December 04, 2013

The National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) will recognize the 2014 30 Under 30 group at the upcoming Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), Feb. 4-6, 2014, in Las Vegas.

“We are excited to present our 30 Under 30 young professionals at KBIS 2014 for the second year in a row,” said Nancy Barnes, NKBA director of learning. “The program launch in 2013 was a huge success with the group, which included enthusiastic entrepreneurs, forward-thinking CEOs and cutting-edge designers, all in their 20s."

In a program called “Introductions to the Industry,” the 30 Under 30 group will make its debut on Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 10:30 a.m. at Center Stage, NKBA Booth #N2163. 2014 NKBA president John Petrie, CMKBD, will introduce the young achievers to the gathering of industry professionals at KBIS.

“Introduced last year, the 30 Under 30 program is designed to capture the voice of the next generation of kitchen and bathroom professionals,” said Petrie. “The group scours the show floor for innovations, trends and new technologies, as well as sustainable business practices and emerging business models and then shares these insights with attendees.”

At KBIS 2014, the newly inducted group will work on obtaining valuable information on a specific topic from exhibitor feedback and share their findings during a Featured Speaker presentation on Feb. 6. In this session, the 30 Under 30 group will present their research on critical kitchen and bath industry topics and answer questions regarding any issues that professionals face in their businesses.
