New York City–based kitchen and bath specialists look to industry events, outings, and educational opportunities that cover emerging trends, products, and ideas to keep them current in the most competitive design market in the U.S. Toward that goal, ithe Manhattan Chapter devotes itself to providing its members with valuable experiences that foster professional development and long-lasting, quality relationships within the kitchen and bath community, since its charter in 1999.
Industry leaders as well as industry newcomers find professional support and fun in our annual calendar of events.
Throughout the year, members look forward to chapter meetings, market week pop-up happenings, our annual Kips Bay Breakfast and our “must attend” Winter and Summer Socials.
In addition, vendors, manufacturers, designers, and sponsors come together to provide at least six CEU opportunities to bolster your educational goals and to offer occasions where insightful and inspiring conversation can flourish.
Professional programming is offered, at a minimum, six times during the calendar year in support of members' credentials.
Programs are offered in NYC showrooms and always include networking and refreshments with the presentation.
You will enjoy dynamic speakers in architecturally inspiring locations as you learn about the latest developments in appliances, food, technology, health & wellness, building codes, plumbing, and conservation as well as foundation topics such as cabinetry, hardware, lighting, tile & stone, sinks & tubs and much more!
NKBA Manhattan continually strives to create, promote, and develop deeper, more engaged relationships with industry vendors, many of whom are our chapter sponsors. Toward that goal, we offer our members opportunities for intensive study, on a variety of subjects, in cities trade centers and shows across the U.S.
Through single- and multiple-day programming, members may travel to destinations as guests on a “Vendor Excursion,” to receive real, hands-on experience and knowledge of products and services in a way not possible in chapter meeting format.
