King of Prussia, PA— Last month’s third annual Kitchen & Bath Design & Remodeling Expo, the regional trade show sponsored by Kitchen & Bath Design News, has been termed by show officials as “an outstanding success.”

“We are extremely pleased with the continued and expanded support for this annual event,” said Show Manager Pati Beaulieu. “The exhibit floor was filled with qualified buyers doing business, and feedback on the conference program was exceptional.”

The show, which took place on October 17–19 at the Valley Forge Convention Center in King of Prussia, PA, was run by Minneapolis-based Cygnus Expositions, a division of KBDN’s parent company, Cygnus Business Media.

The Kitchen & Bath Design & Remodeling Expo attracted key decision-makers involved in the kitchen and bath industry from across the Northeast. The exhibit hall showcased more than 100 leading product lines, including cabinets and vanities, built-in appliances, countertop materials, bath accessories, kitchen and bath faucets and fixtures, and more.

“We appreciate the support we received from our exhibitors and professional associations, like the National Kitchen & Bath Association, in helping us get the word out to everyone, from kitchen and bath dealers and designers to architects and builders, about this valuable opportunity,” commented Tom Pellet, Cygnus Expositions Group Vice President.

“The event drew a quality buying audience, including owners, presidents, supervisors and designers with management experience and purchasing power," Pellet added. "These are the professionals our exhibitors need to see.”

New to the show this year, Cygnus Expositions unveiled an “Exclusive Buying Program,” which garnered a positive response from exhibitors and attendees alike. The Exclusive Buying Program promoted special offers and discounts from exhibitors that were only available to those who attended the show.

The three-day event also boasted a strong conference program, encompassing 20 seminars and workshops, presented by some of the kitchen and bath industry’s leading educators. The program, developed by Kitchen & Bath Design News, was expanded from past years to include two special all-morning sessions.
