SHOW DIRECTOR’S NOTE Looking to Our Future If you own or lead a small or large business or serve on a board, sooner or later you are going to address the issue of succession planning. Who will lead the organization in the future? How do you find them and start the transition? Not one to shy away from big goals, I’m asking myself,“What about succession planning for the entire kitchen and bath industry?” I think KBIS and the NKBA can blaze the path to the future.We can look ahead to see what this industry will be like five or 10 years from now. We can see the forces that will shape that future, including technology, new generations of consumers, changing lifestyles, sustainability, authentic design, digital marketing, social media and others. It’s time for KBIS to be a forum for young, energetic and creative new talent who will bring new thinking to our industry. The NKBA celebrates its 50th anniversary this year by paying respect to the past while looking enthusiastically to the future. The 30 Under 30 is only one example of its search for the next generation of people who will reshape the market in the coming years. If you are ready to put your mark on the industry, we want you to be in New Orleans in April. We will also bring you, the designer and dealer, insights that will help you compete more successfully in this new market. We are very excited to announce a new marketing affiliation for KBIS 2013. For the first time in the show’s history, a hybridized agency collaborative will lead all marketing and communications efforts. The players come from Flying Camel in Brantford, Ontario, Canada; O’Reilly- DePalma in Atlanta and Chicago; White Good in Lancaster, PA; and Modenus in Orlando, FL, and London. We will transform KBIS from a trade show to a year-round brand and event that hosts the most innovative thinking in the industry. We’re confident this team will help bring new insights into KBIS, making it an inspiring showcase of everything new, where the brightest and best assemble to spot trends, experience product introductions and find the practical solutions and valuable connections that will take them into the future. With Modenus, we will leverage the power of photo-sharing sites within the design community as well as blog tours and microevents focused on the latest trends in design and products. Finally, KBIS worked with Sphere Trending to learn more about the four generations now in the market and the lifestyles they represent. These are our customers, current and future. The industry has thrived, serving the needs of the baby boom generation, but 10,000 of those valued customers are retiring each and every day. Maybe it’s time we get to know the next generations. Economic indicators are positive. We are recovering. Things will continue to get better. Are you ready to have your voice heard? The industry is listening.
