WASHINGTON -- The National Association of Home Builders and the National Kitchen & Bath Association today announced an agreement to extend the co-location of the NAHB International Builders’ Show and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, known as Design & Construction Week. The new six-year agreement will begin in 2020 and will run through the 2026 shows. 

Created by the two associations in 2014, DCW has become the banner industry event focused on new ideas, products and technologies to design, build and remodel homes.

While IBS and KBIS remain two separate and distinct shows, the combined shows host more than 2,000 exhibiting brands spanning over a million net square feet of exhibit space, making DCW the largest annual gathering of the residential design and construction industry. One pass provides attendee access to both shows.

IBS is the largest annual light construction show in the world. Building industry professionals from across the world attend to see the latest products and services from more than 1,500 exhibitors and attend education sessions, visit show homes featuring the latest trends and innovations, and network with peers.

KBIS is the premier industry event dedicated to all aspects of kitchen and bath design. North America's largest kitchen and bath trade show delivers attendees and exhibitors the destination to network, exchange ideas and build their businesses. The next KBIS will be held in Las Vegas Feb. 19-21, 2019, along with the NAHB International Builders’ Show.

The extended DCW agreement includes the 2021-2022 shows in Orlando, Florida, at the Orange County Convention Center, the 2023-2025 shows in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and then returning in 2026 to Orlando.
