The NAHB and the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) have agreed to extend the co-location of the International Builders’ Show (IBS) and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) for four years through 2030.

First agreeing to co-locate IBS and KBIS under the banner of Design & Construction Week (DCW) in 2013, the first event was held in Las Vegas in 2014.

“Over the past decade, it has been amazing to see the incredible growth and success of DCW,” says NAHB CEO Jim Tobin. “We are thrilled to be able to further strengthen the relationship between IBS and KBIS and extend our agreement to host the premier event of the housing and design industry.”

Bill Darcy, global president and CEO of NKBA|KBIS, says, “2024 marks the 60-year anniversary of KBIS—a tremendous accomplishment and an opportunity to not only celebrate our growth but to set goals for how we want to continue to elevate the show and help drive the industry forward. We’ve had great success collaborating with NAHB and IBS and are proud to announce our continued partnership as part of this milestone year. As the kitchen, bath, and wider residential building, architect, design, and remodeling sectors continue to grow, it’s more important than ever to provide a central source for inspiration and innovation.”

In 2025, DCW will return to the Las Vegas Convention Center, Feb. 25-27. The 2026 event will move to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, but will return to Las Vegas in 2027 and remain there until 2030.

“DCW has truly excelled, proving to be a resounding success—and we couldn’t be more excited to extend the partnership between KBIS and IBS,” says Brian Pagel, executive vice president, residential and commercial connections, Emerald, which produces KBIS. “We’ve seen record-setting numbers of new exhibitors and attendees in recent years and look forward to building on our continued growth as one of the largest industry events in the country thanks to our shared presence with the NAHB and IBS.”

From 2027 through 2030, the two shows will continue to occupy separate halls within the Las Vegas Convention Center, but one pass will give registrants access to both exhibits. NKBA and NAHB will continue to produce separate educational programming and special events.

This week’s two shows are expected to host more than 2,400 exhibitors and over 110,000 total industry professionals spanning over 1 million net square feet of exhibit space.
