The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), the North American authority on all things residential kitchen and bath, has introduced the NKBA Global Connect Alliance Program and its initial partners. This international strategic collaboration connects associations and organizations serving the kitchen and bath marketplace to encourage a global exchange of current and forward-thinking insights and information.
Inaugural NKBA Global Connect Alliance members include:
AMK – Association of German Kitchen Manufacturers
BiKBBI – British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom Installation
BMA – British Bathroom Manufacturers Association
VDM – Association of the German Furniture Industry
Turkish Ceramics Federation
These associations and organizations will collaborate with the NKBA to offer omni-directional support to North American NKBA Global Connect brands wishing to expand their international presence, as well as supporting the NKBA Global Connect Subscription program with their member companies.
“We are really excited to welcome these four fabulous associations to our NKBA Global Connect Alliance program,” said Suzie Williford, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer of NKBA. “We have already built a solid relationship with each and are very much looking forward to continuing to grow the kitchen and bath marketplace — worldwide — with these excellent partners. We all have much to gain by collaborating with friends and colleagues who have a deep understanding of their constituents and individual markets.”
About NKBA Global Connect
The NKBA Global Connect Subscription program offers a robust package of resources and connections to help international brands enter the North American kitchen and bath marketplace. Access to industry experts, proprietary NKBA market data, North American design and construction insights, VIP events and networking programs give NKBA Global Connect Subscribers a unique view into the market before they commit to launch.
The NKBA Global Connect goal is to create an omni-directional program, expanding visibility of the NKBA and the Association’s premier trade show event — the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) — internationally with design professionals, brands, influencers and other industry constituents. The initiative is designed to facilitate discussion on conducting business and participating in trade development events in North America and, conversely, in Europe and beyond for North American brands looking to extend their global footprint.
