UBM Live are pleased to announce the launch of kbb London which will take place from the 15th to 17th May 2011 at Excel. The runaway success of kbb Birmingham in March and with in-depth consultation with the marketplace has determined an unquestionable need and desire for a kitchen and bathroom show in the capital next year.
The show will target both the retail and contract audience and will showcase the latest products and services from the leading manufacturers in the kitchen, bathroom and tiling markets.
kbb Sales Director, Sam Cande commented, “kbb Birmingham was an excellent indicator that this market is regaining confidence after the last couple of difficult years. The launch of kbb London will give manufacturers the opportunity to display their products at a national event, with a key focus on the London and southern markets, offering a distinctive platform for the industry in its entirety.”
“A natural extension to the successful kbb Birmingham exhibition, kbb London will be targeting companies from across the market to ensure a diverse range of products for this exciting new exhibition. The initial response prior to the official launch is very encouraging and underlines the faith the industry has in our company to deliver a great exhibition.”
