The Kitchen & Bath China 2018 (KBC 2018) finished on 7 June 2018. The over 5,000 exhibitors were exhausted and certainly happy as the crowds seemed to be enormous and the trade show visitors had unlimited questions to ask about new products, innovations, and technologies. The networking sessions with new and existing customers were fruitful and beneficial. The product displays exceptional. All around, KBC 2018 was again an amazing show where the best and newest products were shown and tested on the ground. David Kohler, CEO and president Kohler Company, and Larry Yuen, president K&B Group, visited the show on the second day and launched the KOHLER Konnect section of the booth. The connected products mesmerized delegates from all over the world. The varieties of sinks especially the Artist Editions including Derring and Dutchmaster Midnight Floral attracted lots of visitors. The surfaces of these sinks invite to touch, linger, and marvel at the material, the patterns, the structures, the forms, and ultimately the functionalities of these beauties. The Kumin water dispenser that won an IF Gold Award earlier this year was a hit set-up in our kitchen suite. This product also can be voice-activated and provides hot water at set temperatures for coffee or tea, it is children-safe, and features an incredibly beautiful design. All of the over 100,000 KBC 2018 visitors probably went to see the Kohler booth. The new faucet collection Components and their surprising and fun details made a lot of the delegates stop and take in the latest designs, colors, and styles. The real hit was the Veil lighted bathroom suite with the vanity that adapts the light to the user’s mood from a warm opaque to a cooler, more efficient, clearer light. All powered by sensors that are located underfoot of the bathroom furniture. Although these mega trade shows are quite tiresome, they are also very rewarding when receiving customers, colleagues from around the world, and friends. The team had a great time and is probably already off for an early start to prepare for next year’s show. Kitchen & Bath China 2019 trade show will take place from 27 to 30 May 2019 at the New International Expo Centre Shanghai, China.
