BKBG and Forte Pledge Support for Design Expo

Burnsville, MN Cygnus Business Media, parent company of Kitchen & Bath Design News, has announced that the Bath & Kitchen Buying Group (BKBG) and Forte Buying Group have pledged their support to the Kitchen & Bath Design & Remodeling Expo.

Sponsored by K&BDN and supported by its sister magazines, Qualified Remodeler and Design/ Build Business, the Kitchen & Bath Design & Remodeling Expo will be held October 19-21, 2004 in King of Prussia, PA at the Valley Forge Convention Center.
The Expo, designed to serve the residential kitchen and bath industry as well as the housing and remodeling industries, will bring together national and regional manufacturers, distributors and other suppliers who provide products and services for kitchen and bath buyers and specifiers, according to show manager Pati Beaulieu. It "will provide timely and compelling content in a convenient regional setting, aimed at filling a void in a key East Coast market," Beaulieu added.

Attendees will be on hand from various arms of the kitchen and bath industry, including kitchen and bath dealers, remodelers, designers, distributors, architects, builders and others engaged in residential remodeling.

2004 Spotlight Exhibitors will include the BKBG/Forte pavilion, 20-20 Technologies, Roland & Roland, Ellsworth-Kiel & Associates and International Marketing Management Group.

The Kitchen & Bath Design & Remodeling Expo's exhibit floor will also feature an organization member pavilion endorsed by BKBG and Forte, offering solutions under the BKBG/Forte umbrella.

Innovative products and services for cabinets, hardware, appliances, countertops, plumbing and more will be available throughout the exhibit floor, as well.

Beaulieu stated, "Relationships established at the Expo will be important to exhibitors and attendees as they connect in October and continue to do business. Participation in a regional event is an effective use of time and dollars, allowing professionals to acquire knowledge and network with their peers without the inconvenience and expense of travel."

In addition to evaluating products and making purchasing decisions, show attendees will also have an opportunity to attend conference sessions designed by K&BDN, Qualified Remodeler and Design/ Build Business.

Some 15 seminars focusing on kitchen and bath design, business management, sales and marketing topics will be conducted in conjunction with the three-day event. National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) certification will be offered, as well.

A complete line-up of the show's educational program will be published in future issues of K&BDN.

Cygnus Business Media is a leading, diversified business-to-business media company with a portfolio of more than 200 media products, including K&BDN.
