ALPHARETTA, GA — The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) has announced the return of American Standard Brands and GROHE to the 2016 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), to be held January 19-21, 2016 at the Las Vegas Convention Center as part of Design and Construction Week.
“With the formation of the LIXIL Water Technology group representing the world’s largest global leader in sanitaryware, it is the ideal time for American Standard Brands and GROHE to rejoin the award-winning KBIS show,” said Maha El Kharbotly, chief marketing officer at American Standard Brands. “We are excited to showcase innovative products and technologies from our GROHE, American Standard and DXV brands, created through our global resources and broad knowledge base in design and development.”
When visitors tour the American Standard, DXV and Grohe booths, they will experience innovative, high quality bath and kitchen solutions, including products for easy bath and shower transformation, water conservation and varying design preferences.
The LIXIL Water Technology division operates across 150 countries, with research and development centers of excellence based in Germany and Japan. Its global sales structure is notably characterized by its diversity, encompassing a variety of brands and product categories offered in multiple markets and sales channels. This means LIXIL Water Technology can provide design and construction professionals, and their customers, distinctive and complete bathroom solutions.
“We are thrilled that our members American Standard Brands and GROHE are returning to KBIS for 2016,” said Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO. “Their renewed commitment, joining more than 500 new and returning exhibitors, underscores the value KBIS brings – inspiring, educating, and engaging the industry.”
In May, KBIS was named the fastest-growing show in attendance in both percentage growth and sheer numbers. These designations recognize KBIS among the trade shows that grew faster than 99 percent of the trade shows held in the U.S. The unparalleled growth of KBIS coupled with its co-location with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in 2013 to create the mega-event, Design & Construction Week®, has established KBIS as the premiere platform to see the best and latest designs from the kitchen and bath industry.
For 2016, KBIS and IBS will welcome a combined 3,200+ exhibitors, within more than 1 million+ sq ft of shared exhibit space. Last year, Design and Construction Week drew more than 132,000 residential design and construction professionals.
The American Standard and Grohe booths will be next to each other in the South Hall, booth numbers S8041 and S8051.
