KBIS will take place April 24 to 26, 2012, at Chicago's McCormick Place.

As part of Chicago's city-wide schedule adjustments to accommodate the G-8 and NATO summits in May 2012, the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) has moved up its annual tradeshow and conference to April 24 to 26, 2012, at McCormick Place, with the conference beginning on April 23. Owned by the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and produced by Nielsen Expositions, KBIS brings together nearly 20,000 of the industry's top dealers, designers, builders, remodelers, retailers, and other professionals directly involved in the design and remodel of residential kitchens and bathrooms.  

There will be no impact to hotel rates or availability, and the NKBA and Nielsen do not anticipate any impact on the number of attendees or exhibitors at KBIS based on the date shift. Attendees can look forward to the KBIS 2012 trade show floor featuring the newest and most innovative kitchen and bath products from 500 global manufacturers. KBIS will offer a full conference program led by top industry change-makers, as well as play host to vital networking opportunities. Candice Olson is scheduled to be the keynote speaker.  

Media and attendee registration for KBIS will be open in January 2012 at www.kbis.com.
