The upcoming NKBA Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) focuses on expanding home improvement elements. The opportunities for design, construction and home improvement professionals continue to grow in Las Vegas at the start of 2023 with the addition of another co-dated wholesale buying event to Design & Construction Week (DCW). Las Vegas Market will co-date with DCW, which features the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) International Builders’ Show (IBS), and the NKBA Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS). Las Vegas Market is the leading home furnishings and gift market in the western United States.
“We are very excited that this year’s IBS attendees will have the added opportunity to explore the exhibits of the Las Vegas Market for no additional fee,” said NAHB CEO Jerry Howard. “Fast, free shuttles will connect IBS, KBIS and NHS, all being held in the Las Vegas Convention Center, with the Las Vegas Market at the World Market Center Las Vegas.”
“We think having the Las Vegas Market co-date with us in Las Vegas is a great opportunity to expand Design & Construction Week even further,” said Bill Darcy, Chief Executive Officer for the NKBA. “Our Kitchen & Bath industry professionals can benefit from more value and opportunities during their time in Las Vegas by aligning with the Las Vegas Market and the other industry-leading events. It’s also a great way for all these associations to better serve their respective members as we look to the future.”
“In a few short months, Las Vegas will be THE residential design, construction, and furnishings destination for our industry. Individually, our shows are major draws for our industry leaders, offering unique, must-have products and top programming. Together, we will deliver an unparalleled experience,” said Bob Maricich, CEO of International Market Centers (IMC), which produces Las Vegas Market. “By co-dating Las Vegas Market’s thousands of exhibitors in permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits showcasing the latest furniture, bedding, casual/outdoor, home décor and gift products, Design & Construction Week now presents the full spectrum of resources not just for building a house, but also for making it a home.”
