new way of living in our homes.
Others are looking forward to all the knowledge
they will gain from the various platforms,
including the KBISNeXT Stage and the Voices
from the Industry conference - lots of exciting and
educational topics to come.
One reader is excited to see all the wonderfully
designed booths at the show, and others are interested
in acquainting themselves with new and
lesser-known brands. Outdoor living, lighting
off erings, innovation in cabinetry, backsplash and
tile trends, wellness design and emerging technology
are all at the top of the list for what KBIS
attendees want to see in February.
Registration is now open for KBIS 2022, so
don't delay. We can't wait to see you there! 
