ORLANDO - The Meredith Corporation, publishers of Beautiful Kitchens & Baths, Traditional Home, and Dream Kitchens & Baths magazines, will once again sponsor the Best of KBIS awards at the 2018 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) which will take place January 9-11 in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center. The awards recognize the most innovative new products introduced at the show each year.
 
KBIS is operated by Emerald Expositions, an operator of business-to-business trade shows in the United States, with most shows dating back several decades. It operates more than 50 trade shows with events connecting over 500,000 global attendees and exhibitors.
 
“Thank you to the Meredith Corporation for once again joining us to recognize and celebrate the best of kitchen and bath innovation at KBIS,” said Brian Pagel, senior vice president, Emerald Expositions. “We
look forward to opening up submissions for Best of KBIS later this month and to working with the Meredith team to discover the most innovative new kitchen and bath products of 2018.”
 
In conjunction with the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), KBIS is an interactive platform that showcases the latest industry products, trends and technologies. Early in 2013, the NKBA and National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) announced an agreement to co-locate KBIS with the International Builders’ Show (IBS). Kitchen and bath brands that have participated in both shows can continue to choose to exhibit in either the KBIS or IBS hall and one pass will provide access to both.
 
“The Best of KBIS awards is one of our show’s most valuable programs, and one we look forward to each year," said Suzie Williford, vice president of industry relations for the National Kitchen & Bath Association. "We’re thrilled to honor our exhibitors and the best new products of 2018 alongside the Meredith Corporation."
 
During the month of August, show floor registration is free to members of the National Kitchen & Bath Association and Best of KBIS entries will be accepted starting August 23rd. A full rate schedule for registration is available here.
