Organisers of kbb Birmingham 2022 say the show will bring the industry back together after an unprecedented two years as it reveals some the major highlights visitors will get to experience.
Billed as Europe’s largest dedicated exhibition for kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms, the biennial event will take place on March 6-9 at the NEC Birmingham. It is expected to feature more than 300 exhibitors – including Quooker, Caple, Electrolux, Davroc and Caesarstone – and to attract over 15,000 visitors – including senior decision makers from the residential, retail and contract sector – over the four days.
Commenting on the return of the show, kbb Birmingham sales director Jon Johnston said: “We are looking forward to reuniting the KBB industry for four days of unrivalled networking and specifying. For many of our exhibitors this will be the first opportunity they’ve had to showcase their latest products and services, following an unprecedented two years. Kbb Birmingham offers an unbeatable opportunity for our community to meet in-person with valued partners, colleagues and visitors – we can’t wait to welcome everyone back.”
In keeping with the Government’s post-Covid-19 guidelines, the show’s organiser – Informa – has also introduced a number of best safety practices to reassure visitors and exhibitors that the event will be as safe and hygienic as possible. These include:
• Aisles widened to 4m across the show floor to allow for easier density management and physical distancing, should this be recommended by local government at the time of the show.
• Physical visitor and exhibitor badges will be replaced by digital badges that can be accessed on any smartphone. All visitors will be encouraged to register online rather than registering when they arrive at the event.
Kbbreview proudly returns as the event’s lead media partner and will, once again, produce a special show edition of the magazine available exclusively to visitors. Showing its commitment to the event and the industry, the kbbreview Retail and Design Awards will also run alongside the show on Monday March 7, 2022. Entries open Monday September 20 at 10am.
