The National Kitchen & Bath Association
In 1963, a network of kitchen dealers was established. Today, that network has grown into the industry-wide National Kitchen & Bath Association.
As the only trade association dedicated exclusively to the kitchen and bath industry, the NKBA represents every facet of the community. Designers, distributors, retailers, remodelers, manufacturers, fabricators, and installers all turn to the organization for support, leadership and guidance.
The NKBA offers unparalleled access to a network of peers, resources, and tools. By promoting education, professionalism and ethical business practices, the organization seeks to fuel the growth and success of its nearly 50,000 members.
For 39 years the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) has been a must attend event for all kitchen and bath industry professionals. Owned by the NKBA, it is the place to be for kitchen and bath industry professionals. In 2014 the NKBA and the National Association of Homeowners (NAHB) agreed to co-locate KBIS and the International Builders Show (IBS). Together KBIS and IBS comprise Design & Construction Week – the largest North American event for the design and construction industries. Covering over 1 million net square feet, 1,400 brands and nearly 100,000 attendees make up the event.
Attendees and exhibitors come from around the globe to discover the latest designs, products and programs.
KBIS is where the NKBA brings industry members and advocates together to share, connect and learn. Milestone research is presented, new products and programs are announced and innovative new approaches to the market are unveiled.
