  • Sponsorship Opportunities with the NKBA The National Kitchen & Bath Association offers an array of opportunities for its corporate members to increase their brand recognition in the kitchen and bath industry. Through sponsorships of highly attended Kitchen/Bath Industry Show & Conference and other NKBA events, NKBA members are able to align their brands with K/BIS® and the NKBA. The NKBA offers valuable opportunities for companies of all sizes, from small dealers to multinational manufacturers, to reach key kitchen and bath professionals across all industry segments via three methods: face-to-face, in print, and online. These programs are designed to increase exposure and maximize value. The NKBA also offers an unlimited quantity of custom programs that can be tailored to meet your specific goals and budget. “The NKBA is a true partner in our marketing programs, including Rheem’s sponsorship of the Best Sustainable Bath category in the NKBA Design Competition. Contacting the press and communicating with its 40,000 members, the NKBA actively promotes both the event and our sponsorship of it. As a result, the Rheem brand is receiving higher recognition among dealers and designers through this sponsorship with the NKBA.” –Laura Butler, Communications Manager, Rheem Manufacturing Company Table of Contents K/BIS Sponsorships.....................................3-6 NKBA Event & Publication Sponsorships........7-8 NKBA Education Sponsorships.....................9-11 2 2009 NKBA Sponsorship Guide
