MEETING THE CHALLENGE OF CHANGE

A

s many of you know by now, after much deliberation and in the ongoing interests of safety, we've determined that KBIS will be an all-virtual
event this year.
We are all disappointed that circumstances beyond our control have
mandated this decision. It's the prudent thing to do, however, because
we value people above all else. The health and safety of our community is
paramount - including our NKBA members across the continent; KBIS
attendees and exhibitors; the people on the ground who work so hard at the
show venue to keep it clean, safe and running smoothly; our partner Emerald, whose tireless staff produces the show; and our own staff of fantastic
colleagues within NKBA's national organization, who never cease to amaze
me in what they accomplish in putting together the programming, digital,
visual and verbal content, scheduling, member outreach, events, coordination, sponsorship and finance to make it all possible.
We're happy to extend free registration to our members, and, as is the case
with the in-person event, all attendees will have access to KBIS as well as
IBS (International Builders Show) exhibitors, to enjoy the full spectrum of
Design & Construction Week.
As we have stated in past columns - especially over the past eight months
- change is an inevitable part of life. And it's when we are comfortable in a
routine, thinking things are going well, that change seems most disruptive.
" If it ain't broke..., " right?
But this is when bold change is most important. And most valuable.
We stretch ourselves, challenge ourselves to become better, stronger,
smarter and more creative in the ways we do things, tackle problems and
find solutions. Most great inventions and discoveries don't happen because
people are content with whatever gadget or technology is getting the job

10

done. They happen because people seek a better way of doing things - and many times, these
creative solutions are developed by those whose
backs are against the wall. Circumstances beyond
their control demand innovation, leaving them
no option but to reinvent themselves, find a new
way, advance the status quo. The alternative is
failure -  and failure is not an option.
The magic of KBIS for so many of us is the
product discovery, the expansion of knowledge,
the networking and camaraderie. And apart from
the live aspect, we will still bring you outstanding CEU-qualified educational opportunities to
broaden your skills and learn about new technologies, innovations and trends - all in a virtual
format. We are working with our exhibitors to
create digital product discovery experiences unlike what most of us have seen before. Not only
will we be exploring new products and technologies, but we will be doing it in a whole new way.
The method of discovery will be part of the discovery, in and of itself.
All of our efforts are focused on elevating the
trade show as we previously knew it, in this uncharted territory.This is not what we expected - as
John Lennon wrote, " Life is what happens when
you're busy making other plans. " But it is what
we must do to keep our industry strong and our
community connected. This circumstance, while
far from what anyone had envisioned, has challenged us to grow, develop new ways of reaching
an even broader audience and strengthen our
connection with the KBIS community all year
long - and all over the world.
We are hopeful for the future. Our industry
fundamentals are solid, and many top economists
believe the vibrant housing market will lead the
economy out of recession. We are a major part of
that journey and will continue to contribute in
meaningful ways. Our community must continue
to reinvent, stretch, innovate and exchange ideas
to nurture the seeds of that growth.
It starts by transforming the KBIS experience.
