The inaugural National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) Global Connect Business Summit begins today.
The event, which is taking place in conjunction with the British Bathroom Manufacturers Association Annual Conference, has been designed as a day-long business summit for executives interested in (or in the early stages of embarking on) a North American distribution strategy.
According to the NKBA, the summit will address ‘macro-economic, social and political trends important to conducting business in North America,’ and is part of the NKBA’s wider initiative to connect kitchen and bathroom industry professionals around the world.
The programme, which will be delivered at the Carden Park Resort in Cheshire, will track through relevant business topics including key economic indicators, demographic and geographic influences. It will also analyse ‘shifting lifestyle and design trends’, as well as offering panel discussions that cover “go-to-market strategies” and Government trade, code, financial and tax implications.
Bill Darcy, NKBA’s CEO said, “The NKBA is the Global Connector for the kitchen and bathroom industry — forging relationships and sharing insights and innovative ideas to inform, inspire and empower the kitchen and bathroom community around the world.
“We are operating in a global marketplace. Our all-industry Association is uniquely positioned to facilitate important connections internationally.”
