Getting Excited for #KBIS2013

We’re in the home stretch for KBIS 2013 in New Orleans and things are moving quickly!  Join us in a fun, pre-show chat on March 27th from 2-3 p.m to celebrate the premier North American event for kitchen and bath professionals.


Chat with us about the special Modenus-powered Beignets & Bubbly event that will kick off the KBIS Design Studio Powered by QueX.  In the Studio, top designers Meredith Heron, Corey Klassen, Carmen Christiansen, Lori Gilder, Andie Day, Tyler Wisler, Cheryl Kees Clendenon and Susan Serra will share their virtual takes on kitchens, baths, urban lofts and outdoor spaces for the generations.

We’ll share KBIS Roundtable opportunities where participants can sit and chat with leaders of the industry such as Lou Rohl, Eduardo Cosentino and our own KBTribeChat leader, Stacy Garcia.


Hear about all the celebrations for the NKBA’s 50th Birthday, which includes parties, red carpet photos, and a special Mardi Gras gala. We’ll even share a few items from a special history center detailing everything from bouffant hairdos on “housewives” in ads to avocado and gold appliances reigning supreme to bathrooms with so much dusty rose and lace, your toes will curl.

Tell us which of the great speakers in our lineup you’re most looking forward to.

Last but certainly not least, we’d love for exhibitors to jump in and tell us about their booth events, product launches and special celebrations.

It’ll be an action packed hour.  Grab a beignet (or heck, some bubbly too) and join us for the chat!

Poggenpohl at KBIS in Chicago!



Join guest host, Mark Johnson FAIA, on Wednesday, April 25, 2012,  for #kbtribechat LIVE from the Poggenpohl booth, #1825, at the 2012 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS). We’ll be talking with Janine Flamer, Vice President, Marketing & Public Relations at Poggenpohl U.S. (@PoggenpohlUS).

Janine will be sharing the new +ARTESIO® kitchen, a concept developed jointly by celebrated architect Hadi Teherani and Poggenpohl. Going far beyond the fitted kitchens typically found in the industry, it provides an all-embracing solution in an architectural melting pot fusing furniture design, wall, floor and ceiling integrating ventilation, lighting and sound. +ARTESIO® is a comprehensive concept in which the aspects of building, architecture, home living, cooking and kitchen all coalesce, continuing the Bauhaus philosophy of “form follows function.”

We’ll also be touring the Poggenpohl booth along with several of the #kbtribechat members attending KBIS. You can expect to see lots of pictures shared by the ‘tribe.’

Don’t miss this exciting Twitter chat from KBIS, our K&B industry show! It promises to be a fun and informative hour for all. For those visiting Chicago, the +ARTESIO® kitchen will also be unveiled at the Poggenpohl Showroom (suite 138) in Chicago’s LuxeHome (@LuxeHome_Chi) at the Merchandise Mart during KBIS.

Here is the transcript for this chat.
