I hope you were at our 2018 kickoff event hosted by Sub-Zero Wolf! If you missed it, you missed a good one. Veronika Eagleson, Modenus CEO and thought leader, presented the group with a dynamic recap of KBIS, including important takeaways from the discussions at the KBIS NeXT Stage, the Design Milk X Modenus Lounge, and the launching of Good X Home. What does it all mean? That our industry has great growth going on, and there are many opportunities for designers, manufacturers and suppliers alike. If you phone the NKBA main office, the hold tape refers to the NKBA as "KBIS 365 days a year." Please think of the Manhattan Chapter as your way to keep your finger on the industry pulse. Our Council is working on more dynamic programming in the coming year to keep you informed, enthused, and entertained.
I also want you to know that several of our chapter sponsors will be exhibiting at next month's acclaimed Architectural Digest Design Show in NYC. We will be sharing their booth numbers and special meet ups during the show on our Facebook page and our other social media channels. Please follow our new Instagram account @nkbamanhattan for up to the minute Manhattan Chapter happenings.
Speaking of Chapter happenings, next up is a program designed to add value to your projects by including the “Living In Place” philosophy to your designs in a dignified and artful way, followed by a panel discussion featuring key industry professionals. We hope to see you there! It's going to be an exciting year!
