Tonight I will be leaving for New Orleans to participate in the annual Kitchen and Bath Industry Show or “KBIS” put on by the National Kitchen and Bath Association. In February I was very honored and excited to be chosen by the “NKBA” as one of the “30 under 30” – Exceptional Young Professionals in the Industry.” Here are the bios of the other 29 winners.
This will be my first time to New Orleans, so I am very excited! I’m anxious to meet the other 29 participants and to take in the sights and delicious Cajun food. After we all meet for the first time Thursday we’ll split into three groups and will spend our time at the show doing research for group multimedia presentations that we will be giving Sunday morning at center stage. I will be in a group that will spend our time at the show focused on finding and identifying new “Kitchen and Bath Innovations and Trends”. The other two teams will be forecasting the “Showroom of the Future” and the “Next Generation of Universal Design”. I have been to the KBIS show three times before; twice in Chicago, 7 years ago and 3 years ago and once in Las Vegas two years ago. With the introduction of the 30 under 30 program this year, it’s sure to be memorable. Stay tuned for our findings..
Hopefully I’ll get to meet some of these fabulous bloggers that will be there as well for the Modenus Blog Tour. I’ve been told to check out Antoine’s, Galitoire’s, Acme Oyster House, Bon Temps and Cafe Du Monde. Any other suggestions?! Thanks 🙂
