Kbbreview is once again underlining its unrivalled position as the premium business media brand in the kitchen and bathroom industry by bringing together two of its most successful events under one roof.
On March 27, 2017, the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards will be joining together with the annual kbbreview Retail & Design Conference for an all-day celebration of the very best of the industry.
And it will all take place at the spiritual home of the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards – the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.
The announcement also marks the opening of the entry process for the awards. Any retailers and designers of kitchens and bathrooms in the UK and Ireland can enter now. The closing date is midday on Monday, November 21.
The decision to combine the two events comes after a hugely successful 2016, which saw the kbbreview Retail & Design Conference run as a central feature of the KBB Birmingham exhibition, and the kbbreview Retail & Design Awards declaring a total sellout a month before the event.
The combined 2017 event – where the conference will run in the day and the awards in the evening – gives attendees and guests the chance to a have a full day of networking, socialising, hospitality and an in-depth view of kitchen and bathroom retail and design trends, advice, debate, and insight.
And it’s all under one roof at the heart of the country.
“I’m so pleased that we’ve made this decision as it’s such an obvious fit,” said kbbreview managing editor and conference host Andrew Davies. “Bringing our annual conference together with our annual awards creates a hugely valuable day for anyone attending. It expands the networking opportunities beyond anything we’ve had before and allows everyone to work hard and play hard in one venue.
“In the day, the conference lets us get under the skin of the industry and highlight best retail and design practice and give everyone a unique opportunity to hear peer-to-peer advice and insight. Then, at the evening awards, we can celebrate the achievements of the very best retailers and designers with by far the biggest party in the industry and the most prestigious trophies.”
Sponsorship opportunities are available for both events or the combined entire day. Please contact [email protected] for details.
