Design + Tech Connection will take place on December 11, 2019, at Convene, 117 West 46th Street, NYC. The one-day conference, powered by the NKBA, KBB and CE Pro, will bring the brightest and most provocative minds from design, construction and technology together, to inspire collaboration and partnerships among brands, specifiers and installers.
“Residential consumers continue to demand more complex, seamless design integration in their homes,” said Bill Darcy, CEO, NKBA. “Our NKBA 2018 and 2019 Kitchen and Bath Tech Awareness & Usage market research studies confirm consumer desire and willingness to adopt better, faster and more complex whole-home integration systems. They are looking for trusted professionals from the design, construction and tech integration spheres to work closely together, for harmonious design and installation of these systems.”
Programming for this new conference is being developed with an eye toward educating interior design, kitchen and bath design and building communities about the speed at which the tech field is evolving, and how to smartly design residential spaces with confidence and authority.
Industry authorities including Darcy; Julie Jacobson, founding editor of CE Pro; Chelsie Butler, executive editor of Kitchen & Bath Business, and other industry experts will lead conversations, panel discussions and presentations on the Internet of Things (IoT), home automation, security, wellness-related technology, principles of good design integration and how to create a smart business partnership to deliver beautiful and functional residential spaces.
