NAHB and the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) recently announced an agreement to extend the co-location of the NAHB International Builders’ Show and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, together known as Design & Construction Week (DCW).

Created by the two associations in 2014, DCW has become the premier industry event focused on new ideas, products and technologies to design, build and remodel homes. The combined shows host more than 2,000 exhibiting brands spanning over one million net square feet of exhibit space, making DCW the largest annual gathering of the residential design and construction industry.

While IBS and KBIS remain two separate and distinct shows, one pass provides attendee access to both shows.

“We have seen extraordinary growth and success of Design & Construction Week over the past few years,” said NAHB CEO Jerry Howard. “There is a natural synergy between our two organizations, and it just made sense to bring our two shows together to create a mega-event. We are thrilled to continue this relationship and build upon this success into the next decade.”

“NKBA is proud to continue our partnership with NAHB, creating this tremendous opportunity that benefits members of both associations as well as the industry in general,” said Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO. “The kitchen and bath industry, as well as overall residential design, building and remodeling, are vibrant, as is evidenced by the robust growth of both shows since our co-location.”

The new six-year agreement will begin in 2020 and will run through the 2026 shows. The agreement includes the 2021 and 2022 shows in Orlando, Fla., at the Orange County Convention Center, the 2023-2025 shows in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and then returning in 2026 to Orlando.
