DCW 2018 + Orlando = Industry Magic
The fifth annual Design & Construction Week® (DCW) is once again in Orlando, Florida, bringing with it more than 80,000 design and construction professionals for three days of networking, education and exhibits. The synchronization of trade shows and markets by founding partners, the National Kitchen and Bath Association and the National Association of Home Builders has direct benefits for everyone involved in the design and construction industries.
DCW continues to be the must-attend annual industry event with the co-location of NKBA’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show® (KBIS) and the NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS). The energy at this year’s event was palpable, as attendees explored the latest products and trends at the largest annual gathering of the residential design and construction industry.
DCW will continue driving the possibilities of home in 2018. Make plans now to join us in Orlando!
