We are thrilled to announce that Caesarstone is
coming back in full force with a large presence in
the front of the South Hall, and for the first time at
KBIS, Sharp Electronics Corp. will be exhibiting
in the Central Hall.
EXPERIENCE PRODUCT INNOVATION

For KBIS 2020, we are offering new curated tours
to help you navigate the latest in kitchen and bathroom technology. GE is sponsoring our first-ever
Technology Tour, which will serve as a guide to
lead you through the latest in kitchen and bathroom technology and see those products in action!
(Insider Tip: A Wellness Tour is also in the works.)
KBB's executive editor, Chelsie Butler, will also
be leading a tour of the Discovery District in the
South Hall - an area that will be buzzing with new
and unique products to explore. Be sure to visit
new exhibitor Urban Bonfire and see the latest in
outdoor kitchen design.

BE ORIGINAL/REVOLUTIONARY/GROUNDBREAKING

P

roduct innovation is the creation and subsequent introduction of a
good or service that is either new or an improved version of previous
goods or services.That being said, what comes to your mind when you
consider product innovation? If you are in the kitchen and bath industry, does your mind drift to KBIS? If not, we would like to change
that! Product innovation is one of the main reasons KBIS exists and
has remained a must-attend event for more than 50 years.
At the 2020 show, you can expect to see hundreds of brands showcasing
new-and-improved products, as well as close to 100 new exhibitors (Insider
tip: New exhibitors will be easier to spot next year! Look for the "New Exhibitor" floor decal positioned in the front of every new exhibitor's booth.)
I can only assume you want to learn about the newest products before your
competition does, and we've got you covered. Register today to attend KBIS,
and you can count on seeing remarkable new products, experience how they
work and learn how to implement that innovation into your business.

SEEING IS BELIEVING

Our exhibitors spend a large part of the year planning (or rather obsessing)
as to how they will debut their new products at KBIS. They carefully labor
over every detail to ensure your experience in their booth and your visibility
to their products will be successful and unforgettable.
Some brands we expect to impress in 2020 are Hansgrohe and AXOR,
which will both be back with an increased footprint in the North Hall. Zip
Water is also returning for its second year; they will be showcasing the latest
in water technology and are the official hydration sponsor of KBIS Edit.

LEARN TO IMPLEMENT INNOVATION

There are so many different ways to learn about
product innovation while you are at KBIS. The
ever-popular KBISNeXT Stage will once again
be located in the South Hall and will feature 15
sessions where experts will speak to a variety of
topics that will include - among others - "The
Design Connection 101: Behind the Wall" and
"How to Win at Wellness."
Design Bites will also be back and more robust
than ever, celebrating its fifth anniversary at KBIS!
Presenters are curated from a list of applicants, and
they introduce their innovative products from the
stage with a live Q&A session with the media.
Also be sure to attend the Voices from the Industry Conference when you register for KBIS. This
year, the conference will offer 74 sessions, featuring
25 new speakers across five different categories.
As competition increases, so does the need to
stay on the forefront of product innovation, technology and training. Make sure you are checking
that box by attending KBIS 2020, Jan. 21-23 at
the Las Vegas Convention Center!
