The NWFA is a supporting organization of the sixth annual Design & Construction Week (DCW).
DCW’s founding partners, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), will continue driving the possibilities of home forward as the co-location of the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show® (KBIS) returns to Las Vegas, Feb. 19-21, 2019. DCW will bring together more than 80,000 design and construction professionals in North America’s largest gathering of the residential design and construction industry.
Members of the NWFA will enjoy discounted registration for the event, while the organization’s leaders will participate in the Design & Construction Week Executive Roundtable to discuss issues and trends in the North American housing market and exchange ideas with other industry thought leaders.
“We have seen explosive growth in Design & Construction Week over the past few years, primarily due the draw of having so many big industry players all in one place,” said NAHB CEO Jerry Howard. “The support of the NWFA only further bolsters the prominence of this event. DCW has become the premier event for our industry, and we expect the 2019 show to be the best year yet.”
“NKBA is delighted about the continuation of this significant collaboration, which brings so many industry professionals together in one place,” said Bill Darcy, NKBA CEO. “The co-location of these two important shows creates huge value for everyone involved, and it’s ultimately a huge win for consumers, as we lead the way in connecting the industry.”
“It’s important for NWFA to expand its role with DCW for several reasons,” says Michael Martin, NWFA President & CEO. "The opportunity for members to showcase a variety of hardwood flooring products; a home base for NWFA members attending the events; a voice within the residential construction industry to ensure NWFA is a resource for builders, providing them with acclimation and product specification information so wood flooring continues to be the consumers choice for new homes and renovations.”
Both shows are located at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The expos are open Tuesday, Feb. 19, through Thursday, Feb. 21. NKBA and NAHB each have pre-show activities on tap; click on buildersshow.com and kbis.com for full scheduling and information.
