The news reached me less an hour before I walked into the International Builders' Show in Las Vegas on Jan. 22. IBS would co-locate with KBIS in February 2014 here, and we posted the news that afternoon at www.supplyht.com and www.pmmag.com.
In the IBS media room, I ran into an editor I had worked with at another publishing company years ago. I shared the news with him, and he looked surprised. I should mention that he's a regular at IBS but doesn't attend the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show.
