SHOW DIRECTOR'S NOTE

Expanding Your Reach
in the Design Space
Probably one of the most important lessons any of us learned during
the Great Recession was to not be a one-trick pony. Consumers are
looking for a full-service solution, so your ability to leverage your network
and bring in other trades to complete a job can in many cases be the
difference between winning and losing a customer.This is where I believe
we can help add value to your business.
The mission of K+BB magazine is simple: Kitchen and Bath Business is
the kitchen and bath professional's essential resource for the knowledge,
skills, concepts and tactics they need to effectively communicate and
collaborate with the entire project team - including the consumer,
the newest member of that team. K+BB is committed to teaching and
guiding professionals in selling the value of their expertise and services in
an industry that is inundated with do-it-yourselfers and buy-it-yourselfers.
From cutting-edge - and even practical - design trends to remarkable
product innovation to embracing the lifestyles of today's more sophisticated homeowners, our readers
will be armed with techniques and tools for building their professions and successfully running their
businesses.
As a part of our ongoing commitment to better serve the design community, we are pleased to offer
expanded distribution of K+BB at the 26th-annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), May
17-20, at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York (www.ICFF.com). While it's not uncommon to see K+BB
at other leading trade events, what makes this unique is that ICFF is the latest addition to our larger
design portfolio, which also includes KBIS, HD Expo, HD Americas, GlobalShop and Hospitality Design,
Design:Retail and Contract magazines, as well as more than 30 stand-alone design conferences.
The addition of ICFF will now offer you access to key product categories, including contemporary
furniture, seating, carpet and flooring, lighting, outdoor furniture, materials, wall coverings, accessories,
textiles and kitchen and bath products for residential and commercial interiors. For those of you who
picked up a copy of K+BB at ICFF and are reading the magazine for the first time, welcome. We hope
you like what you see and will consider a subscription to K+BB or attending KBIS, January 20-22, 2015, at
the Las Vegas Convention Center.
In the coming weeks and months we will continue to look at how we can add more value to you,
as a design professional, by leveraging the strengths of all of our design brands. As always, if you have
suggestions on how we can better serve YOU, we would love to hear them. n
