Due to health concerns and travel restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) have announced that the eighth annual Design & Construction Week (DCW) featuring NAHB’s International Builders’ Show (IBS) and NKBA’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) will no longer be an on-site event. Instead, the two groups are planning a robust, all-virtual event.
Design & Construction Week was scheduled to take place on February 9 to 11, 2021 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The new all-virtual DCW 2021 will still take place the week of February 8 with extended programming.
Registration for the virtual DCW event is free for all NKBA and NAHB members and, as with the in-person shows, attendees will have access to KBIS and IBS exhibitors and programming. The new virtual format will allow participants to see the latest product launches and cutting-edge housing and design innovations, hear from the top leaders in the industry, and take part in online education courses, from wherever they are in the world.
Further details on the virtual offerings will be forthcoming. For more information on the International Builders’ Show, visit www.buildersshow.com, and for information on the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, visit www.kbis.com.
