NY Metro Area Site of Upcoming Seminar

EVANSTON, IL — Next month will mark the resumption, after a two-month summer hiatus, of the 2017 seminar series being sponsored in key U.S. markets by Kitchen & Bath Design News.

The sixth program in KBDN’s 2017 educational initiative, “Profitable Client Engagement Strategies for Today’s Evolving Market,” is set for Wednesday, Sept. 27 at the Hyatt Regency Long Island Hotel, in Hauppauge, NY. The first five sessions in the seminar series took place in Phoenix, Orlando, Portland, OR, Cherry Hill, NJ and Milwaukee. Seminars are also scheduled for Oct. 18 in Southfield, MI, and Nov. 15 in Silver Spring, MD.

The eight-city seminar series – aimed at enhancing the client-engagement skills and profitability of kitchen/bath dealers, designers and related industry professionals – brings KBDN “live” to major U.S. markets through a program presented by industry experts Jennifer Gilmer, CKD, and Eric Schimelpfenig, AKBD, delivering content created by Ellen Cheever, CMKBD, ASID, CAPS.

Gilmer is the owner of Chevy Chase, MD-based Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath, a leading design firm in the greater mid-Atlantic region, and Schimelpfenig is a leading authority on cutting-edge technology impacting the kitchen and bath industry, and a KBDN columnist.

Targeted at kitchen and bath design professionals seeking to optimize their client-engagement skills, “Profitable Client Engagement Strategies for Today’s Evolving Market” addresses how both traditional, brick-and-mortar and virtual environments are undergoing a revolutionary change, with the advent of new digital tools, including kitchen/bath-related apps, smart phones, mobile devices, augmented-reality and powerful new software.

The program’s emphasis is on how design firms of all size and business models can leverage traditional product displays, cutting-edge digital technologies and updated sales-presentation strategies aimed at key client cohorts, including the younger, more digitally-savvy consumers currently impacting the market. CEU credit from NKBA will be applicable.

Corporate sponsors include Best, Geberit, Jenn-Air, Plain & Fancy, Rev-A-Shelf, Showplace Wood Products and Wellborn Cabinets.
