Trade Show, Conference Readied for
Baltimore

Baltimore, MD The ninth annual Kitchen & Bath Design Expo,
sponsored by Kitchen & Bath Design News and several industry
partners, is set for kickoff late next month at the Baltimore
Convention Center, located here.

The Sept. 29-Oct. 2 event, expected to attract some 5,000 kitchen
and bath dealers, designers, remodelers and related industry
professionals, will serve as the East Coast’s premier showcase for
the latest in kitchen and bath products and services.

The trade show and conference is being co-sponsored by Kitchen
& Bath Design News and the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers
Association, as well as by K&BDN’s sister magazines, Qualified
Remodeler and Wood Digest.

One highlight of the show is an expanded and upgraded educational
conference highlighted by more than 40 individual programs,
including seminars, show-floor workshops and all-day pre-show
conferences.

“It’s no exaggeration to say that what has been the best
educational program in the kitchen and bath industry will be even
better in 1999,” observed K&BDN editorial director and
publisher Eliot Sefrin, who serves as conference chairman.

“Our conference program has gotten high grades from past attendees
for being highly targeted at the educational needs of today’s
kitchen and bath dealers and designers, professional remodelers,
cabinet shop owners and other leading specifiers,” Sefrin said.
“And our programs are taught by the leading instructors and
educators in the industry. They provide practical, nuts-and-bolts
ideas that attendees can take home and translate immediately into
additional profit for their business,” added Sefrin.

The show’s 90-minute seminars, according to Sefrin, have been
devised around six distinct tracks: kitchen and bath design;
business management; sales and marketing; cabinet shops
(co-sponsored by Wood Digest); technology; and a special track for
professional residential remodelers (co-sponsored by Qualified
Remodeler).

Both the remodelers’ track and the technology track are new to this
year’s show, Sefrin said.
In addition, a series of special, in-depth, three-hour “focus
workshops” will address key topics including lighting,
installation, finance and design and a series of show-floor
workshops will provide attendees with tips on solid surface
fabrication.

There will also be a trio of all-day programs prior to the trade
show with topics to cover kitchen design, showroom design and
management and business development, Sefrin added.
