Drew and Jonathan Scott, hosts and executive producers of HGTV’s ‘Property Brothers: Forever Home’ and ‘Celebrity IOU’, will appear at NKBA’s State of the Industry (SOI) keynote on Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023, during KBIS in Las Vegas. NKBA CEO Bill Darcy will interview the Scott Brothers and then moderate a live question and answer session with the audience.
“I’m very excited to have Drew and Jonathan join me at the State of the Industry. Their appearance builds on the direction of SOI that we started last year with Google’s Ginny Clarke, bringing in high-profile leaders to share their perspective on the challenges that impact kitchen and bath,” Darcy said. “This year, it will be interesting to get Drew and Jonathan’s take on residential builds and remodeling in 2023, and what they see happening in the long term.”
The discussion with the Scott Brothers will focus on the future of residential, getting their insights on where the real estate and remodeling markets are headed in 2023 and beyond. During the last several years, Darcy has successfully expanded NKBA’s research to include important data on real estate and building trends.
“Drew and I have been investing in real estate since we were 18 — we’ve seen this industry through every cycle and trend,” said Jonathan Scott. “With our shows, we also get to hear first-hand what families want most for their homes, and helping them achieve those goals is what we love most about what we do.”
Added Drew Scott, “Over the past decade, we have built, rebuilt, renovated, redesigned and reimagined hundreds of spaces for our homeowners. We get to work with the best builders, trades people and designers around, and together, we’re educating people on making the best and most informed decisions they can for their families.”
The SOI featuring the Scott Brothers will take place immediately following NKBA’s State of the Association(SOA), which is the annual update given by the NKBA CEO to the membership. Both SOA and SOI will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the North Hall in rooms N109-N112. The start time is 8:30 AM and all KBIS attendees are welcome.
Drew and Jonathan are the powerhouse hosts of some of HGTV’s all-time highest rated shows including ‘Property Brothers,’ ‘Brother vs Brother,’ and ‘Celebrity IOU’. Since the first airing of ‘Property Brothers’ in 2011, Drew and Jonathan have built an empire and founded Scott Brothers Global, a company rooted in providing products, education, entertainment and inspiration to households around the world.
The brothers were recently named one of the most powerful lifestyle brands in America by Variety Magazine, with their serial entrepreneurship, extensive product lines for Scott Living by Drew & Jonathan and Drew & Jonathan Home, and advocacy work in clean energy and affordable housing highlighted as their most significant successes.
Design & Construction Week will celebrate ten years in 2023, marking a decade since NKBA and NAHB joined forces to partner and co-locate both KBIS and IBS during the show week. This year, DCW will expand to include several other shows during its January 31-February 2, 2023 timeframe, including: National Hardware Show (NHS), at Las Vegas Convention Center; The International Surface Event (TISE), at Mandalay Bay Convention Center; and Las Vegas Market (LVM), at World Market Center Las Vegas.
