Combining the two shows might entice some of these manufacturers [to return] because they’ll have a larger audience, capturing both the building market and the kitchen and bath design markets. We’re looking for cabinet lines, and we’re always interested in our competitors…what products they have, etc. It helps us with our product lines.
To some degree, combining the shows also entices me to want to attend. Particularly here in the Midwest, we don’t have everything at our fingertips. We can’t see everything whenever we want because not everybody is represented here.
It would be even more enticing if the shows were held on the weekend. A three-day show in the middle of the week is difficult to manage.”
