LG’s luxury Signature Kitchen Suite (SKS) brand will host some special guests at this winter’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas when a popular industry chat group pays a visit to its booth.
The Twitter-based discussion group, @KBtribechat, was created 11 years ago by Stacy Garcia of Garcia Cabinetmakers. Her one-hour chats, held every Wednesday from 2-3 p.m. EST, draw some 30,000 designers, contractors, architects, vendors and other industry insiders who share their expertise and explore marketing and design trends in kitchen and bath products.
Leveraging the show’s popularity, Garcia recently organized a KBTribeChat Progressive Tour of sponsored exhibitors at KBIS, providing participants with insider perspectives on products and programs, along with special gifts. The tour will return to KBIS 2023 on Jan. 31 with 30 industry influencers in tow and will include a stop at the Signature Kitchen Suite booth.
Garcia will then discuss her insights and findings the following day (Wednesday, Feb. 1) during a special KBTribeChat hour hosted by Beko USA and aired live from the appliance maker’s KBIS space.
“Getting together with industry friends is one of my show highlights,” Garcia said. “Meeting in person strengthens the connections we make each week during our online KBtribeChat discussions. Sharing excitement over making discoveries together is a lot of fun and what our progressive event is all about.”
KBIS, the appliance industry’s top venue for new product launches, will be held Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2023, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, where it will run concurrently with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) and the National Hardware Show (NHS).

BrandSource members attending the show should be sure to stop by Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar between 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023, for a BrandSource KBIS Reception hosted by Don’s Appliances.
