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.

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