K/BIS Sets New Record for Exhibitors

Orlando, FL - The Kitchen/ Bath Industry Show (K/BIS), conducted at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando last month, showcased its products and services in a total of 3,605 exhibit booths - an all-time record for the event - according to show sponsors.

The 1999 K/BIS, attracted 615 exhibiting companies and more than 30,000 attendees, according to preliminary estimates released by sponsors of the three-day trade show and concurrent educational conference. Final attendance figures were not available as of press time from the show's co-sponsor, the National Kitchen & Bath Association.

The K/BIS, which marked its 18th anniversary in 1999, has been the focal point of criticism among some manufacturers for its annual status.

Next year's K/BIS is scheduled for April 7-9 in Chicago.
