KBIS: The Best Way to Stay Informed About the Industry
January 8, 2018

If you keep close tabs on the home improvement industry, you'll be hearing a lot about KBIS in the coming weeks. MR Direct has attended KBIS for several years, and we are thrilled to return in 2018.

But what does KBIS even stand for? It's an abbreviation for the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, put on by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA). This year's show is January 9-11, 2018, located in Orlando, Florida.

KBIS is an inspiring platform where over 600 industry leaders come together to show off their latest and greatest products and technological advancements. It's the place to be if you want to keep a finger on the pulse of the industry, and get the inside scoop on what's trending. KBIS is also the perfect setting to chat with manufacturers and compare products side-by-side.

To acknowledge some of the remarkable innovations and products, an annual competition is held known as the Best of KBIS. Categories include:

Best in Show
Best of Bath
Best of Kitchen
Best of Smart Home Technology*
Best of Outdoor Living
People's Choice Awards
Innovative Showrooms
Impact Award

*I'm excited to say, the MR Direct Home Reality VR app will be considered for the Best of Smart Home Technology Award.

For the past few weeks, MR Direct has been "warming up" for sunny Orlando. We're busy perfecting our new displays and preparing to showcase our newest products and technology. Plus, our booth will have fresh, warm cookies this year so there are plenty of reasons to stop by and say hello. We'll be located in booth W1185.

As we continue to prepare for the tradeshow, I encourage you to follow our different social media platforms to stay up-to-date on the latest KBIS happenings!
