KBB - October 2015 - 45

KBIS SPECIAL SECTION It's All about the Great Outdoors Outdoor kitchen and living spaces are a hot trend in the housing industry right now, as homeowners are blurring the lines between entertaining indoors and out. To highlight and support this growing trend, several KBIS 2016 manufacturers will exhibit the latest outdoor products being launched into the marketplace. These exhibitors will be spread out through the North Hall, and there will be a designated area in the South Hall where some of these products will also be on display. Here is what you can expect to see from some of the outdoor kitchen and living space exhibitors: * Liebherr (Booth N463) is thrilled to be exhibiting once again at KBIS and is looking forward to engaging with core industry influencers, including dealers, designers, architects, remodelers, builders and developers. Liebherr will be displaying the RO 510, a compact 24-in. outdoor undercounter beverage/wine cooler, that can hold meats, marinades, wine, beer and soft drinks, as well as barbeque supplies. It allows you to have all your ingredients close at hand and features three glass storage shelves with stainless steel trim and two door racks (one adjustable) with elegant retainers. "As a specialist in refrigerators and freezers, Liebherr is consistently developing new and innovative solutions to boost freshness, enhance ease-of-use and save even more energy," said Josef Steigmiller, vice president, Liebherr Refrigeration, the Americas. "We will be showcasing a variety of fully integrated, built-in and freestanding models within the range of refrigeration/freezer, wine, outdoor and under-the-counter beverage centers offering consumers a greater range of customization and added convenience." * True Residential (Booth N663) is looking forward to seeing the strong national crowd and engaged audience seen the last two years at KBIS 2014 and 2015. According to Andrew Shead, marketing specialist at True Manuf., "KBIS is always a fantastic venue for us to meet with some of our most important partners. Designers, architects and dealers have all made time to learn about our products while helping us understand their current and emerging needs." The True Dual Tap Beverage Dispenser is ideal for the beer connoisseur and for those who love to entertain. It uses the company's airflow technology, ensuring a consistently frosty, refreshing pour, and can be used indoors or outside on the patio. "Many of our customers are spending as much on their outdoor kitchen as they are on their indoor kitchen," said Shead. "Many of the outdoor spaces we're included in have every amenity that a typical indoor kitchen would have, including sinks, prep stations, elaborate grills and cooking appliances - as well as multiple refrigerators." * Grill Dome (Booth S4099) is looking forward to introducing KBIS to the world of ceramic grills and the Grill Dome line - and having some fun during the show! The company will feature its new custom color skus, including the GD-SSXL, GD-DRXL and GDXL-CC, shown here on a Domemobile. "Customization is definitely key as consumers are becoming more advanced grillers and are looking for certain key setups and control mechanisms," said Ashish Kohli, Grill Dome's president. What's Happening at KBIS NeXT™? * Best of KBIS returns to Las Vegas for KBIS 2016. Entries will be displayed via larger-thanlife product walls located in the North and South halls. See at quick glance which products are entered, then visit the brands at their booths to see the products live. Sponsored by Traditional Home, Beautiful Kitchens & Baths and Dream Kitchens & Baths. * Now in its second year, the Innovative Showroom Awards celebrate existing showrooms in the kitchen & bath space that are doing a great job of engagement, creating an unforgettable experience and educating their customers. Showrooms will be judged on their innovative, unique and interactive showroom design. Sponsored by American Standard Brands and Grohe. * The Virginia Tech FutureHAUS Bath will feature integrated smart technology designed to change the approach to how we construct buildings and make operating in the bath more effective. This show feature will be centrally located in the South Hall in Booth S5133. * Retail Observer magazine and KBIS have teamed up to create an Outdoor Products Pavilion in the South Hall. Designers, architects and dealers will be able to source outdoor products for one of the hottest trends in the industry - outdoor kitchens. * Welcome to the debut of Design Bites - quick, three-minute presentations in which exhibitors will have the opportunity to "speed date" with media and attendees about their most innovative product. Up to seven kitchen companies will present on January 19th and seven bath companies on January 20th. * There will be a Happy Hour at the KBISNeXT Stage on Tuesday and Wednesday, Jan. 19&20, from 4 to 5 p.m. www.kbbonline.com / October 2015 K+BB 45 http://www.kbbonline.com
