NKBA and Emerald Expositions to Host Design + Tech Conference
The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and Emerald Expositions have developed a new conference centered on construction professionals and home technology integrators. Taking place on Dec. 11, the Design + Tech Conference will spark conversations between brands, specifiers, and installers with the hope that it may lead to collaboration and partnerships.
“Residential consumers continue to demand more complex, seamless design integration in their homes,” said Bill Darcy, CEO, NKBA. “Our NKBA 2018 and 2019 Kitchen and Bath Tech Awareness & Usage market research studies confirm consumer desire and willingness to adopt better, faster and more complex whole-home integration systems. They are looking for trusted professionals from the design, construction and tech integration spheres to work closely together, for harmonious design and installation of these systems.”
The NKBA, and Emerald-owned CE Pro, KBB put together a comprehensive lineup of sessions spanning the interior design, kitchen, and bath design categories. Specifically, the event will outline the evolving smart home industry and how professionals can best tackle these types of projects with confidence.
