Author Gary Vaynerchuk to Keynote KBIS 2013

March 20, 2013

The 2013 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) will kick off with a keynote address by Gary Vaynerchuk, a New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author, as well as a self-trained wine and social media expert. Titled "The Thank You Economy," Vaynerchuk’s presentation will be held on Friday, April 19, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:45 a.m.

Vaynerchuk’s keynote is designed to inform kitchen and bath professionals on how to succeed in the current era of social media. According to Vaynerchuk, social media offers businesses the chance to succeed by reigniting old-fashioned, customer-focused values. His address will illustrate how authenticity, originality, honesty and good intent – powered by the Internet and social media – can create competitive advantages.

Vaynerchuk’s first business book, Crush It! Why Now Is the Time to Cash in on Your Passion, hit the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Associated Press best-sellers lists in its first weeks of publication in October 2009. His second New York Times best-seller, The Thank You Economy, details the effect of social media on business.

Vaynerchuk was also featured in Decanter magazine’s 2009 Power List and named Innovator of the Year at Wine Enthusiast’s 2009 Wine Star Awards. With close to 1 million followers on Twitter, Vaynerchuk was included in BusinessWeek's list of the top 20 people every entrepreneur should follow.
