The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), owned by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), is pleased to announce the 2023 KBIS exhibitors selected to participate in the high-energy KBIS NEXT Stage program DesignBites. This not-to-be-missed event will take place at 12:00 p.m. CT, Jan. 31, 2023. Selected brands represent a cross-section of new-to-market and larger, established brands. The line-up is sure to set the tone for the many innovations featured across the show floor.
“We continue to be inspired by the many new and established brands who are driving our industry,” said Suzie Williford, executive vice president and chief strategy officer for the NKBA. “DesignBites is a great program for brands to showcase their new products directly in front of the media, influencers and more!”
The KBIS 2023 DesignBites exhibitors include the following:
Up to six brands will be invited to present on the NKBA channel, NKBA Live, in January 2023. This virtual opportunity gives brands a chance to preview their newest, most innovative products before the show begins. These brands will be reviewed by the influencer group Designhounds at the close of the NKBA Live event. They will select one finalist who will join the line-up to present on the KBIS NEXT Stage, Jan. 31, 2023, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.
A total of ten exhibiting brands will have the opportunity to tell their new, innovative product story in a three-minute presentation to the audience, utilizing three to five slides as part of their presentation, hosted by Day 1 Host, Arianne Bellizaire of Arianne Bellizaire Interiors LLC.
A Q&A session will follow each presentation, conducted by a “shark” panel comprising influencers and media.
Two prizes will be awarded. One will go to the brand with the “Biggest Bite” (most innovative product) and the second will be a People’s Pick Award (judged in real-time by the audience for their favorite or most entertaining presentation).
