Builders Show to Merge with KBIS

IBS will co-locate with Kitchen & Bath Industry Show beginning in 2014.

The hottest rumor on the opening day of the International Builders Show has been confirmed: the International Builders’ Show and Kitchen & Bath Industry Show will co-locate in Las Vegas beginning in 2014.

According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the two events will remain separate and distinct shows held simultaneously at the Las Vegas Convention Center through 2016, creating Design and Construction Week.

In addition to the co-location of IBS and KBIS, in 2015 the SURFACES and StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas show will take place at the same time — Jan. 21-23 — across town at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
