ALPHARETTA, GA -- Today the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), owned by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), is pleased to announce the 2022 KBIS exhibitors selected to participate in the high-energy KBIS NeXT Stage program – DesignBites. This not-to-be-missed event will take place at noon on February 8, 2022. Selected brands represent a cross-section of new-to-market and larger, established brands. The line-up is sure to set the tone for the many innovations featured across the show floor. 

“We continue to be inspired by the many new and established brands who are driving our industry,” said Suzie Williford, executive vice president and chief strategy officer for the NKBA. “Kitchens and baths continue to be the rooms – inside and out – that define the trends for residential living whether integrating whole home technology, living in place concepts or simply advancing beautiful living. The products featured in our annual DesignBites challenge arguably set the pace for our industry.”
