Alana A. Busse presented 30 Under 30 award.
An awards presentation was held at the KBIS event for the winners of the 30 Under 30 contest. The purpose of this program is to engage and recognize young industry professionals who will be the voice of the next generation of kitchen and bath designers and offer them new opportunities for growth and development.
The winners were divided into six equal teams and obtained valuable information on a specific topic from exhibitor feedback. Each team shared their findings with the Kitchen and Bath Business magazine February/March edition. Alana was part of Team 6 and shared the following with the KBB magazine,
“Technology is the future of the kitchen and bath industry-from smart app-enabled appliances, toilets with remote controls to fully automated smart home systems… cabinets with a sleek, modern style on the outside and super-efficient organization on the inside will be a future trend.
In ten years we expect to see self-cleaning countertops. Our refrigerators and pantries will self-inventory and re-order items as needed. We also expect appliances to be able to recommend recipes based on items on hand and by learning your personal cooking habits.”
We congratulate Alana on this achievement and are excited to see the impact these young industry professionals make in the future of kitchen and bath design.
