Watch live show events from our digital pages
Welcome to our February Issue. This issue will feature something new for us — we will be hosting the NKBA Design + Industry Awards live, right from the pages of The Retail Observer Digital Version (pages 34-35). We are extremely excited to be able to bring you this industry event live. The February issue will also guide you through some of the other events and features of KBIS 2021.
January brought us another first to cover: Virtual CES 2021. As the largest industry trade show in North America, CTA decided this year to go virtual and report they had a highly successful event. From new robotic kitchens to folding TVs and phones, many new innovations were introduced. More than 2,000 companies participated this year, with AI, 5G, mobility, health and design as key features. We will be showing many of these new products in the months to come.
Over the next few months we will be showing the actual projects from the NKBA Design + Industry Awards. March will feature the Kitchen Award winners, May will highlight the Bath Awards, and the April Issue will be the follow-up for the KBIS Virtual Show. We have three more digital awards slated to be live this year, so stay tuned.
Remember to set the NKBA Design + Industry Awards night event in your calendar and check it out live via The Retail Observer Digital Version on page 34.
Be Safe and Happy Retailing,
