Brands may apply now to be a part of the tour
(Alpharetta, Ga.) – October 11, 2019 – The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), the destination for kitchen and bath design professionals, is pleased to once again welcome DJ Carey, editorial director of CTC&G magazine, as she guides a select group of design professionals on a VIP tour of her must-see KBIS exhibitors and products. Now in its third year, this exclusive tour continues to be a popular event for both attendees and exhibitors.
“KBIS is an important resource for our interior designers, many of whom have never been to the show before. Seeing the vast array of appliance, cabinetry, decorative plumbing, surfaces, lighting and more at one mega-location is so efficient,” said Carey. “I am excited to introduce designers to new products and inspirational show floor programming at KBIS for the third year. I have no doubt the 2020 event will deliver.”
Carey will select 10 - 12 KBIS exhibitors to be included on the tour which will be held on Wednesday, January 22, 2020. To be considered, interested brands must submit an entry form highlighting one key product to present to the designers. The deadline to submit an entry form is November 8, 2019.
“We are proud to host an event curated specifically for interior designers by CTC&G and value our partnership with this leading design and lifestyle publication,” said Amy Hornby, show director, KBIS. “DJ brings a remarkable level of knowledge and authority as a result of her regular participation at KBIS over the years. Her knowledge of the show and its exhibitors makes her uniquely qualified to host new and veteran attendees.”

In 2018, both organizations extended the agreement through 2026. The mega-event returns to Las Vegas Jan. 21-23, 2020.
