With this being our 30th year in business, we want to be sure we are continuing to provide our customers with the best construction materials and remodeling advice our industry has to offer. We took advantage of the opportunity to send our designers to the annual KBIS/IBS Design & Construction Week held at the Las Vegas Convention Center this month. This event featured the combination of both the International Builders’ Show (IBS) and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), put on by partners National Kitchen & Bath Association, and the National Association of Home Builders.
As one can imagine, when such industry powerhouses combine to throw an event meant to both inspire and connect design-build professionals with the most innovative resources and materials available on the market, their attendees would come home with a wealth of knowledge and ideas.
Danielle Peter, one of our designers who attended the show, believes this is quite an understatement. “When you go to the KBIS and IBS show, you expect to see what’s new and exciting. What I find even more valuable, is the access one has to educational events led by the multi-generational collection of game changers, entrepreneurs, board members, celebrity designers, and peers alike. Everyone is so open to sharing their knowledge and philosophies of the construction industry with you, and that helps make a difference between a designer and design professional” says Danielle.
Omega Custom Cabinetry by Master Brand, one of our cabinet companies, promoted their newly launched frameless line, which included Ricci Black Gloss Acrylic Doors. Their exhibits were top of the line and Mark Koch, our Omega sales rep, said that even he was impressed with their displays! Omega’s bath display in Metro Quartersawn Oak Ceruse Grey was featured in “Best of KBIS”.
Another one of our product vendors, Cambria, a natural quartz counter top company, showcased a new line of slabs that were rich with color and movement–none like any of their current selections. We are anxiously awaiting these new samples in our showroom.
Also, Top Knobs–our most popular cabinet hardware company, displayed a wide variety of their products, including “jewelry for your kitchen” for those who want to glam up their kitchen cabinets.Alana Busse, our designer and show attendee, says “There were so many amazing new products at the show this year. I can’t wait to introduce them to our clients for their upcoming kitchen and bath projects.”
Georgia Sturgeon, Westside’s office and marketing manager, gained insight on internet marketing trends as well as social media tips. “This show is so immense–totally packed with products and information that one could spend a week here and not absorb it all.”
As you can see, our staff was greatly inspired by the KBIS kitchen and bath show and are buzzing with excitement to share their ideas with you. Give us a call or visit our showroom to schedule a free home consultation.
