The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), owners of the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) opened the 2023 live event with the highly anticipated National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) Design + Industry Awards on January 30, at the Encore Ballroom, in the Encore Hotel, Las Vegas Hotel.

The sold-out annual awards ceremony recognizes the design professionals and projects that are setting the bar for the way we live, work and entertain in our homes.  Each reflects the purpose of the Association – envisioning a world where everyone enjoys safe, beautiful, and functional kitchen and bath spaces. The program was generously sponsored by Beko appliances (platinum sponsor), 2020 Design Software, Ferguson Bath, Kitchen, and Lighting Gallery, and Vent-A-Hood (diamond sponsor), Hettich and Home Depot (gold sponsors), photo booth sponsor Duravit and special mobile bar sponsor, Perlick.

NKBA’s CEO Bill Darcy and EVP & CSO Suzie Williford hosted the ceremonies, presenting more than 30 awards during the evening, including the NKBA Student Design Competition winners as well as the NKBA Innovative Showroom Awards Competition winners.
