2019 marks the seventh year in the media partnership between KBIS and Modenus and this year, we are retiring our beloved BlogTour KBIS and proudly announcing Designhounds KBIS. Modenus CEO Veronika Miller shares her thoughts about the new concept: “The digital and social media landscape has changed a lot since we led the way with our BlogTour launch in 2011 and we’ve been building a new network of social media influencers and bloggers through our Designhounds brand for a few years now, allowing participation in our tours and brand campaigns not only to bloggers but all types of influencers across various social platforms. The change has resulted in more robust and diverse coverage of events and stronger engagement for our campaigns and while I’m sad to end the very successful BlogTour chapter, I am thrilled to see how quickly #designhounds gained traction with over 100,000 mentions across blogs and social media channels since its inception.Thank you to all of our loyal BlogTour legacy sponsors and new brands that have joined us this year for the inaugural Designhounds KBIS Tour, we look forward to seeing you at KBIS!”
KBIS, The Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, has supported Modenus and programs like BlogTour, Designhounds and the Design Milk X Modenus Talks Lounge for over 7 years. During this time, the show has grown not only in terms of exhibitor and visitor numbers but has become the uncontested leader in show programming, industry initiatives and a tremendous focus on individual design professionals. We could not be more proud to be working with KBIS once again and cannot wait to see the show back in Las Vegas, for 2019 with its brand new KBIS Salon edition where you’ll find the #dmmtalks lounge, Dallas Market’s Lightovation and the specially curated KBIS EDIT. Add to that, three halls packed with design, technology and building solutions as well as a rich program on KBIS Next Stage and it’s obvious why KBIS is a must-visit for your business in 2019.
