I’m always excited to travel to the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show KBIS in Las Vegas because I get to see what is up and coming in the world of kitchen and bath design. More than 500 manufacturers and brands have committed to exhibit, and KBIS will be continuing its successful Voices from the Industry (VFTI) conference sessions. Part of Design and Construction Week KBIS takes place January 19-21, 2016, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
