2017

See What the Exhibitors Have in Store
The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), which takes place Jan. 9-11, 2018, at the Orange County Convention Center
in Orlando, has been the voice of the residential kitchen and bath industry for 50 years. In January, KBIS will host more
than 600 leading kitchen and bath brands, including 100+ new companies, across two halls. KBB spoke with a handful of
these exhibitors to see what they have in store for KBIS 2018.

Miele, Booth W157
DuPont Surfaces,
Booth W1971

DuPont Surfaces has increased its
booth footprint for KBIS 2018 from
800 to 3,600 square feet to accommodate more visitors and showcase ample product offerings. The
company will introduce its Corian
Solid Surface and Zodiaq Quartz
(pictured) new colors, as well as its
new sinks. Visitors will experience
its new Corian Design brand messaging and learn about the latest new
colors and aesthetics.
"We exhibited in 2017 and had a
very positive experience," said Katie
Congress, global residential marketing manager for DuPont Protective Solutions. "KBIS is a great
venue to introduce new products
and our brand message. We receive
traffic from a lot of designers and
retailers who would not otherwise
see our products."

The company's KBIS 2018 booth will encompass 4,000 square feet of experiential space - much like an art gallery - called "Miele Gallery of the Senses"
(pictured) so attendees can get up close and personal with its extensive
appliance offerings. Visitors will engage in a sensory experience to see, feel,
hear, taste and smell the benefits of the company's products, which include
laundry systems, dishwashers, ranges, convection ovens, cooktops, steam
ovens, ventilation hoods, refrigeration and coffee systems.
"As reported by KBIS, the number of qualified attendees has increased
year-over-year, and 78 percent of these attendees agree that visiting with
brands at KBIS leads to more purchasing and specifying decisions," said
Kevin Pchola, spokesperson for Miele. "Exhibiting at KBIS 2018 will allow
Miele to meet with our current contacts, as well as expand and make relationships with new industry contacts."

Samsung
Electronics
America,
Booth W770

The company returns to KBIS after
seven years with a
3,000-sq.-ft. booth
featuring products that will redefine how builders, remodelers, designers,
architects and consumers think about home appliances. Visitors will see how
the company's home appliances, including the Chef Collection (pictured), are
making the connected home a reality for today's technology-savvy homeowner.
"Samsung is exhibiting at KBIS 2018 because we see this as an important
opportunity to introduce our broad portfolio of connected home appliances
to the building industry and its array of constituencies," said David Bernardino, marketing director - home appliances, super premium and builder
at Samsung Electronics America. "Our company has long championed new
technology, beautiful design and powerful performance in our home appliances, and we are now bringing an even more elevated sense of innovation
and leadership to the category."

Parkview Cabinets
Imports, Booth W101
After a successful response exhibiting at KBIS 2017, the company
is expanding its booth size 2,300
square feet this year. Parkview will
feature kitchen and bath cabinetry in a variety of vignettes, as well
as accessories to match, including
wood hoods, corbels, feet and legs.
The company will also promote its
patented Hook-Loc Assembly for
a faster, easier installation through
ongoing demonstrations. Pictured
is the company's Charleston raisedpanel cabinetry in Dove.
"KBIS offers us the opportunity
to reach a wide audience to showcase our cabinetry," said David
Vaughan, vice president of sales for
Parkview Cabinets Imports. "As
we are growing, it is important to
create an awareness of our company and the breadth of products
we offer. It also allows us to receive
feedback from people buying from
other companies."
