HACKETTSTOWN, NJ — A revised set of health and safety protocols, including COVID-19 vaccination requirements and/or proof of a negative coronavirus test result, have been issued for the 2022 Design & Construction Week (DCW), the annual three-day event that encompasses the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) and the International Builders’ Show (IBS).
The National Kitchen & Bath Association, which owns KBIS, and the National Association of Home Builders, owner of IBS, last month released the revised protocols for DCW, scheduled for Feb. 8-10 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. The guidelines apply to attendee and exhibitor registrants for both KBIS and IBS, and are subject to revision, event sponsors noted.
“The safety and wellbeing of our attendees, partners, exhibitors, site workers and staff remains our top priority, said DCW organizers, adding that they are “working with our vendors, partners and the Orange County Convention Center to … deliver a safe and productive environment in which to conduct business.”
“As we get closer to returning to an in-person event, we continue to update our health and safety policies based upon current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the state of Florida and local Orlando health authorities, event organizers added. “We will continue to monitor their recommendations and will update relevant information as needed.”
Guidance related to large gatherings relative to COVID-19 and associated variants continues to change, DCW organizers said. “What will remain constant,” show officials said, “is the commitment of the NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) and NKBA’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) and to the health and safety of attendees, exhibitors, partners and staff at our shows.”
