SHOW DIRECTOR'S NOTE
You Spoke. We Listened.
Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) 2014
Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas
1145 Sanctuary Parkway, Suite 355
Alpharetta, GA 30009
Ph: (800) 241-9034
Since we announced our plans to co-locate with the International Builders' Show earlier this year, we have received tremendous
feedback from the marketplace. It was clear that kitchen and
bath design professionals want to see more new products, more
top manufacturers, more innovation and have more opportunities to network at KBIS.
As a result, we have created Design & Construction Week™, one
of the world's largest gatherings in residential design and construction, hosting more than 1,500 exhibitors within 600,000 square feet
of shared exhibit space.
We are pleased that so many industry-leading brands have embraced this new show concept and have signed on to exhibit. KBIS is
already more than 40 percent larger than a year ago, with a number
of key brands making a return to the event, including Viking, Electrolux,

Merillat Cabinetry, Elkay, Bertch Cabinet and Poggenpohl. This does
not include the brands you have come to expect to see at KBIS, which
will also be present, like Kohler, TOTO, Moen, Delta, Rohl, Cosentino and
Wellborn Cabinets, among others.
New in 2014, your KBIS badge will also give you access to the
International Builders' Show, where you can visit with other wellknown manufacturers like Bosch/Thermador, Broan -NuTone and
Caesarstone, among others.
There are also a number of brands that are new to KBIS in 2014.
Whether a new or returning exhibitor, virtually all major brands are
gearing up to unveil exciting new products and programs for 2014.
You can see the full exhibitor list and floor plan at KBIS.com.
Beyond the show floor, the NKBA will be holding 12+ industry
courses on topics such as universal design, lighting, outdoor kitchens and more. The Voices from the Industry Conferences series will
be presented by your fellow industry peers and has 85 sessions from
which to choose. And new this year, 54 of these sessions will offer
With an expected attendance of 70,000+ industry professionals
and media, you can expect endless networking opportunities. From
design events to industry parties, KBIS will be filled with new ways to
network, interact and collaborate.
