The kitchen and bathroom design show moves in next door to Ecobuild to connect buyers directly with the supply chain.
Dubbed ‘the ultimate design event for forward-thinkers in kitchen and bathroom design’, K+B design London will be held on 7-9 March at ExCel London.
Created by the organisers of KBB Birmingham and co-locating with Ecobuild, the show is promising a unique buying experience from those at the heart of the construction and housing markets.
K+B design London will focus on addressing solutions specific to the capital and the south east area, exploring the new breed of communal living, student accommodation, luxury projects and small-space design. A wide spectrum of ‘future design’ products will be showcased, offering visitors a range of solutions in terms of price range, compliance and efficiency.
The organisers note that with a quarter of the UK’s construction contracts awarded in London in March 2016 and an annual growth of over 13 per cent in residential contract value in the capital, the demand for effective design solutions is arguably greater than ever before.
K+B design London will also be an interactive hub for those looking to create new business relationships or foster existing ones at the show’s uniquely-designed bar. It will centralise the floor plan and provide a networking opportunity for industry-leading names and the “most agile kitchen and bathroom brands to address the unmet needs of a design-conscious buying audience.”
Some of the brands already confirmed for K+B design London are technology CAD innovators ArtiCAD and Autokitchen and international trend-setters Dansani, Salice, and Rotpunkt. They will join a whole host of established British brands including Siamp, Harvey Water, Drew Forsyth, Design Yard, Aqualux, Wetrooms International and Basically Trade.
The only UK construction event which annually attracts over 33,000 industry professionals, Ecobuild will run in the halls next to K+B design London at ExCel throughout the duration of the show.
This co-location will bring the leading kitchen, bedroom and bathroom suppliers to potential clients within the entire built environment supply chain, as well as provide access to an extensive database of retail buyers, interior designers, developers and the rest of the ‘kbb community.’
Jon Johnston, sales director of k+b design London, hailed the show’s move to Excel London as a ‘great opportunity’. He said:
“I’m really looking forward to k+b design London this year, and particularly our move alongside Ecobuild. This is a great opportunity to create a new way for buyers and suppliers to find everything they need in the construction and design capital. Both communities will have a broader experience to source the latest products, discover cutting-edge technology and to build professional relationships for the future.”
