Introducing the Inaugural Kitchen + Bath Show: Australia's Premier Design Trade Show

The launch of an independent kitchen and bath show has been announced by National Media, one of Australia’s most experienced and respected event organisers. The inaugural Kitchen + Bath Show is set to make its debut in Sydney on 13-15 June 2024 as a distinguished brand, transitioning from its former Kitchen + Bath Zone at Design Show Australia. This newly launched event will be tailored to the thriving kitchen, bathroom, laundry, and home storage industry in Australia.

Co-located for a Comprehensive Design ShowCase

The Kitchen + Bath Show will be held concurrently with the prestigious ArchiBuild Expo, a leading showcase for architectural building products and systems, and Design Show Australia, a sought-after marketplace for contemporary interior design and furniture. This co-location offers immense value to attendees in terms of diversity, bringing together manufacturers, distributors, retailers, cabinet makers, joiners, designers, architects, fit-out professionals, property developers and building professionals.

Meeting Industry Demand

Amidst the evolving dynamics of the Australian housing market, there is a growing demand for well-designed kitchens and bathrooms. The influx of new housing stock into the market has intensified the need for modern, functional, and aesthetically pleasing spaces. Simultaneously, the inclination towards renovating and enhancing existing living spaces has seen a steady increase. The Kitchen + Bath Show not only acknowledges these shifting trends but also anticipates the industry’s imperative to stay innovative and responsive.

Event Manager, Ash North reasons that “The increased demand for both new installations and renovation projects is precisely why this is the right time for a dedicated event to be brought to market”. The Kitchen + Bath Show stands as a pivotal gathering point for industry professionals and enthusiasts seeking to stay at the forefront of the kitchen and bath design landscape.

National Media Portfolio Director Andy Vaughan said ‘’The team have used the past 12 months to talk to both the buying and selling key players in this sector and the appetite for a show is evident, particularly as this new expo will sit alongside National Media’s already established portfolio of premier design events – Design Show Australia and ArchiBuild Expo. This is another key step to building Australia a stable of design trade shows it can be proud of and that puts it on the global design map where it can comfortably sit’’.
