KBB - April 2013 - (Page 8)

SHOW DIRECTOR’S NOTE The Big 5-0s Jim Scott has more than 35 years of diverse experience as a senior executive and leader, retiring as president of the Plumbing Products Division at Elkay. With a focus on positive change and growth, Scott has helped develop organizations in North and South America, as well as in Asia. Always active, Scott and his wife Ann enjoy a large family with eight energetic grandchildren. He is an avid golfer, skier, chef, reader and photographer. With a lifelong interest in motorcycles, Scott has traveled from Chicago throughout the U.S. and Canada. This year is my 50th high school reunion. I celebrated by just returning from my second ski trip of the winter, energized and ready for the next adventure. Sure it’s fun to look back, and I enjoy connecting with old friends, but I prefer to look forward. For skiing, that means taking advantage of newer and better equipment, high-tech outerwear and, yes, paying close attention to leading those grandkids safely down the mountain. The year I graduated from high school, the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) was formed to bring knowledge, skills and standards to an emerging design profession. Stop by the NKBA booth, share a little history, and say thanks for helping to grow a great industry. While history defines us, it’s the future that inspires us. And for KBIS, that future is solidly focused on three important areas. First, we continue to develop more choices for manufacturers to earn a high return on their investment in the KBIS brand. Second, we are engaging the audience in defining the KBIS experience. And third, we have introduced KBIS 365 as a platform for a year-round focus on everything kitchen and bath. In this event issue, you will find full editorial coverage of the many opportunities to be engaged in KBIS 2013. Come to New Orleans and… • Attend a new education program designed to help grow your business • Hear innovative keynote speakers • Add your voice to Best of KBIS with pre-show social media voting • Sit down with industry leaders at KBIS Roundtable • Audition to be the next HGTV on-air star • Share your thoughts with the industry through our new KBS365 blog • See the showroom technology of the future The past 50 years have defined an industry that works together to bring the consumer the best in kitchen and bath. Whether it is an investment for a first-time single homebuyer or a project for an empty nester, we have worked as a team to grow the industry. This cooperation among manufacturers, channel partners and design professionals has defined a generation. Now it’s time to look to the next 50 years when change and therefore opportunity will be amazing. While much of this change will be technology driven, there remains no substitute for in-person relationships. When I look at my high school reunion website, I see the faces of old friends. Being with them in September will be even better. n Jim Scott Managing Director, KBIS jim.scott@nielsen.com Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) 2013 April 19-21,2013 Ernest N.
