The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) is an annual trade event that highlights the latest products, technologies, and design trends in the kitchen and bath industry. At KBIS 2023, over 40,000 professionals in the industry, including designers, builders, remodelers, and manufacturers, gather to network, learn, and see what the newest innovations are in the market. The event also offers manufacturers and brands a platform to launch new products and services, as well as opportunities for attendees to attend educational seminars and connect with other industry professionals.
Each year, manufacturers go above and beyond to create memorable experiences that showcase their products in inspiring and unforgettable settings. Six booths were awarded and I wanted to give a shout out to three of the brands, as we offer them at Pacific Sales.
Best Large Booth (3,000 square feet +) Café
Honorable Mention Miele
Best of Show Kohler
Charles Pappas, Sr. Writer for Exhibitor Magazine mentioned that booths were awarded based on the following criteria:
- Do you even have to go into the booth to get a sense of the brand?
- Is there a “threshold effect” whereby you feel as if you’re stepping into a different world?
- Is there a journey or story they are telling?
- Can they demonstrate their product for real?
- Are there identifiable or even intangible details that stick with you?
Congratulations to all the booth winners. Every year, I am inspired by attending the event and I am aware of the hard work that goes into creating such a memorable experience over a few days. We appreciate all that you do to keep the industry fresh and exciting.
