The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), Feb. 19-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, packs a ton of great products and events for interior designers of all specialties. This year, the boutique-styled Salon by KBIS tent, located just outside South Hall, meets designers’ needs in three ways. Check them out.

Lightovation Lounge

Lightovation Lounge

You’ve read his blogs and watched his videos on our website, but now it’s time to bring your own questions to the Lighting Doctor himself. Randall Whitehead and Joe Rey-Barreau, the Lighting Professor, will be presenting bite-size, 20-minute presentations on lighting technology and design tips. Both Whitehead and Rey-Barreau will also have open office hours where designers can ask questions and solve their toughest lighting problems.

New to KBIS, the Lightovation Lounge brings the brightness of Lightovation to kitchen and bath designers. For designers unable to make it to Dallas last month, this new lounge will have new products on display.

As the business of design changes, these seminars aim to help designers learn what’s coming and how to adapt. Topics range from sustainability to social media marketing, and the space will also host networking events, including the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s Global Connect Mixer.
