ATLANTA – Registration for the 2010 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show is running 40% ahead of last year’s figures, according to show organizers.

Show producer Nielsen Expositions said it anticipates nearly 35,000 attendees at the show scheduled for April 16-20 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Attendee categories include dealers, designers, builders, remodelers, retailers, and other professionals directly involved in the design and remodel of residential kitchens and bathrooms.

“The numbers are pretty staggering at this point as our research shows that 67% of the attendees who are registered for KBIS 2010 did not participate last year,” said Brian Pagel, vice president of the Kitchen and Bath Group at Nielsen Expositions. “This has surpassed our expectations and has generated a lot of early buzz and excitement surrounding the show in Chicago this year.”
