Applications closed and exhibitors selected. KBIS is offering eight exhibitors the opportunity to participate in the official media tour. The guided hard hat tour offers exhibitors the opportunity to receive time with a curated group of registered editorial press to showcase a new product, program or system. Members of the media will determine final tour participants.
Each participating exhibitor will receive up to 15 minutes with the registered editorial media on the tour in their booth. Each participating exhibitor will also have the ability to submit PR materials to be provided to each tour attendee.
The information in your KBIS Connect profile will be pulled for use in the printed show directory. You MUST log in to KBIS Connect and complete your profile. It is especially important that you also select your product categories, as these are not carried over from previous years. Deadline coming soon.
